You should be able to raster scan a bitmap.

Often called etching.

I don't know your machine so I don't know if it supports this option.

I am starting to get 8bit engraving working on my laser cutter but for metal you are definately lost if you don't have 100W (or more) power or a laser dedicated to work with metals.
Ruby lasers are great here on a hobby level.
Some medical lasers also use YAG systems, they can work on metals too depending on their wavelength.
With the limits of your controller you might need external programs to prepare a rastered bitmat of the image for the engraving.

Repeating the same does not help at all.
We can't help while you only run in circles ;)

You won't be able to directly etch on metal, unless its a metal cutting class laser. You CAN get a special spray that allows you to put enamel on the metal.

You 130W ND-Yag?
With 130W you should not have any problems marking metal.
How are you driving the laser?
Is the focus set correctly?
Is the flsh tube or the LED's still ok? they don't last long in a ND yag system...
