    "Excellent. Many functions. Much support many lessons."

    October 26, 2013  |   By outsiderembroidery

    Version: Embird 2008 build 8.4

    Pros

    don't even know how to break it down! too many to list.

    Cons

    i cannot think of any cons. as issues come up, the developer addresses them in new builds. for example, no more support by google for desktop search? that's OK. the embird developer speeded up and refined the search within embird so we don't need google's desktop search anymore.

    Summary

    i love this program. i have been using it to view, split, edit, document, convert and combine designs for years and years. the iconizer add in is something i could not live without. i now make embroidery designs using studio, and i have made designs, but have not yet learned well how to use sfumato. that is next on my list. the customer support is not an issue because there are many many sources of classes, free and paid. there are user groups on yahoo groups where the advice is solid and correct. you can even ask embird questions on other embroidery groups not dedicated to the subject and get good answers because so many people use it. actually, the latest version is embird 2013. updates are so very reasonably priced and the program itself is the most reasonably priced out there. The money I have made as an embroiderer and now as a digitizer would not have been possible without embird.

    "The program messed up my images on my computer!"

    September 4, 2011  |   By TwinkleHorse

    Version: Embird 2008 build 8.4

    Pros

    I like it because you can inlarge and shrink the patterns. My other program that came with my machine doesn't allow this.

    Cons

    It messed up my image programs on my computer and now I can't pull up any images at all. I can't see any pictures that I have on my computer and I can't use any graphics editors. JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP nothing will work!

    Summary

    If I could rate it with less than 1 star I would. I've never had a program give me so much problems with other programs. I'm still waiting to here from Customer Service on what I can do to fix it. I hope I here back before the trial is up. I'd probably buy it if they can help me fix the problem but I want to be able to use it for awhile after the problem is fixed to make sure it doesn't revert.

    "Absolute BEST embroidery software on the market!!!!!!!"

    December 13, 2010  |   By provrb31

    Version: Embird 2008 build 8.4

    Pros

    Embird will do anything you want it to do, for so much less money than other embroidery software!!!!!! As well, they are not a big impersonal company that only cares about the money it makes...Embird 1000% cares about & listens to its users!!!!!

    Cons

    NO cons...I absolutely LOVE my Embird!!!!!!! I would be lost without it...I do ALL my digitizing in Embird!!!!

    Summary

    Five stars is not enough for this program...there are not enough stars to rate Embird with!!!!!!! I have used Embird since they first began years ago, and it works well on all platforms. I have Windows 7, 64 bit, and it works without any hitches. Will work on older platforms, such as XP, etc., as well.

    I own Embird and all their plug-ins, and they are ALL fabulous!!!!!!! The absolute BEST money, and least money, I ever spent...I use Embird daily, and again, I can't begin to state how lost I'd be without it!!!!! If you are looking for only one embroidery program to buy, Embird is THE one to go with!!!!!!!!!
