An important prerequisite in scroll saw portrait making is the quality of the original. The sharpness and good lighting makes it easy for the computer to make the conversion. In past I received poorly lighted and unfocused picture, thinking that I can improve it with image manipulation, only to get the “does not look like” comment from the customer. Lesson learned. We became more strict with picture quality before accepting any the order.

Good job.

I have started looking into doing the portraits. I am trying to learn to use GIMP. Just started a couple of days ago so got a long way to go. Keep up the good werk.
