How do you take pictures of paper money?

9 posts in this topic

There is a long thread ATS that describes scanner settings to get the best picture of currency, and a scanner's benefits over a camera. I believe the people that are serious about paper money all use scanners.

To take clear images of your notes, scanning is the way to go.
