)-- Photo engraving is considered the master piece of laser engraving. But with the perfect laser software it is no big deal. But of course there are some tricks, which are very supportive and these are listed here.
Selection of images and laser parameters
The first step to a good result is the choice of the right picture. Engravers should make sure to pick a perfect photo, because the resolution and contrast of the image have an impact on the result.
A golden rule for photo engravers is “less is more!” For top engraved photos it is vital to select the correct speed, adjust power settings and lenses.
In order to get good results out of the laser photo engraving processes the right raster algorithm have to be picked in the Trotec JobControl X. Which one to choose depends on the picture and the material used. The trick here is to get the right algorithm.
Picture processing tools
To make pictures more fitting for a laser engraving process it may be required to adjust it. Either changing the contrast or making the image clearer is needed, but the majority of graphic software on the market come with those functions, so there won't be any problems with that.
