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.

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!

Needs an update that allows for exporting.

Really an awesome app for converting images to cross stitch patterns. Would give it a five star if only a way to export or even better to print your chart. As it is now I have to have my iPad with me and chatted if I want to work on it. Perfect amount of options so the user is not easily confused.
