Photo engraving help and tips

Hi I’m looking for advice. I’ve been playing around with picture engraving on to wood using photograv software then putting it into lightburn.
Has anyone used just lightburn, if so what processes have worked for you and do you have any tips to help me to get it to work.
Thank you

Something like these two examples:

To me it looks like the engraving is not dark enough.

Here are a Couple links to a get the file if you don’t have one . Keep in mind that you need to tune the card by selecting what the file states and syncing with Lightburn
