ImagR free or a fee?

Hi all , I’m kind of disappointed, but it’s funny. I haven’t been in the laser world for a while—life is definitely to blame. :face_exhaling: I was planning on making a comeback this summer, but I see ImagR has limited uploads now. Maybe it’s always been that way, and I just never noticed?

So, I figured I’d come here and find out. I know it’s only $15, but life can be rough at times. If that’s the case, is there an alternative to ImagR, or should I just try to manage and bite the bullet?

LightBurn provides tools for prep’ing images for laser production. I would suggest reviewing the following to see if you can reproduce the image quality desired using these options, before investing in another software that does the same.

And this for the different Image Modes for production.

I used ImagR a few times, but how Lightburn has increased the available tools for image manipulation, I don’t use it at all.

It’s really a drag to have to go to the site to change the size of something a few mm, going through all the menus…

I think you’ll find, for most things, Lightburn will work as well, with a little experience.

Yeah, I figured LightBurn had an update, but my license expired, and I haven’t had the chance to renew it. Hopefully, I can get a new one in July. I updated it once and it went fine, but then I updated it again and it threw a fit and made me revert (and it’s on two different laptops!).
