    I want to laser engrave a high res photo of animals on to the backs of cell phone cases. The backs are composed of cherry wood. The space on the cherry would I have to work with is about 2 x 3 inches. Any suggestions as to how to get a quality engraving? 30 watt epilog laser engraver. Corel Draw. I am attaching photos of a few tests. Thanks for any advice. I get my photos from Shutterstock and Depositphotos.

    How to Engrave Picture on Wood

    I am trying to engrave high resolution photos of dogs, cats, etc. on cherry wood. The space is about 2x2.5 inches. The laser is a 40w epilog. I cannot seem to get the the laser image to "pop" or standout. It seems too dark or too light. Corel Draw X8 is being used. For example, I am taking a photo from Shutterstock and trying to use laser engraving to transfer the image to a piece of cherry wood 2 mm thick. Any suggestions will be appreciated!
