Hello All,
Kind of a newbie here so be gentle. My question is how do you control the background of an image in Photograv? I clipped a portion of a picture of just one person from a larger group and saved it off to a new file. The results after processing in photograve were a gray shaded background instead of white or transparent. I am going to marble and would like to avoid the background being lasered.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

If you do not want the background to engrave it must be black before sending to Photograve

Robert I've sent you a pm. Backgrounds are a little bit of a nuisance when it comes to working with dark stone. It needs to be removed completely for the best contrasts. Plus it needs to be a negative. A negative picture needs to be on a black background in order to engrave a positive. If you search through the forum for granite and marble you will find a wealth of information relating to just that subject
