    Take the pictures in the highest-possible resolution/size for your camera - that's a start. :)

    I'll check 'em when I get home because I'm using a sub-standard monitor here at werk. :(

    What type of camera are you using?

    When shooting:

    If you have the option, don't shoot with flash when shooting through glass. Get closer to the glass to limit reflections or use a polarizer. Try to avoid composing the subject in the center of the frame. Try to place the subject one third of the way from the top/bottom/sides.

    When processing:

    The images seem a bit soft. I'd try a bit of Unsharp Mask if you have Photoshop or something like it. I'd likely also bump the contrast and saturation as glass tends to suck the color and contrast out of pictures.

    HTH,

    Jon

    I am neither dumb, nor lazy.

    I just don't know how to do anything but point and shoot. :D

    I'll tell you what. Send me a full size image that you'd like 'fixed', and I'll make a step-by-step tutorial showing what I did and why.

    What software do you have for image editing?
