being new on this group I hesitate to jump in, but I read this to my
husband. His suggestion is instead of regular photos, or putting on
flatbed, use a video camera. Use tripod, and with lighting, and what
ever background you want to put jewelry pieces on
Initial required equipment:
video capture card: (will explain later)
and a computer.
Video capture card: gives you the capability to input video signal
directly to computer. Can buy at compusa or other computer store, and
they will install it, and ask to put in software too. Need just simple
card, not fancy stuff. About 100.00 for capture card, most come with
simple software. Talk to techs at the store.
If you want specific info, husband will give more specifics…

concept would be this: (he is dictating this to me) video tape the
object for about 3-5 secs in each view you desire. Then you play tape
into computer using the software that comes with the capture card, to
input the video. Each second = 30 frames of video. Using the software
you choose the frame or frames that best depict the object. Save the
choice as a Jpeg file on your hard drive. Then use the jpgs for the
photos…just like if you scanned the object.
That’s all folks…according to husband. I have just used the object
on flat bed scan for now. He hasn’t taught me how to do it yet.
Hope this is not a stupid post to the group.
