Re-scanned my Mantle and Mays using different settings.

600 DPI, brightness 35, contrast 25


Much better! Still going to play though as I think Mick's borders aren't that dark in hand.

I do have a plastic sleeve in both holders on both cards. The sleeves were too big for the holders so I cut down the sides so they would fit in the holders.
That is the line and other anomalies you see across both top borders and possibly elsewhere?

I am happy with how I got them looking but I will continue to play,,,,,,,,,, just not tonight.

They look good but I almost never play with any settings on my flatbed scanner. Neutral settings seem best...

My default settings, imo, make my cards, especially the borders, look gray.

I am still not 100% happy with what I have posted above as they still look off somewhat compared to what they look like in hand imo.

On pg 10, post #96, are the scans of both cards using the default settings. These cards and the other cards I have posted since joining, using the default settings, make my cards look a lot worse than what they actually are.

Still not done playing so hopefully I can find the settings that make them more realistic looking, but if not, then I'll have to settle with the some of the settings I have used above.

Default settings. Different, newer card

Edit: Just proved, imo, that my default settings make my cards look grayer than they actually are.
