Re: Converting color photos into color embroidery with MBX
Digitizer MBX is a remarkably powerful piece of software, especially for the price. However it is not particularly adept at converting a photograph containing millions of separate color dots into embroidery with at most 78 colors. To achieve what you want, you will need to learn to do your own digitizing. If you haven't gone through Trevor's DVD that came with your software, do so now.

Don't be discouraged! You must give yourself time to learn and practice. Nearly 30 years ago I decided to take piano lessons, something I never was able to do as a child. Once I semi-mastered the C Major scale, I was ready to attempt a sonata by Mozart euphemistically titled (in German) "For Beginners". I soon learned why it is said that Mozart is "too simple for children and too difficult for adults." With MANY hours of practice I was finally able to play an almost passable version of the second movement, but not the first. As I often have done, I tried to skip the learning process. Don't do that! Take your time and enjoy the journey. Digitizing is a lot of fun, and once you have had some successes you'll likely find it as addictive as the rest of us!
