This may be an obvious question, but why is it that bitmaps can only be engraved, i.e. why can’t you cut with a bitmap? It seems obvious that you couldn’t but yet you can cut a “trace” image using the GF camera by clicking outside the image and it then ends up “cutting via a bitmap”. Was this just a design decision by GF to only allow cutting from a bitmap via the trace function on the camera and not from user uploaded bitmaps?
I ask because when I want to cut out a bitmap, I seem to have 2 options: a.) Trace it to a vector in either Inkscape or AI, or b.) print the thing out, put it in the bed, use the trace function and voila. The latter seems really low tech and hokey but often times is faster, but just seems wierd to have to do that.
