@Lotzaspotz A large software overhaul is underway and you can add your input to the request for comments topic if you want to.

@algonix There are no plans to release the source code. The only ones in my life who have achieved to convince me of something are my spouse and children  ;D
General Discussion / Request for input on Pic2Pat improvements
« Last post by lammert on October 13, 2019, 11:19:11 AM »
Hi Pic2Pat users,

Exactly ten years ago, the Pic2Pat website started as a small personal site to generate cross stitch patterns from pictures. Use of the site has grown exponentially from 16 visitors in the first month to a few thousand visitors per day now. A staggering 5,233,493 patterns (yes, that is more than five million) have been generated and the number is counting. This is all still done with primarily the same software as ten years ago.

A lot has changed in ten years. The original design of the site was targeted at novice internet users where a few clicks should be enough to generate a nice cross stitch pattern in downloadable PDF format. Mobile phones and apps emerged and the way people use website changed significantly. For this reason, I have planned a mayor overhaul of the Pic2Pat software to make it even more useful for everyone, while keeping its usage simple and the costs for the users entirely free.

The first step will be an upgrade of the PDF generator. The new generator will allow larger patterns, and more colors to be used in a pattern. It will also print the page layout and information about the floss brand, stiches per inch and number of stitches. These are the most often requested missing features.

The next steps depend on your input, and all input is welcome.

Do you prefer another user interface, more functionality in selecting colors, functionality to edit the input pictures, downloading the patterns in other formats or anything else?

Please mention it in the comments below and I will see what can be added to the new Pic2Pat software.

Happy stitching!

Hi Lammert,
I have solved the problem. I was using the wrong size as a template.
Thank you for your help.

Maybe I am doing something wrong as I read about a person who had 25 pages of a pattern.
That must mean it was quite a big pattern.
Mine is only 8 pages - at the largest size on your website.

Hello Lammert,
I will attach a copy of the photo that I want to use.
Probably 50cm width and height to correspond.
It definitely needs to be bigger than your largest size on the web site.
Thank you for your prompt reply.

The size of the pattern is limited by the available computer resources, but I have some room to increase the amount of stitches in both width and height. What pattern size do you need?

Best regards,

Are there any bigger sizes of graphs for the patterns please?
I have a photograph that I want to use as a cross stitch pattern and the sizes your program uses are too small.

Thank you
Sharyn :)

Same question. My  pattern consists of 4 pages. 1 and 2 are full pages. 3 and 4 are only about 12 or 13 lines. The orientation is landscape. I have no idea how to arrange the pages or where to start. Thanks.

Why does the downloaded photograph for conversion to a cross stitch pattern always orientate the top of the picture to the right no matter which way up the original picture is. How can I get the cross stitch pattern to be the right way up too?

I have uploaded a bright photo and the pattern has turned out far too dull. Is there any way to brighten the pattern? Kind regards
