Best File format for etching photos

Just a quick question and the answer may save me hours of testing…when importing a photo to engrave is there a format that the LightBurn algorithm prefers ie…Png…Bmp…Jpg…Tiff

Nope - internally everything gets converted to an in-memory bitmap, so when sending to the laser there’s no difference between them at all. I’ll amend that by saying that JPG is lossy, and best for photographs, and PNG is lossless and best for things that have sharp edges, like text, cartoons, logos, etc.

Thank you…I have found that when using “pass through” bmp works better “pre dithered using paintshop Pro”
