AutoENHANCER is our software plugin for Adobe Photoshop, which simplifies photo enhancement for engraving purpouses. It is suitable for any type of engraving machine.
Take a look at the video presentation of AutoENHANCER:
AutoENHANCER ivolves these functions:
Automatic and manual adjustment of brightness, contrast, sharpness and noise with instant preview of engraving.
This function simplifies enhancement enormously, because you instantly see how change of brightness, contrast or sharpness will show on engraved picture. Moreover, there is a magic “Auto” button, which will automatically enhance all image features based on a cutting-edge genetic algorithm. The preview is available in two halftoning algorithms: Jarvis and Jarvis Coarse. The latter we specially developed for engraving into stone. It’s advantage is in better tonal reproduction, so that an image is not so “flat” as if using classic Jarvis.
Example of non-enhanced and automatically enhanced photo:

Dithering algorithms used to convert picture to black and white dots only
Jarvis – is a classical Jarvis dithering algorithm, which is available for example in Corel Photopaint, but it is not normally available in Photoshop.
Jarvis Coarse – is our dithering algorithm, which creates small clusters of white dots. This leads to better tonal reproduction on a stone.
