    Hello all, this set celebrating Jamaica's Postal Centenary could have been attached to several of our recent themes. I chose this one.

    James,
    looking at your post with some envy,I wonder how you can produce
    such accurate scans !
    I just put the stamps into a stock-card and place them into the scanner.The result looks like:

    Yours look much more elegant.Especially because you can put
    text into the picture.But also because your stamps are
    accurately placed and no lines appear.
    How do you fix the stamp into position ?
    Do you use a special programme to do the job ?
    Is it time consuming ?

    Regards, Werner

    Hello Werner, It is quite simple really, the images with text are from my planned database. I open two copies of Paint, one for my image and second as a workspace.

    For a single stamp I use a plain background and place the stamp about central then scan at 300DPI, add text in a contrasting colour, then trim to size.
    Name and save.

    For sets of stamps I use an A4 sheet (textured preferred) since the move I cannot find my favourite backing sheets, I use a low-tact adhesive spot of about 1mm between perfs, (similar to post-it note adhesive) to align the well spaced stamps, with my old canon scanner mounted upside down I slide the stampsheet onto the lid and lower the base then scan at 300DPI etc. I use generous spacing to allow for text.
    Sometimes I cut any surplus spacing and crop to size.

    I rarely scan stamps on stock cards, maybe only for reference or for keeping tabs on those that I trade (so as not to duplicate stamps on subsequent trades).

    Regards, James.

    Hello all. Scanning packs of stamps for future dating and sorting. I have here about 600 Australian stamps, they were scanned in sheets of about 40 stamps, the sheets were saved as "Australia A" through "P" surplus black areas were removed to reduce saved image size.
    I accidentally cropped the right side of the image but it's not important. Each page of stamps are saved in glassine envelopes using the sheet names, glassines are saved in a ziplock bag marked Australia.
