Does anyone printing or lasing err lasering… using a laser use higher then the default 400 acceleration for X and Y?

In my adventures to make laser engraving a sustainable side business for me I am wanting to do images (photos) on wood I have come across people using extremely high acceleration settings like 8000 or higher. I am pretty sure that is not possible on this machine using only Nema 17s. Plus I am running a 5′ axis which adds more moving mass then normal laser machines too.

I am just wondering if I am over thinking this too much and perhaps the issue lies in the contrast/brightness/gamma settings of the picture. I generally adjust the image so it look nice on the screen… The result is nothing like the screen usually.
