WHY WE CAN'T ACCEPT PIXELS?
PIXEL files do not contain a mathematical equation for a laser engraver to follow. No matter how simple the logo is, we can not create a laser engraving with a PIXEL file. PIXEL files are made of tiny boxes of color. Zooming in on a photo of a face you will see hundreds of colors ranging from black, orange, red, white, pink, yellow, brown... et-cetera. Each one of these tiny boxes of color is a single PIXEL. A Photoshop, .PSD, .JPG, file of a logo is the same as a photo of a face. If you zoom in the image will be made of tiny colorful boxes or PIXELS.
