PCStitch, along with other similar products, is not designed for true high resolution unless you are wanting to make a very big project.

It has always been recommended that your image be simple, the more complex, the harder the conversion to stitching is with the limitations of floss colors and stitches. There is some inevitable blockiness from stitches because each individual stitch is a "block".

The recommendation I have always made is to make your image tiny! Have it the same length and width in pixels as the desired pattern will be in stitches. Try to have ONE pixel = ONE stitch. That way, there is less confusion for the software as to what color to make each stitch because it's not trying to merge multiple pixels with multiple colors into a single stitch.

Also note that the computer sees color and shading different than you do. You may see a straight, sharp-edged line but the computer will see a straight line but blurred along the edges. There are always confetti stitches and shadings that need to be resolved by the designer later. That is the "tweaking" phase.

The key thing to remember -- this software does NOT give you a final design. It's not intended to do that. It's a start, a "first-cut" at a design. You take over to make it the pattern you want. It's up to you to remove the confetti stitches, change colors you don't like, add special stitches (if desired) and so forth. This is the most important phase of the project.

I hope these tips help.

Good Luck,


Diane

If you're still on the forum how did your pattern(s) turn out? I've made highly detailed cross stitch patterns from my fractals. it isn't impossible. But it may feel that way if your PC is trying to convert an image greater than 4,000x4,000 pixels using this software.

Stay amazing,
