“I Thought I’d Reviewed That, But It Must Have Been Elsewhere. ”
This is a easy program that is EASY to use. This software doesn’t enable resizing or rotation of imported designs. It does allow mixing layouts into a single, but without the resizing capability, this isn’t that useful. One can control the arrangement of stitching which is important when you want (for example) facial features (eyes, mouth, nose) to stitch out in addition to the embroidered FACE.I desired it to have the ability to CREATE my own designs and it does permit importing a bit of clip art and converting into a layout. Just straightforward clip art works and you’ve got NO CONTROL of this kind of stitch it converts to and it’s not necessarily uniform. For instance, I snapped a simple car (side view). 1 wheel stitched out using a circular stitch around the middle of the wheel and another stitched outside outwards. For exploitation of an imported clip art, you CAN edit, change colors, eliminate colors, edit, resize, zoom in, etc. in an integrated drawing app. The created designs work well with five or five colors.Oh, another great feature is that you can download embroidery designs from other formats and CONVERT them to one YOUR machine recognizes. Overall, I’m delighted with this software.

“Awesome Software :-RRB- Attempt The Free Trial First”
First thing, even if you are considering purchasing this software visit Amazing Designs Web site and download the free trail. This trial is good for 30 days and is your complete item. This will really give you a good feel for this product. I tried it out and decided to order the product and I am very pleased that I did.Basic Steps :I have a Brother embroidery machine so I am using PES. The most important purpose I purchased it was to convert clip art in to PES. To me, this is a very simple friendly program. When starting out I suggest selecting an image with less than 6 colours until you get familiar with the program. It merely makes it simpler to learn.One thing to do before you begin… pick hoop size. You may also customize and insert your hoop size if it isnt listed in the drop down. You’ll locate this situated in the top beneath Tools. The sizes are in mm but if you look in the lower right of this box it rotates to inches. Next start the digitize wizard. This is situated on the right side of your display. When it opens you’ll have to choose your image. I have a embroidery file in my computer where I save pictures I want to digitize. Click Select Image if it’s saved on your personal computer or earn if you’re going to scan an image. After you open your picture you’ll be straight back to the digitize screen. Click the next button. You may now see your image. On this screen you can size you picture to any size you wish, so long as it will match your hoop :-RRB- For some reason you will have to enter numbers and then click on the picture to save the size. Click next button. Here you’ll see your picture with colors listed. The easiest method at this point is to click on Edit picture. This will open Microsoft paint. You can now use the paint can and alter any colors that you want. HINT: make the background any color that’s not in your image. Don’t use white. I will explain why in a future step. This is very important, it will help save you a lot of frustration! When you are finished changing or adding colours make sure that you click the save icon on peak of the paint app. This saves your job to the digitize program. Now you can shut the paint application. If your picture has many many colours you can also delete the little colors on the digitize page where the edit button is. The colors are listed with major colors first so you wont need to delete these. Should you delete the colors here you occasionally end up with colors being off. The colours won’t be gone until the next screen. I always just use the paint application. No matter which way you edit your own image always change the background from white. Within the next screen you’ll see tolerance value adapt to everything you would like. Keep in mind the lower the tolerance amount the more detail your picture is going to have. When you’re finished adjusting click upgrade outlines. You’ll notice a box which you can click if you want the wallpaper stitched. Under most situations you won’t need to click on this box. That is why you made your background a different color other than white. If your background is white and the box is not clicked subsequently no white will be stitched. This usually means that the white on your image will not stitch. I discovered this out the hard way and it was very frustrating. Now I simply make the background a nice vivid color that isnt in my picture and I don’t have any issues. Click next and finally click finish. The program will take a couple of minutes as it is focusing on converting your image into stitches.Finally we’re back to our hoop together with the picture. If you want now you can change the order that is stitch. I change it occasionally to deliver one of the colors to the very best. Also to place exactly the same colors together so that I dont need to re-thread my machine as much. You find this under resources click resequence. You can also change any color of thread which you can not like also. You do it side. This will take you color by color and if you want to change a colour just click on view at the top and colour on the drop down. The colours will appear on the bottom of your display. You simply click on the colour you want.At the cover of the display there is a purple 3d box, even if you click on this it is going to provide you with a picture of exactly what your project will look like stitched. It’s a rather good representation of the final product. The outline however, does show better in your final product than on the computer.Last step is to Save your final product. This is under file at the very top. Click document and follow the directions. I save everything to an embroidery file on my PC. Then I copy it to a usb stick and upload it on my machine.For the cash this is one of the better programs on the market. I have tried many and this is one of my favorites for under 200.00. You need to tweak any digitizing app but this one I’ve found to be really simple to work with that doesnt cost $500.00. The few cons for this software are: You cant resize once you click on the finish button. To be able to modify the size in this time you need to obtain an additional program (Edit N Stitch) for $199.00 or start all over. So you have to ensure that your size is right on the first step. And you need to remember to modify the background color every time to a color that isnt on your picture or it induces problems.To sum it up this is a excellent program for the price. It’s great for the home embroiderer who doesnt want to spend major $$$ on software.
