Talking Converting a logo to DST for Embroidery
Hi guys, I am new to this forum and am trying to figure out how to get a DST file created from my graphic. I saw in the past someone was able to help a member that was looking for the same type of answer. I have a GIF file I created which seemed to take away from the quality a bit, but once it gets shrunk to 2.5 height and 3.2 width or so, it should look fine. I will attach the image below, if anyone is able to help me I would be forever grateful!! In any case, any help would be appreciated! P.S- the background should be transparent, this is why I used a GIF file :-)

I Also have a hi res PNG file if that would help more!

Thanks!

thick stitching?
Sorry! I meant to ask this above...Is there a way to increase stitch count to make the embroidery thicker? or is this not recommended? I want it to look solid...

Thanks!

Noyb, thats is perfect!! Looks great! Would it be too much trouble if I posted the updated pic for u to try and get that last star in there? I got the outlines much thicker. Ill post it in a sec and if you get a chance to do it id reeeaally appreciate it. This is great how much you help people on here! We greatly appreciate it! I will be sure to send u a hat when i get em made.

The Red Borders around the stars will have to be about twice as thick.
I can do that if you can't.

I'm using Janome's Customizer 10000 Plus for the digitizing ...
BuzzXplore for the file conversions ..
And Photoshop for the Image editing

Photoshop to edit the png (or other formats) and convert to a bmp for the Janome EasyImport digitizer that creates a Janome jef embroidery file.
The problem (work) is in the digitizing.
Then BuzzXplore to convert the jef to a dst embroidery file

Janome is Free .. Buzz isn't.

You might want to look at the freeware SophieSew and the tutorials.
But it looks like it has a much higher learning curve.
