OK - so check the auction pic and then look at the same pick with just the brightness and contrast altered.


Below is the auction pic:



Below is the pic with a heck of a lot more color breaking creases:




Or is it just me and this really is a F/VF???????

where did you get the other pic i would say 5.0-6.0


Other pic is that pic just lightened in Photo Editor. There has definitely been electronic manipulation of the image beyond the norm. I used to own a nice copy of that book and those neon colors were just not hapening there.

Geez pov....you're full of tricks...I seem to always learn something new from you that truly comes in useful in the real world... thumbsup2.gif


I'll tell you - it is the easiest thing to do. Go to the auction and supersize if available. Right click the image and COPY. Open a program like Adobe or Photo Editor and Paste it into a new image. Then just fiddle with the brightness, contrst and gamma. I have passed on a lot of books that way - but seeing an Adventures Into The Unknown #1 got me excited but seeing the end result kind of brought out the activist in me! grin.gif
