On many of the digital cameras, you can select the size of picture you want the camera to take. For example, I have mine set at 640x480 pixels. That way you don't have to do any resizing. It will also fit Jeff's criteria,

Interestingly enough, Gary, it is better to take a large picture (I take 1280x1024) and let PC software resize it. The software has voodoo algorithms that will maintain much of the quality while getting to the same result. Where I have taken the original image at 640x480, I have lost the quality from the start.

Just something to consider. I use a gallery software package for my website called - Gallery. I load a huge image into it and it creates both a thumbnail and a 600 pixel wide image automagically. I then post the 600 pixel image to my album here for others to see and post a link to the image in the forum.

Hope that is helpful.

Chuck, man I'm glad you posted that! I thought it was the other way around. I thought you lost resolution when you sized down at the PC. I have been unhappy with the quality of the shots I've been getting and wordering why I couldn't seem to fix it. I'll sure change that.

No problem, Gary. My pictures are poor just due to the low res camera I have. Oh well, better sell enough pens and bowls to buy a better one [;)].

One of the down sides to using the high res, it really eats up the space on your memory stick. I use the the 640 x 480 for all my pics, and keep mem stick as a back up when full. I can ussually place 1500 photos on a 128M mem stick.

Okay Anthony, then please tell us what your set up is like because all of your photos are awesome as are the pens themselves.

Glad you like the pics Dale, I think most of them are out of focus. There is no spot metering thru the lens, so to me, they are acceptable for now.

But I take 90% of my photos in this set up,

Ed, had posted it, I found them new on Ebay for 150.00, it's not perfect, but works well for me, because is is portable and I can take it home, shove it under the table when not in use and have it set up in a minute. That , a real good tripod, my old Sony and patience. Anthony

Anthony, in your pictures the pen appears to be shot with the camera directly above the pen. How do you accomplish that with the above set up?

Gary, I don't use it like they show it. I have the botton light off. Top light is on and tilted back just for enough to allow my camera to get in. The camera is actually on a tripod with the head tilted between 45-90 degrees. That's what is nice about this, you can adjust the above light source around real easy.
