I'll try to explain, but in not too good at it
Not sure if this will work I haven't taken much time on it obviously


I'll use this image and multiply it


Shift it about 1/4 mm up and to the left
And get this (now this will be a drastic jump just to show first contact to last
Hopefully you get the idea compared to the stamp in question,maybe

Please, stop with that eternal trickery. You are using captures of scans. At each stage, there could be an algorithm that changes the image. You then focus os an area, again using a programmed algorithm. It is highly unreliable. It does npot show the whole stamp.

Fair enough, try it yourself
I see no benefit in trying to deceive

I have no interest in trying it.


If I understand your post, you multiplied an image and overlaid one image on top of the other. That shows the shift is caused by your manipulation not by the difference in the same stamp.

It would explain the 1/4 mm and the right corner shifting up

could it be the thickness of the paper affecting the image?
Something affects the image to compensate anyway

I am completely with NSK.

More and more of these topics are getting sidetracked and polluted with this photographic manipulation that adds nothing. It is like a dog with a new toy that will not stop squeaking it.

It does show both sides of how technology can be used. Jaxom (Rick) does amazing work creating plating tools using scans. It is an incredible body of work. And then there is the stuff above. It makes no sense.
