General Discussion / Re: Background removal?

The current transformation of images is a two step process. The first step removes the alpha channel, and the second step matches the pixel colors to available thread colors. Using the alpha channel for background transparency is an interesting idea. I didn't implement it because I thought most users wouldn't be aware of transparent backgrounds, but I'll look into a way to make this usable for the advanced users.

The symbols are already mapped to Unicode characters.

Hi - I've never used picture 2 pattern... I've uploaded an image and created my pattern file. I now have 4 sheets of symbols (all good so far) but... where/how do I start and how do the sheets fit together? Sorry for being dim. I'm used to seeing a chart with vertical/horizontal arrow taking me to the middle of the pattern (I'm a real beginner!!).

Do they just butt up to each other??

Thanks in advance

I'm trying to upload a pattern that I can edit in another program, and I'm having trouble getting around the background generation that p2p uses.

If I set the transparency on the background to completely transparent, you convert it to white, which is fine for most cases.

So I changed the background to be a color that doesn't exist anywhere else in my pattern, but the pattern generation still blends in the "bad" background color, introducing new colors that aren't part of the color palette at all along the edge of the subject.(The edges on my image don't have transparency)

Would it be possible to have an 'Advanced' option to be able to choose what the background color is used on the output pattern for the transparent pixels that you replace with white?

Or maybe be able to choose to use a distinct, special symbol for the background that isn't used anywhere else in the pattern?

Using Unicode characters for your mapping in addition to ASCII.

The black and white patterns still use a white background. But in the past it was an image while it is now printed as a special text font. It could be your printer uses more ink to print fonts than to print drawings.

One way to save ink is to use the Pattern Keeper app https://patternkeeper.app/ Instead of printing the pattern, you load the PDF in the app and use the app to keep track of your stitching efforts.

I have used your program a couple of times and I like it very much.
Q: although I select ‘black and white’ to print out the pattern, I empty a whole cartridge by the time I finish...I think because of the grey background in the squares.
Is there any possibility to make the patterns just with black symbols on a white background? I think it was always like that but it’s changed.
I don’t know if I make myself clear on this, haha! It’s hard to explain writing it.

Thank you! I found it, it was very easy. I should have looked better in the first place :) . It works a lot easier now!
