The screenshot shows what the Image to gcode window looks like (and the options it offers) along with the appearance of the generated g-code. To regenerate the file with different options, simply hit ctrl-r. The last parameters you used in image-to-gcode are remembered in the file ~/.image2gcoderc.
Image-to-gcode requires the numarray and PIL packages. On Ubuntu systems, they may be installed with the following command:
sudo apt-get install python2.4-imaging-tk python2.4-imaging \ python2.4-numarray
Depending on the image size and the settings chosen, it may take from 15
seconds to several minutes to generate the g-code, which is then loaded in
