I old maps/documents and I’ve scoured the internet to collect a hard-drive full of old scans. Most files take a bit of work to prepare, but so far I’m really happy with the outcome. (The GUI was really unhappy trying to process the street scene and it took forever to get it loaded, but finally got it to go ) The bamboo makes for some crisp lines, but it doesn’t engrave evenly. Going to have to try this on some nice PG hardwood.
The street scene was 100 P/850 S/340 LPI FS Greyscale 0 min/100max. It was just a tad darker than I wanted and would likley do it at full speed next time. It just boggles my mind that you can read some of the tiny lettering on the store fronts.
The SF label lost some detail and is defiantly a little dark in places. It was at 100/640/340 FS Greyscale 0 min/100max. The original scan was really muddy and needed lots of adjusting and clean up. (Still needs a little cleaning in areas.) Of course, leaving all the discoloration etc. might have made for a cool effect as well.
