Black photo when loading

Post by ggbusmgr »

I get a black photo when I load into PVC. If I check make transparent and click in a corner it will make white and the image stays black. I tried loading the same photo as a jpg and tif. Same thing happened. I put the program on my new laptop and the same photo show fine when loading. Any ideas on what may be causing the black photo on my other laptop.

Also, what post processor are people using with a Shapeoko 3 and Carbide Motion 4. Tried using GBRL inches for the gcode. When loaded into CM 4 the dimensionn of 5" x 8" is show as 5mm x 8mm for the machining size in CM 4.

Any help is appreciated.
