Actual size is A4, when I expand it I don’t get pixelation. I will try to take a better image though.

What issues on the original glass do you want to clean up?
Does the top glass have same issues?

When you increase the image to A4 you will see the paint has flaked away and left the lettering in poor condition , I wanted to ‘clean up’ the lettering before I have the image made into a vinyl sticker. Top glass is fine.
Thanks for your help. :cool:

A vinyl sticker is going to be a poor replacement. Surely someone knows a better way?

Not many of the Sega artworks survived the cracking and flaking.....does not look too bad until back lit, which I assume is the main issue.....I would probably live with it. I also assume vinyl was not meant, but clear by all laminate....

I agree BP, have often resorted to MS Paint, can just about use this :burp:

Hope you don’t throw away original ;-)

You're right Tom it looks OK until backlit, then it looks awful.
I like the look of these when lit up, rest of the machine is very good and this lets it down.
When I said vinyl, I have some Perspex clear 6mm to mount the photo on or sandwich it between two plates. Open to any ideas, and yes, will keep the original. :cool:

Take a good head on photo and send to me original size, and I'll do it. I'm doing about 4 per month (top boxes, award cards or belly glasses) at the moment so it might take a week or two. I can print it but, just out of interest, why can't you print in on your normal printer? I would suggest 3mm acrylic but can use thicker if you want to.

Before Coppin gets stuck in, see if this remastered scan will do. I've kept the PSD file in case it needs more work.
