new tools...photo help

>I have been thinking about making some special tools for quite some time. I finally started making them. I purchased a highly figured maple board which I cut up for handles....I want them to be a matching set. One tool resembles a detail gouge, but instead of a flute, I ground the top basically flat, and used a long side grind like a detail gouge. It will cut like a gouge, and shear scrape without digging in. I made it to touch-up coves, and finish inside goblets. Also made several sizes of captive ring tools. I want to post some photos,especially cutting edges, but I'm not that familiar with my digital camera. Could someone give me a few tips on the best settings to use....It's a canon power shot A75. Thanks, Keith
