Hi DkyDro, I appreciate you taking the time to comment.

I'm not sure what you mean when you say it doesn't look correct? My photography isn't the best, but it's working as intended. The thicker more opaque sections are darker creating a gray scale image of the original picture.

I think you are confused, or I am misreading your suggestion to print them straight up. They are nearly flat, less than 1 mm thick in some sections and only a couple of mm thick at thickest parts. And the bottoms are flat. I don't see why you'd want to try and print them straight up with a base that's only a couple of mm thick. There'd be all kinds of adhesion an stability problems printing like that, at least on my printer.

no u didn't misread SkyDro. U have to print straight up and down. Also ur settings look off.
I print straight up and down on the Y axes @.1 with my thickest point @2.8 and the thinnest @.8, supports off and a brim @20
I add cut paint sticks or something i have printed with hot glue for supports after the litho its to 20-30 mm high, then just keep adding about every 40mm or so. Oh i am using a Ender 3
I use https://lithophanemaker.com/
Ur doing a great job, mine looked the same as urs when I first started, practice make perfect.
I hope this helps. I will add some pics so u can see :)

Hate to say it but doesn't look correct, also you should print your litho straight up not flat!!
