Latest mini gerbil print

Here is a print dithered in PaintShop Pro using a script from Sean Murray that I found on the Facebook page That Dude With A Lazer at https://www.facebook.com/groups/250911899106529/.  PaintShop Pro is on sale for 75.00 US and Sean's script is free if you join That Dude With A Lazer.  I have found that this software does a great job with dithered images and I have been able to make great burns of pictures that I have not been able to work with until now.  The print was burned with Lightburn using the pass thru option in cuts - you would not get the same quality without pass thru because Lightburn would re-process the image and change the result.

i used this script the other month and got bad results.

Using passthrough the image was terrible but as soon as i switched it to grey scale its looked alot better but i got some abnormalities on the image.

this one same focal point same speed etc but pass through enabled in LB

this one exact same image processed with the same script but set to grey scale:

makes no sense but this is how my laser is engraving these images and i cannot find a solution.

Yes it can take a bit of experimentation to get some pictures right. Sometimes the original contains noise which you can't see until you engraved it.  I suggest to process it with paint.net and apply s ome autocorrect in levels. This reminds me to write a second blog about calibration with a standard picture so you know that the set up works and you have a proper reference point. Keeps updated on your progress and publish your picture so I can replicate the process and see if it is indeed the picture or something else.
