Hi can anyone please tell me where I am going wrong,
i started out being able to get a good quality photo for
engraving as you can see on the picture on the right
but I think ive altered something as now the small pixels
have changed & the quality is terrible,TIA
Looks like you have converted the bitmap to monochrome (black and white) with a very low (48 dpi) resolution.Maybe that was intentional but no matter what, it will look awful on screen.Don't know what it takes to use a bitmap for laser engraving but I suspect that the resolution has to be a lot higher.Maybe you could use another conversion method to get a better halftone representation?There are seven different options when changing bitmap to black and white (Bitmaps > Mode > Black and White): Line art, Ordered, Jarvis, Stucki, Floyd-Steinberg, Halftone and Cardinality-Distribution.
