    I want to use this picture to engrave on my Black Macbook:

    http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/0a/The_Great_Wave_off_Kanagawa.jpg

    I go to the EtchAMac website and browse to the picture. It then says uploading but when it gets to 100% nothing happens. Shouldn't I be able to resize it and the like? Am I doing something wrong?

    Here is a screenshot of it:

    How much would it cost to do this? Can I put two engravings on my Macbook?

    It recommends you do not upload color images, which you are doing, so maybe that is causing the problem?

    Is there any website that would make the picture black and white? I can't seem to find anything.

    I let it "upload" the black and white image for about 20 minutes and still nothing. What am I doing wrong? I can't figure it out!

    How would I be able to know if the image was too large?

    I tried it and the large image converted to black and white takes a few minutes to load but finally does....this is a smaller version (within the forums 1.14 size limit) that works too
