Photo Engraving Software Recommendations?

Post by Stephen Eaton » Mon Dec 05, 2016 8:39 pm

Any recommendations for photo engraving software, in particular Ive been looking at 1-touch-Photo as it seems pretty simple to use.

Never used it myself but http://www.photograv.com/aspnet2/ gets mentioned a lot

I believe a lot of folk use manual tweaks in Photoshop too, various vids on youtube

This is a Photoshop script that does pretty much what Photograv does. I believe it will work with PS Elements too? Gene

Gene,

Thanks for the link. I looked at PhotoGrav, but at $400 a copy, its beyond my budget. I've got PhotoShop on the big computer, along with Nikon Raw, etc. from when I got my first digital camera.
