View Full Version : scanning/photographing scratchboard

I would like tips or thoughts on the best way to get scratchboard images onto your computer. I have tried both scanning and photographing with my digi camera and have difficulty getting either to pick up the details in my scratchboard works. I have seen some great, sharp, detailed images of scratchboard images on here, and would love to know how you get these great images?

HI Cathy,

When I scan my boards, I set the scanner to 300 dpi, 24bit color. See attached image of my scanner settings. Hope it helps! The image size after scanning is about a 22meg file.
