Final Photograpy

Once part of the surface of a tablet has been coated with ammonium chloride it is quickly photographed before the coating evaporates. At least two photographs of each side of a tablet under different lighting conidtions are initially made. If these are not satisfactory the tablet may be recoated and additional photographs taken.

These digital images are then imported into PhotoShop© where the brightness and contrast are adjusted in order to enhance the differences between tablet surface and any text and/or impression(s). Compare this publication quality image of a tablet with that of its initial appearance above.
