    dont tell me its your scanner/camera/phone...

    ive stumbled across this a lot in the more or less recent past.

    like "sorry for the bad pic / taken with my crappy phone / the colors are not like in the original / the original looks entirely different / ...."


    you post something for others to give you input, but you dont invest any effort into having it resemble what you actually got?
    photoshop (elements (which literaly comes with every second can of soup)) or freeware like gimp can handle these issues pretty well.

    theres just no point in asking for input on a picture in general, if the issues could aswell be due to bad reproduction. fix it... skew/transform it, paint over it (use different layermodes), color/level/contrast adjustments, ..., make it resemble what your image looks like to you under your working conditions as close as possible.

    a blurry, dark, noisy and distorted photo of some drawing/painting, is NOT due to bad equipment, but lack of commitment. you dont put forth effort? youre less likely to recieve any.

    done ranting .

    (ps theres no point in trying to convince anyone the anatomy in the original would be better )
