The pictures are too dark - can you find some daylight and do this again? L

dlom (author)lemonie2009-02-21

ok, ill try again

lemonie (author)dlom2009-02-21

From what I can make out the actual origami looks good. Unless you can use something like Photoshop to adjust the images you've got? Web-cam? L

lemonie (author)mistdemon1232010-04-05

No, I just spend a long time looking. I try to be helpful, but I'm not always. Do you ever look at Answers - a few of us try to be helpful there.

unfortunatly, photoshop is too expensive

lemonie (author)dlom2009-05-31

Something like, I bet GIMP will do the same?
