So if I wanted to add Text to my Duck i.e. "Duck Crossing" would it cut out the letters and the duck at the same time?
A better example would be to cut out a decorative picture frame from one of the sample images they provide when you get i-Picture & then type a "saying" on it.
I assume it would cut out both the duck and the letters in the saying?
Unless you invert, which would leave the Black lines high.
Since you are using image software, you could make the lines differing shades of Gray. Black outline for the Duck, some of shade of Gray so letters would not be cut through. Lighter is better.
In the inlay section I posted a link to someone who wanted to copy a specific inlay. The thing about this one was it was glued in layers and cut so to expose different areas for something more interesting than a simple section of wood.
At least that is what I think that is where the discussion went.
Pretty simple to load a pic in image software, select an area then cut it, load a second image, select an area you want to copy, copy and paste in your first image.
Word processor software used to have the same functions to create flyers and such. I did a few in Wordperfect. They would even save as image files.
This might work for Word, everyone has MS word.
Converting to Image.
Some Photoshop tips
You can also use MS paint to make anything you want. Some people prefer it because you can do pixel by pixel coloration on an individual level.
It's included in every copy of windows and is very good for anything not requiring professional touches. Even those can be worked around.
If you go to the Oliver site and check the updated manual it has an image of a scanner or a phone being used as a source for the cutter. That suggests that very little manipulation should be required.
That makes me wonder how colors are seen in I-Picture, would deep reds skew black and yellows white?
Try throwing this image in I-Picture
I'll try a test of it tomorrow. See how colors are translated.
