Just me again...this hasn't scanned very well...and looks 'smudged' and a lot darker than what it really is...anyway...it gives you a bit of an idea, I guess... :(

Thanks for looking... :)

Hard to say because the image quality isn't very good. It looks like the foreground is very light but the background very dark and I think it might look better if the foreground was a little darker and the background a little lighter (atmospheric perspective). But it depends, if your painting is a night scene then it can be different.

Thanks, Michael.... the image is shocking...I'll have to try scanning it again...I'll take a photo of it and try that way....it's almost impossible to see this way.

Thanks for your time and comments. :)

I use my digital camera to take pictures of my paintings. I find it much quicker and easier. Just set up enough lighting so you don't need the flash.

I don't have a digital camera, but I have taken a pic of this with my regular Pentax...just haven't had the film processed yet. Thanks, Michael. :)

If you have paintshop pro or photoshop or something on your computer, you could lighten the picture.

Also, you could increase the resolution that you scan the pic at which would remove some of the blur.
