I’m sure I’ve missed this explanation somewhere in the forum, but I seem to be having an issue with exporting higher DPI PNG’s versus uploading SVG’s created in Inkscape. I’m hoping there’s a post somewhere that explains my issue better than I’m about to right now…
So I’ve been doing engravings (non-PG) on several different materials and have had some alignment issues like everyone else (finally stopped being lazy and started using jigs), but my issues lie with the designs. Is there a way to embed an image into an Inkscape SVG (either PNG or JPEG), resize the image to the appropriate size of the engraving (lets say 5" x 5"), ensure that the DPI is set to 600 or something high enough to produce a high quality engrave, save the Inkscape SVG, then upload it to the GFUI for processing (yet still maintain the 5" x 5" size)??
I enjoy using SVG files with the GFUI so that I can cut/score vectors around my bitmaps, but I can’t seem to get the higher DPI quality I need for the bitmaps when I upload the SVG’s to the GFUI. I also don’t like having to export the PNG from Inkscape at a higher DPI because I end up having to manually resize my image (and re-align) it within the GFUI.
I know I’m a noob so there’s probably a very simple fix/explanation that I’ve missed here on the forum, just hoping @Jules or @takitus (you guys know your stuff!) or someone can point me in the right direction.
Thanks in advance.
