photo vcarve settings

Postby Two Board Brothers » Thu Dec 01, 2016 9:33 pm

Is there a setting that will cut the background deeper to enhance the photo, making it stand out more?

Contrast, to a degree.

I find it better to manipulate the photo with editing software first to get the results you want, but maybe someone will chime in with a tip.

I use Paint.Net. http://www.getpaint.net/index.html

It is similar to and much more powerful than the Windows Paint Program and there are tutorials available.

Thanks, Mike. I tried to download it, but my computer does not have the specifications for it.

I use photoimpact 10, older program but has alot of bells and whistles and easy to use.

I think there is a "gimp" that is free and alot of people use.
