New in Version 5, 3D Gray
3D Gray takes a PNG file with a transparent background and creates a 3D like engraving. How it works is anyplace that is tranparent is changed to balck, the hightest engraving value. Any place that is not transparent is dithered using the selected dithering algorithem. You can select the gray level for the dithered image. Selecting a low number will make it look like the image is a raised cutout. Selecting a hight number will make it look like an engraved image. Selecting a min range number like 100 will give a 3D like apperance to the output. To do 3D Gray, Check the 3D Gray Box an select a dithering method.

New in Version 4, Smart Contrast
We added Colby Sketch to improve the contrast of images that were going to be etched into wood. Version 4 added a new concept, Smart Contrast. What smart contrast does is it looks at the area around a point in the image and determines how much contrast should be applied. You can select the contrast level and how wide an area is looked at. The results have been spectacular. To make this feature easy to use you can toggle between an easy to use radio button interface and a more advanced slider interface.


Examples of various contrast settings:

Laser Engraving Conversion Effects

We feel that the most important thing in a Laser Engraving software package is the conversion effects engine. It is not an easy task to convert an image to a series of black and white pixels. The sketch software uses a proprietary method for creating a effect that shows edges but still retains dark areas. The Flo S is a industry standard for dithering while the Colby method was developed to enhance the contrast of laser engraved images. We do not need to argue which is the best approach we make it easy for you to try all three.

  Sketch Effect
Sketch will attempt to look at edges and create a solid sketch of the image. This is very helpful because it is not only artistic, but lower cost lasers that do not control their power and position as well still can do a nice rendering on most materials. laser engraving software
 Floyd-Steinberg Dithering
Floyd-Steinberg is a dithering algorithm. Dithering is converting a grayscale image to black and white no gray, such that the density of black dots in the new image approximates the average grey level in the original.

If you look at a close up of this method you can see how smooth the output is. The problem is that fine details are lost.

 Colby Dithering Effect
The Colby dithering algorithm was developed for this product by the author, Ken Colby. Like Floyd-Steinberg it tries to make the density of black dots in the new image approximate the average grey level in the original. Unlike Floyd-Steinberg it considers the original image and tries to arrange the dots so that they tend to appear near the darker areas. This creates a image with higher contrast but it is less smooth then the Floyd-Steinberg. It should always be used if you are outputting landscapes or products but with people it is personal choice.

 Colby-Sketch Effect
This method, that works well with wood, increases the contrast of the engraved image buy dithering and also considering the edges of the photo. laser engraving software laser engraving software
 Display Modes
The display modes help you see how the output image will look when engraved. These setting do not affect the output only how it is shown on the screen. The software offers 4 display modes:

Dots Mode
This mode shows the actual pixel of the image that is closest to the display pixel. The problem is that the output pixels do not match the display pixels so you get what looks like a mess of dots.

You can zoom in on the image and the dots will make more sense.

Gray Mode
With Gray mode the display pixel is the sum of the nearby output pixels. This makes the image look closer to the final output image.

Photo Mode
This is the same a gray mode but the white background is replaced with an image. You can select your background image in the settings area.

Photo Mode Inverted
This inverts the gray mode and is used to show how something might look on a dark background like granite. To use this make sure you pick a dark background photo.

Of course if you are going to output a photo on a dark substance you should use one with a dark background. See the Support section on how to use Green Screen Wizard to do this.

Laser Photo Wizard Pro Features

The Pro version has the all the features of the Full system including 3 conversion systems, overlays and simple text but adds the Editor, Special Effects and Extensive Text and Image control.

 Compare Images
With only a simple file open it is difficult to find a photo to process. Many photographers used a separate program to review the images and then used the Wizard to process the selected image. This will no longer be necessary with the Compare Image feature. This feature will create large thumbnail images for you to look at. You can drag any image to one of 4 review windows so that you can compare even larger images. You can double click on the thumbnail or the image in the compare window and it will be loaded as the image to process. This features takes a few minutes to create the thumbnails but it is worth the wait. laser engraving software

 Airbrush Editor
The Pro Studio Version of Laser Photo Wizard has a custom version of Green Screen Wizards Airbrush Editor that makes it easy to edit black and white photos. It works best cleaning up sketch mode photos. The dithered photos are difficult to edit because the pattern of dots is easily disturbed. You can use the copy mode for these images and you can clear a background for text for dithered images.

 Special Effects

Skin Smoothing
In Green Screen Wizard Skin Smoothing helps to remove blemishes and wrinkels and give the skin a glow. What skin smoothing adds in the Laser Photo Wizard is the ability to apply white makeup that makes faces lighter for a more pleasant output.

Adding Frames
The Laser Photo Wizard has an powerful framing system. It lets you apply an inner frame and an outer frame. If the outer frame is white then it can make the image look like it is floating. You can choose Square , Oval, Heart or Jagged Frames. The frame can be solid or you can load an image. The frames are added before the effect so that they will be dithered or sketched depending on the effect selected.

In version 4 you can now use the framing system to vector cut the output. This makes it very easy to create plaques on thin materials.
