We are thankful to Drs. Bajaj and Pushkar for their interest in our article and valuable comments. We agree that gross photographs should be taken in the earliest convenience. We feel it is better to take photographs in the pathology department using proper photographic setup. Gross photography 24 to 48 hours after fixation in formalin does not significantly alter the colour of the tissue. We agree, in case of large, elevated orbital or exenterated specimens it is almost impossible to focus both the scale and specimens. Our option is to take the photograph of the scale in the same magnification. Subsequently, one can cut the scale portion and add in the photograph.

We agree, digital photograph allows the investigaor to modify, delete, superimpose, and change the colour. However, we believe the advantage of digital photography are to convince oneself to switch to this new technology. A dishonest investigator, anyway, can modify even conventional photographs if he wishes. Digital photography, however, would make his/her job easier.
