Title: Printing lenticular images

Abstract: A method for printing images on a recording material by way of at least two multimode laser beams created by emitting apertures of at least two multimode lasers includes the steps of: forming with each of said multimode lasers a spot having a long dimension and a short dimension with each of the multimode laser beams such that the long dimension of each of the spots corresponds to a long dimension of a respective emitting aperture of each of the multimode lasers; and scanning the spots created by the multimode laser beams across the recording material such that (i) the long dimension of each of the spots is parallel to scan direction, and (ii) so as to create a series of spaced apart swaths, each of which has a plurality of image lines, the spacings between the image lines of a swath being different from spacing between two adjacent swaths.
