    Very cool collection. How did you scan the steelbooks? I am thinking of doing the same and wanted to have some insight. Yours came out perfect!!

    I scan them at 300dpi. I do have to go in and adjust colors in Photoshop because the lid not being flat on the scan bed causes issues sometimes. Then I go in and crop out everything but the steelbook.

    Other problem that I've noticed on my personal scanner but not my work scanner, the small variation in depth from the steelbook covers and the spines caused the spines to appear blurry. Work scanner handles this without issue, dunno why.

    And a nice microfiber cloth to remove finger prints, especially on glossy steels. And the scanner glass itself.

    I don't mind :D someone's gotta do it. Plus, I have a template that's the blank space, so once I've straightened and colors the pic, all I do is select the blank from my template and delete it from the steel pic, takes off the corners and the top and bottom of the spine.

    I have noticed on some steels a weird finish. The back of Iron Man 3, the front of The Rocketeer, and a few others, my home scanner somehow catches the finish. It's most notable on Iron Man 3, you can see it on the front and back, but the back is where it really stands out:

    Love your collection, especially jealous of the PotC steels!! I think I might try to mimic your method and scan some of mine in, just for cataloging purposes :p

    Thanks! I've decided that when I buy a steelbook, I buy it for me.

    If I want to sell a steelbook, I wont hesitate to pick up a second copy to hold on to, but I feel like people are missing out on the true beauty of their steels leaving them sealed. Sometimes the steels just pops once you get that shrink wrap off it.
