General Discussion / .png files with no background
« Last post by ericam on June 04, 2020, 09:39:18 PM »
hi! i'm new to this software, but super excited to try it.

i've been trying to upload .png files so that the background isn't recognized by the colour selector but it still seems to be marking it as white and filling in so much space of the pattern with an unnecessary colour. is there a way for this to be updated/regulated?

A4 is 210 by 297 mm. In inches, it is 8,3 by 11.7. In step two, you select the size which is closest to these values  :D

I'm sure I'm being a bit dim, but I can't work out the size of pattern bit. I'd like to cross-stitch a picture that would be about A4 on 14 count Aida - what size would that be?

Sans plus d'informations, il est très difficile de vous aider avec ce problème.

The detail of the pattern is limited by the number of stitches. Having a much more detailed image will therefore not result in a more detailed pattern. My recommendation would be to have at least two times as many pixels in width and height as you will have stitches. For example if your resulting pattern will be 500 x 400 stitches (which is already pretty large :D) the minimum image size would be 1000 x 800 pixels. For modern camera's that is still a low-resolution image  ;D

Higher resolution images won't hurt though, it will only take a few seconds more in the upload process.

Hello. Is there a recommended image size to use? I tried playing with a picture and the pattern would of needed to be huge to have nice detail. (My apologies, I am not a natural with technology...) Thanks.

I had an issue like this with my last project but it didn't come out too bad in the end. In the photo, the dog I was stitching had black on his tongue and in the shading but when I stitched it, the black parts were a dark blue. A bit strange but it came out OK.

So, I have been doing some poking around of my own.  Using the talents of my daughters who are well versed in photoshop we started looking at the individual pixel color codes and comparing them to an online RBG to DMC color converter.  While the pic2pat image on the screen looks a lot brighter, the color codes (RBG) from the that image were generating the same dark DMC colors that the pic2pat pattern called for.  So then I decided to be brave and mess with the brightness and contrast. After many attempts and multiple color comparisons I think I have finally generated an image that I am satisfied with.

Thank you, Thank you,Thank you,Thank you,Thank you,Thank you,

You have created an amazing program and I am very happy that you are willing to share your talent and time with the world!!
