  • A lit'l help from my friends...

    PLEASE! I am working on a box design for my SO's birthday and all is coming along nicely until I got to the artwork portion. I want to include artwork of our dog, D.O.Gee, (sssshhhh, he doesn't know he is a dog - lol!) Anyway, I have never created a fret pattern before and really struggling trying to get this into a usable pattern. I converted the color photo to grayscale, and cropped out all the background...but still cannot get the results I want....arggghh. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! I am not looking for a very complicated pattern, as it will be reduced down to fit into roughly 4" oval shaped plaque.

    Thanx again in advanced!!!

          After totally over-thinking this, I have decided to go ahead with the Micro Mark Saw. It will enable me to do everything I can imagine in my limited space and budget.
          I thank everyone for offering advice, and I look forward to receiving more. As soon as I get it and set it up, I will post pictures...

          Figured it out. The photos were Live and I had to edit them. As you can see, we were quite lucky they didn’t come crashing down in a storm. The last picture was a 2 trunk tree. My son already split a truck load today.

          Next project, the roofer next week. Yippee....

          Betty, I just tried a test, using a standard jpeg file. I clicked "upload attachments", then selected the photo I wanted to upload, then double clicked the photo, and it uploaded without a problem. Go figure!

          When I try to upload pictures, why is there an X next to upload attachments? I hate computers.
