    I was starting to think the same thing about doing both.
    Here is an individual block positioned like I usually do for my web store.
    The 1st one (photo) looks more like it would in daylight setting. Colors are accurate.

    The 2nd one (scan) looks how it would if you hold it directly under a bright light.

    no, no,'no. I can use it to fuel my wood burning oven, and I'll break down and pay the shipping.

    I would assume that the lens and the software in your camera are better than in the scanner, but the scanner resolution looks decent enough for web pics. So, you could just import the scanned jpgs into a photo software, boost the contrast and saturation a little bit, and get the best of both. Of course, you still get only 2 dimensions that way.

    Given the variation in the calibration from computer to computer and monitor to monitor what you post is pretty much irrelevant to what people will actually see, color wise. Keep posting anyway.

    True. Nevertheless, I bet the scanner pics look worse on most, if not all monitors.

    I really like the scanned pictures. The color is going to change when it is finished anyway, and like Spike said, monitor calibrations are different all over. You could also do what Stefan said and adjust some sliders in any number of free photo editing software and get the color to better reflect how it looks.

    Or just include both when you can. I mean, it's only twice the work.

    I would be grabbing one of these if I hadn't just gotten some like this last week.

    Mango Blocks Video

    I cleaned up some of the Mango and posted some for sale at BF because I was requested to do so by a regular customer.
    First I posted a couple photos and they just didn't look near as nice as in real life.




    Then I tried making a video. That showed the blocks a lot better.
