Size and Color Issues

I like this app but had two problems. 1. My picture was horizontal and although I watched the tutorial I had trouble figuring out how to make it fit. I did finally realize that there is a “box” that changes the shape. This needs to be addressed in the tutorial. 2. My picture contains a considerable amount of white. But when I converted it the color became cornflower blue very light. This is VERY different from white.
I wasted both time and money (since I used the trial and all 3 of my paid conversions) trying to resolve these two issues. And I still have to try to adjust the colors to my picture!

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback. We are working on advanced crop tool and better color palette selection. Sorry for the inconvenience, we will take into account these issues in the next application update.
We really appreciate your review and will do our best to make your embroidery experience more enjoyable.

Update wiped my progress

The most recent app update deleted all of my progress on my patterns and it’s going to take me hours to go through each pattern and remark what I have already completed.

That being said, I love that I can make my photos into cross stitches. Being able to either track digitally or export a PDF file is wonderful, and I’m able to air drop a pattern between my iPad and my iPhone has been nice.

Until this update, the only issue I had is that the timer occasionally malfunctions and marks me at some weird 80,000+ hour mark.

Great app for creating your own

I really like how easy it is to create my own projects from selecting my image to adjust sizing and amount of colors. It’s especially convenient to be able to go back to a pattern and adjust these settings later without having to create a new file. I would give 5 stars if it also had the ability to send the pattern to a pdf in the free version. Can’t wait to get a premium version that can do that.
