Ryijy Stitch Designer

By Jari Hautio Free

Developer's Description

Ryijy Stitch Designer is a simple program for converting an image to rya rug or cross stitch pattern. Image colors can be converted to DMC floss colors, small RGB color palette, or to a custom color palette. Custom palette may be a subset of DMC colors or it can be hand picked from colors in images. This way program is also suitable for other hobby purposes such as mosaic or beadwork. Program supports cropping and resizing the image and adjusting contrast and saturation before color conversion and color reduction. Color reduction uses smart algorithm to select optimal colors using as few colors as possible. Manual color reduction by hand is also supported as well as replacing or painting individual colors directly to image. Copy&Paste feature makes editing images in an external editor easy. Final image can be printed to multiple pages with grids, annotations and color keys. Designs can be saved or shared with others through own file format, which preserves color palette information with image.
