Step 4: Putting it together.

Insert mirror with stand in bottom box so mirror is at 45 degree angle.. (Mine fit through the hole,)
Open top box and insert glass at 45 degree angle.
Camera should be in top box behind glass. (i put mine in an envelope glued to the back of the box.

It might be a Linux problem (?.....), but you could easily improve your pictures by enhancing contrast in almost any photo application running on Windows...
My brother is a Photshop expert. he could not do anything.
Thanx for the comment. Nothing to do with linux. Photoshop could not even do that well. You should have seen the original picture. . Been there done that. I just did not take the picture in a better lighted area. Plus I used a cheap camera. My good camera died. When I get better equipment, the pictures will be better. I might retake them anyway. Do not have time right now.
You can tweak the brightness &amp; contrast to get rid of the misty/foggy look. However, it emphasises the lack of information in the images and they look grainy.<br> <br> L<br>
Compared to a lot of pictures I have seen on this site, they are pretty good. In any case, the pictures are good enough to get the idea across. I am not a photographer. Missing the forest for the trees here.
<br> I meant that I had tried <strong>Bob</strong>'s suggestion and that was the result.<br> You do get the idea across.<br> <br> L<br>
Thank you for your clarification.
Could you &quot;simplify&quot; the build by using an LCD monitor (or even a laptop) &amp; placing it directly in the box in place of the mirror...
Yes, but I think the text would be backwards if what I am told is true. Then the text would have to be flipped. I wanted something dead simple to deal with.
