Hello all and Happy Holidays,
I could really use some assistance on this one as I am pulling my hair out and likely missing something obvious. Up until now I have done most of my photo engraves from files out of photoshop and never really brought anything into illustrator.
Well now I am trying to bring this file into illustrator and cut out around it and do a photo engrave of this dog (Rowan who had to be put to sleep this year) and all of my photo engraves are turning out dark with no real photo texture.
I have attached a zip file of all of the files I am working with and below are the settings I have on the glowforge currently but have tried others.
Grayscale: Vary Power
This is all on 1/8 Baltic Birch (non proof grade), I have tried with and without masking as well.
I feel like I have read so many photo engrave threads and have tried things people have recommended and keep getting the same/similar results.
Any help/recommendations would be greatly appreciated at this point.
