Getting the right image for the inspection task will get you the best results. Generally being able to clearly see all the defects is what you should optimize for. Here are some rules of thumb that will give you the best results.
<aside> 💡 Goal: The goal of imaging setup is to make the defects as clear as possible to a human looking at the images. If the object is not moving use “exposure” to increase brightness. If the object is in motion use “gain” (to reduce motion blur).

Reduce glare. Glare means that certain parts of the image are washed out. We can’t perform inspections in washed out areas. There are several ways to avoid glare.
Too much glare
Avoid pointing the camera directly at the object. Instead angle the camera at 15 degrees, so there is no direct reflection.
Photometric lighting mode. This cycles through the lights and digitally stitches the image together to reduce glare.
Toggle Auto White Balance to Off once you have set your desired image conditions.
