Colors

The picture I had transformed into a cross stitch pattern has very pastel colors in most of it; however, the DMC floss colors that were sent back to me are significantly darker than the picture.  How can I get a chart with lighter colors? :(

The current process of color conversion uses fixed settings to match colors in a picture to floss colors. These settings were determined using a set with several types of pictures. But for some pictures, the color balance of brightness may not exactly match the original.

The common way people adjust settings like balance, brightness and saturation is with external photo edit programs. You can re-upload a picture multiple times with multiple settings and select the one which best matches your expectations.
