Is there a way to override the automatic ratio size?

Would be nice if X/Y could be unlinked, don't believe that is an option.

Search for some software called halftoner. You can change pretty much anything, including cute ng lines, circular lines, wavy lines, dots and output as dxf.
Works great.

I think I have found a way to try and make the ratio for X/Y to unlink. Using PhotoCarve, you can't. However, I changed the ratio of the picture I wanted by first using Photoshop to the dimension I wanted, then loaded it into Photocarve.. Magic!!

I hate it when (THINGS) are smarter than me!

Sure, can always use another program to rescale, would be nice to do it on the fly within the program.
