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!

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.

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.

This has been great in helping me to create a cross stitch for my brother. Two things I would love to see:
1) A way to mark the progress I’ve made in the app, to find where I left off easier
2) An option to use less than 8 colors. I am cross stitching a word currently, yet the app is still requiring 8 colors. I’d be happy with two or three, but it’s difficult to transfer a name or word into a simple image.

Keep up the good work!

Hello, thanks for your feedback - we really appreciate such a detailed comment.
UPD: Both features are available in the 2.1 version - just tap on the needed square and it will be highlighted as completed. We would appreciate your feedback regarding new tools and design change.
Best regards,
