CPK Posted August 6, 2022 · Supporter Share Posted August 6, 2022 As the title says, a picture is worth a thousand words! I really enjoy seeing all the creative and cool coin presentations here - and we've got some incredible talent on this forum - so I thought it would be fun to have a thread where we could post our presentation experiments, ideas, tips, etc. What I've been doing for my coin images up till now is pretty simple: photograph the coin with a solid black background, put the obverse and reverse images together in Paint, then add the written info in a uniform and consistent format. Works fine! But there comes a time when you want to do more. Lacking any sophisticated know-how when it comes to editing software, I've been taking my time figuring out how to do things. (Have to again credit @LONGINUS and @HipShot Photography for the inspiration! Love your work!) Earlier today I posted a picture of my new Titus denarius. I liked how that came out, but I wanted to touch it up more, and also add some historical information. So here is the end result: I need to refine how I separate the coin from the background - it's a little ragged - and of course I wish I had a better camera for the photos. Still, I think it turned out decent and I'm pleased with the results. Anyone else been playing around with their coin photo presentations? Let's see them! 🙂 21 1 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
