Image guidelines from litho:
The first thing you need to do is to choose a photo/picture that would be appropriate for 3D printing. Not all photos will look good when 3D printed, so you must think of the following things when choosing the right picture :
I have chosen three pictures as a demonstration. The first one is a simple picture , I think it's a great image because of the contrast of colours in it. The other two pictures are from Windows "Sample Pictures" directory, a Koala and a Lighthouse which will serve to show how a badly chosen picture might turn up. These would be a good test to show how a bad image would appear since all the varying grey in the Koala's fur will cause a lot of spikes in the STL and the print will look bad due to all those small details which most FDM printers will have trouble with (due to oozing, retractions, extrusion width, etc..). As for the Lighthouse, it has a lot of dark rocks that may be very hard to print and there's not a lot of contract between the lighthouse and the sky.

How do you choose a suitable picture for Lithophane?
Remember not all pictures are meant for 3D printing. Take care to choose a picture:
1. The 3D printed photo will basically appear in shades of grey, so if there is an important detail that requires colour, the image may not be a good fit.
2. It is best to choose a picture with a fairly high contrast ratio.
3. Choose an image that doesn’t have a lot of details. Because the details might not look as good as a lithograph, so a simple image with a uniform background would be an ideal fit.
