Convert any photo to a beautiful PaintStitch masterpiece
Any photo can now become a beautiful embroidery design. With PaintStitch you will get photo-realistic embroidery results with the use of the advanced, patented algorithms that were implemented for this purpose. PaintStitch designs are perfect for frames, gifts and for capturing unique moments.
Convert your designs to redwork
One step conversion of any design to redwork (designs that are created with red running stitches on white fabric). Create light weight embroidery designs by keeping only their outlines. Redwork designs are a trendy yet traditional way of creating clear minimal designs which are beautiful and modern.
Convert fill to center line
With the "Convert fill to center line" function you have the ability to change a fill area made with Satin, Step, Piping etc. into Satin serial or Running stitch. This option is very convenient especially for small text objects. If the text is too small to be filled with Satin stitches, the best alternative is to fill the object with Running stitches by applying this function.

You can also group the objects by color and customize the information you view on the sequence manager, to minimize clutter when re-ordering large designs.
Multiple units added to Measure tool
