This guide is for the Cross Stitch lovers. This program is so cool. PM Stitch Creator is a program that will allow you to take any image or picture and turn it into a cross stitch pattern. You can select what type of canvas that you will be cross stitching on, you can choose what color canvas you will be cross stitching on and more. I was so amazed when I found this program. I didn’t really think it would do all that it said it would. But it does what it said it would and more. If you love to cross stitch, you can’t go wrong with this program. You can even add text to your pattern. You have different options when you get ready to print the pattern. I will go over that later in this guide when we get to the end. I will show you how to use the PM Stitch Creator program in this guide.
PM Stitch Creator can be downloaded from downloads.com. Just go to their website and enter the program name in the search field. When the results return, click the link and you will be carried to the next page. Click the download button on the next page and a box will pop up. Tick the Save File As field in the box that pops up. Then click the Save button. Once PM Cross Stitch Creator has finished downloading, double click the zip file. A box will open and you will need to follow the steps in the box to install the program. Once you have finished the installation, click your start button and locate your program and open it.
When the program opens, you will see the screen that says you have 15 days to try this program. Click the OK button to continue. Then another screen will open. Click the top button that says “Open Picture From Disk”. Locate the picture or image on your computer in the box that popped up. Click the file and click the Open button. Then you will see your image in the new window that popped up. You can adjust the image by rotating it or cropping it. Click the Next button to move on.
In the next section you can edit the image. You can reduce the colors, make it lighter, darker, and more. Just click the button and make adjustments. Click the Next button at the bottom to move on. The next section is the size that you want your pattern to be. I would leave this as it is. If you try to blow it up, it may throw the colors off. Click the next button to move on.
In the top two boxes of the next section, you will need to drop the boxes down and select your canvas type and color type. Then adjust the Count of Fabric section if you need to and click Next. Then next section will show you all of the color that will be used. Click the Finish button to create your pattern.
Alright, now you are ready to print your pattern. Click the Finish button on the left side of your screen and click the Print Preview button. Select the one that you want to print. When it opens in the new window, click the print button. This is the basics to using PM Stitch Creator.
