I don’t know how much you are looking to spend but with 3 $ signs PhotoVcarve stand alone app is only $149 and it provides excellent results then you would also be able to do future projects. Attached are some of my novice results.

+1 on what scotttarnor said :lol: :lol:


@scotttarnor were they all done using the same process & settings or is this some experimenting? Looks like you have some mixed results there which is why I am asking, I've actually had the software for a few years but never really used it, it's on my list of things to try at some point but still not there yet :lol: :lol: :lol:

Martin, I am not near my computer right now but I believe most of the PhotoVcarve settings were the same, the biggest factor is the quality of the picture you have to work with. I wish I had the time and or money to edit/ manipulate the photos to a really good gray scale image.
To have the time to actually learn gimp because it’s free would help immensely.
Later I will look up the old files and see what the settings were.

I worked as a signmaker doing cad cut vinyl & large format print for about 12 years so know all about image quality :lol: :lol: Also lucky enough to have & be able to use software for editing.
I do know that not all photos are suitable even if the quality is OK from things I have read in the past, for good results things like contrast have to be right.
Finishing is also something that is very important. Like I said I bought the stand-alone software from Vectric years ago & it's not even installed on the computer I am using now. :lol: :lol:
