General Discussion / Re: Request for input on Pic2Pat improvements

In recent weeks, six new languages have been added to Pic2Pat. Users can now convert pictures and generate PDF files in simplified and traditional Chinese, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese and Korean. This adds an extra 1.5 billion people who can use Pic2Pat in their native language.

Happy Stitching!

General Discussion / Re: Wasn't Pic2Pat a bit more robust earlier?

It should be just as stable as before. Which device are you using to generate the pattern (Android, iPhone, Windows, etc) and what is your interface language?

General Discussion / Wasn't Pic2Pat a bit more robust earlier?
« Last post by Analogue on November 11, 2019, 07:55:58 PM »
Am I dreaming, or wasn't Pic2Pat more robust before? Last year, I created a Pic2Pat file (which see - English Toy Spaniel in attachment) which I am unable to replicate today. The sole options are 14 sts per cm(?) in approximately 1" size image. I am unable to, or there lacks an option to increaste stitches per inch nor for color. Was it not Pic2Pat that created that file? I could be mistaken, but I am absolutely certain P2P used to offer more options & finer definition in file creations.

This program is a gold mine- IF it is able to create finer definition images. Imagine the possibilities in creating any sort of cross stitch or tapestry design!

The number of supported colors is now increased from 75 to 150 per chart. This was a much requested feature for large patterns with much color details.

Hi Victoria,

The last printed page contains a drawing of squares with numbers. These are the page numbers and how you should glue them together.

Best regards,

Hi folks need some help. I've just printed off my new pattern but I can't work out do I follow it by page numbers or by the numbers on the actual pattern. I have 1 in the bottom left corner going up the left hand column and a 1 in the top left corner running right across the top.

The PDF generator now adds an extra page to the output with a drawing explaining how multiple pages should be glued together. Sometimes users found it difficult to find the right page order.

The new PDF generator does not only increase processing speed and reduce the file size of the resulting pattern in the PDF file, it also allows for larger patterns to be processed efficiently.

I am therefore pleased to announce that I have increased the maximum pattern size to 52 inches or 130 cm, which is more than 920 stitches wide when using 18 stitches per inch. The resulting PDF file is less than a megabyte in size, generated in a comfortable 7 seconds and using the Pic2Pat's own proprietary symbol set with easily distinguishable fully scaleable cross-stitch symbols. I am confident this result is currently unmatched in the industry.

But to quote Churchill in 1942, "This is not the end, it is not even the beginning of the end, it is the end of the beginning"

From this point on, Pic2Pat will be subject to frequent rolling updates to add functionality and increase the user experience. So keep a close watch on the product and this forum and if you have any suggestions for the development road-map, don't hesitate to share them here!

Happy Stitching!

The faster PDF generator is on-line now. If you experience problems with the new smaller PDF files, please let me know in this dedicated topic.

The new PDF files generate about five times faster, are ten times smaller and patterns should be easier to copy to progress tracking software because you can now click-copy-paste the pattern from your PDF reader to another application.

Happy Stitching!

General Discussion / First phase new PDF generator on-line
« Last post by lammert on October 15, 2019, 10:48:59 PM »
In the coming period the software running the Pic2Pat website will be replaced. To be sure this upgrade process doesn't break anything, the upgrade will be performed in small steps, where each step is carefully monitored.

As a first phase I replaced the PDF generator with a new version a few minutes ago. This PDF generator has no added functionality yet, but PDF generation is on average 5 times faster and the resulting PDF should be more than ten times smaller compared with the previous version. If you encounter any problems with the generated PDF files, please respond in this thread or send an email to the email address mentioned in the header of each page of the PDF file.

Happy Stitching!
