3DO Box Scans

Post by Lemmi » Thu Feb 01, 2007 9:23 pm

ok i finally got my scanner to work but not at full power, it wont scan any higher then 100dpi
would anyone want these? or is there some kind of copyright crap for these also?

i have scanned all 150 of my game boxes, but i have to scan some other things that werent released in boxes like the Woody Woodpecker volumes and rescan a few that are blurry

here is an example, its scaled down because of the photobucket requirement http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f105/ ... 6front.jpg

they are normally 530x1100 around those parts

I wouldn't mind having box scans of games that I have reviewed.

Any chance you could water mark them in some way? The only reason I mention it, is that we may unwittingly, spawn a flurry of pirate games on ebay. While I'm not adversed to sharing, I'm not in favour of some C**T charging $30 just because he has a CD burner and a colour printer! If you follow my drift.

:wink:

What we need is like a gallary or something? What do you think?

i thought about the watermark thing but i have no idea how to do that, i dont think i have anything that will watermark, all i have is a digital camera photo impression program and i just use that for screenshots

do you know of any free watermarking programs? or atleast the names of some good ones that i could search for myself?

what should i put in the water mark and where on the boxes should i put them?

I used Paintshop Pro. Or at least I tried to. What I ended up doing was sticking the URL to my blog in the corner.

ahh i see, i just tried photowatermark professional and there is way to many options and if you click something you didnt mean to it removes something from the program that i cant figure out how to get back
plus it reduces the size of the pic to 85% of the original and makes it blurry also i have no idea what many of the options mean

i need something simple, because i can do what you did with my photoimpressions program but i would have to do them one at a time on over 300 images UGH! :)


here is the one i was playing with (its not a 3do image) :)

i cant seem to find the place where enter your text is located so i can remove it, and while looking for it i removed the box for entering text period this thing is confusing

Other than that it's fine.

ok hows this? im still messing with the program and the help files that come with it suck ass, it gave me a headache yesterday so i quit

here is another one i just did
http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f105/ ... 0Front.jpg

EDIT ---- How about the name of this one? :D
http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f105/ ... N0292f.jpg

remember these are scaled down for photobucket
the normal sizes are around 540x1028 in that area
and if i did them like this all the watermarks would be in the same area for front and back of the boxes

its hard to see on black boxes its in the middle at the bottom

I can't seem to copy & paste any of the scans you listed under my reviews. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? (Insert image doesn't do it either)
