1. When posting images of full words, make sure to include the outer open areas of the devices. _GOD_.
The full outside edges will be helpful to make side by sides. Note your image of GOD? The full devices are not there on both ends. Without the full outside edge, it makes it harder to determine where the devices would have ended. I crop those edges on the outsides of the word. The full view is compared with other normal/doubled dies.
2. Like the word TRUST. If you have the full word it is a lot better than having parts of the word. Then I have to figure out how much to rotate the image to make them connect again.
Also I have to resize to make them the same height. On the motto devices the IN GOD
is rotated 35 degrees CW.
On TRUST it is rotated 30 CCW. That is how I create my images.
Thus you have the full word and no altering that word. Also on 'WE', I included the 'D' in GOD and The first 'T' in trust in the same image.
If you can see the spread of a DDO
from that distance, it is too minor to consider. If you have to have a single device enlarged to huge, it is too minor to consider. Coin contact and very minor doubled dies, aren't much in demand. Just like minor RPMs, are hard to list or consider listing. Too minor, they will not get listed.
3. Liberty also is better in a single word than broke down. On the sites they break them down. But with the devices straight, it makes if easier. Thus you just have to consider the size of the devices in the image. (yes they can be two different sizes) So in order to use these, then I place lines under the devices to make sure they are level, before sizing them. That makes them all the same exact size:
4. Also we get a lot of complaints here on the forum about rotated images. We are used to seeing things a certain way. I prefer the devices level. Date and Liberty is easy. So if you can't rotate the images because you don't have the correct software, do this: Take the images with the devices lever, before clicking the image
. Can you imaging being called down to a police line up and they people were all laying down on the floor? Could you ID a suspect with them all laying flat on the floor? We are used to seeing people vertical. That way height and weight will be noticed. Context is better if they are in the position we are used to see them in. Same for coin devices. Rotated with the word horizontal makes us easier to determine what really is there, and what isn't there. So before you click, make sure the devices are in the position that we can determine what is there. That will help all to learn and have more useful images for the threads. Easier to have the image angle before the click. Slight rotations may still be needed though, but easier when the though was put into the image, before the shot
: How can taking the right image at the right angle help show what I see on my coins?
