PhotoGraV simulates more than 20 engraving materials including: cherry
and walnut wood; clear and black-painted acrylic; black laser brass and
anodized aluminum; a variety of generic leather materials; and many
plastics with either a white or black core and with a variety of caps
including brushed gold and most solid colors.
PhotoGraV's processing functions
have been tuned and optimized for each of these materials and the
appropriate optimized parameters are automatically loaded whenever a new
material is selected.
compensates for the engraving peculiarities of each material in the process
of creating the "engraver-ready" processed image. For example,
photos to be engraved on clear acrylic are automatically mirror-imaged and produced at a "negative" polarity.
Of course, you can override these automatic features at any time to produce
special effects if so desired.
PhotoGraV is very easy to use;
(1.) Scan image as greyscale, (2.) Select the image in PhotoGraV,
(3.) Choose the material type you will be engraving, (4.) Select the Auto
Processing button. The next thing you see on your computer monitor is a
simulation of what the image will look like when it is actually engraved on the material you have chosen.
