Photo Processing
lighthouse1 The original photo is scanned in and area cropped to your specifications.
lighthouse2 Specific items can be outline cropped to eliminate background.
lighthouse3 The background can be filled in with a color to match a shade of cloth and the image blended into that color of background.

The image is then resampled to the specific size you request and the number of colors is reduced from millions to 256 as required by the conversion software. The resulting image is then loaded into the conversion software at the number of colors requested for the chart which can be any number up to 150 colors and the conversion takes place. Symbols are selected to represent each of the colors. Fabric size and color information is entered and the resulting chart is scaled to fit pages for printing.
