Stevie Wonder – Characters

Released:  1987
Label:  Motown/MCA Records


Front cover:  For whatever reason, the scanner wasn’t a fan of this so it took a lot of work getting the color balance right.  Maybe it’s the raise portions?  Not sure but this took about a half an hour to get right.  Very strange…

Gatefold 1 & 2:   Same thing.  They both took some time.  No raised parts here so not sure what the big deal was to my scanner.  Still, they both look just as they do in front of me now.

Back cover:  The same issues persisted here too.  All good though.  Just re-colored at the scan stage for all of these and they came out great.

Sleeve-front:  These had some mild speckling on them for some reason but total color replacement at its largest size took care of it.  

Sleeve-back:  Also, scanner didn’t like the real color so had to rebalance it at the scan stage to fix.  It looks just like it does in front of me now.  It will open up larger if you right-click on it and open it in a new tab/window.

Labels:  Labels were trouble too.  Scanner didn’t know what to do with them.  Now, they look as they do in front of me thanks to re-coloring at the scan stage.
