Try uploading them to a free image hosting site like Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket

Hope that helps, I want to see what you've got going on there!

I have access to one of those at school, I was always told that I couldn't engrave anything metal with it though. Even if I was only etching paint on the surface

Different lasers affect different materials. Find out what type of laser it is and I could probably come up with some settings to at least blast annodizing of aluminum. We make lasers where I work and I am a service tech for them.

To the OP, what brand laser are you using?
