    Cool elvis picture collection

    hi guys,
    I just wanted you guys to know what im up to at the moment with all my picture collection.I have been sorting,scanning and making back up copies of all my picture collection.I started with the inside jailhouse rock book then onto inside king creole and all ready i have 150 pictures on cd .I have nearly all the concert book apart from a few (enter the dragon and a couple of others ).I am starting of with the movies firstly as it is hard to obtain quality scans on the net and i want to build my own little picture nest .Nextly i will move on to my 70's stage collection,by the end ,if possible,of scanning each picture and burning to disc i predict to have over two-three thousand pictures on back-up disc, .
    Isnt it such a great feeling searching your elvis books and finding a real beauty of a picture,or is that just me .Any how i got to get back to those books,hope i havent bored anyone to death by reading this its just im so excited at just how big my picture collection is i wanted to tell another elvis fan.It would also be nice if you could reply with books you own and maybe talk about your faviourte,speak to you soon friends .

    Hi E.L.V.I.S,

    you started a project, that I'd like to do for years.

    But I'm a little afraid, if I make scans from a book, that the book will be damaged after this. Some books a hard to handle.

    I have the book "Enter the Dragon". Tell me how do made your scand (dpi and so) and if I have a little bit time, I'll scan the book and we can make a deal.

    Cool

    i usually scan them at 200 dpi to 250 dpi and if i really like the picture sometimes more.I suggest everyone with books make back up copies on a disc as then you are assured to have perfect copies when ever you want

    To scan my book i always remove the protection cover that can get damaged easily while scanning so be sure to remove it.Then if using a hard back book i will get a table or box the same height as my scanner and place it next to the scanner.Then simply place the book over the box and scanner,easy

    I got to get that 'enter the dragon' book,its my faviourte suit .I have around 600 pictures on back up now,but theres tons more to go

    E.L.V.I.S,
    Hey Unfortunately I don't have any picture books at the moment. My small Elvis collection consists of what I have gathered on the net, some magazines or what others have been kind enough to send me. I wish I had started collection pictures along time ago, but unfortunately it didn't happen that way, so I am working on a collection now...I noticed that you stated you scanned some redlion pictures, any chance you could send me some? Those are some of the jumpsuits I am looking to collect for my Fantasy Boxset for my Elvis On Tour alt covers....Here is the jumpsuits I am looking for really good quality scans of...
    1. Blue Nail Jumpsuit
    2. Burning Love "Red" Jumpsuit
    3. Owl Jumpsuit
    4. White Fireworks Jumpsuit
    5. Philadelphia Spectrum Jumpsuit
    6. White Pyramid Jumpsuit
    7. Redlion Jumpsuit
    Any help would be greatly appreciated..I posted the covers for the boxset that I am working on....not to long ago so I could get comments, but haven't heard anything...my email is jaimes_dad@yahoo.com
    Thanks Again and have fun with your collection
    JCB
