How to get proper settings for photos

trying to burn a photo but it always comes out dark

what kind of machine

I have a Yora 6550

15 watt laser

At 15W, I’m assuming you have a diode laser.

My first question is have you done any dot tests to see what your best speed and power are for doing photo engraving. If not, Russ has a few good videos on photo engraving and how to get you proper settings for it. He’s using a CO2, but I would expect what you are trying to achieve is the same. Take a look through his videos and go through them. I know in one of the photo engraving videos, if you send him a message in the comments, he’ll send you his instruction sheet on the process as well as a dxf file for the tests.
