Hi Aceweil, and welcome to TSG. I've asked a moderator to move this thread to the Digital Photography & Imaging forum. We have a member, Noyb, that can usually help people that request a graphics file conversion to a DST file. You may want to add another post with the desired dimensions (in inches) of the embroidered area. You may also need to specify which areas, if any, need to be filled in with white thread (i.e. all white areas or just the stripes between the other colored areas.

Wow. It looks amazing. The only question I had was if it could be made as a 2 inch by 2 inch version? The item I am hoping to place it on can only fit a 2 inch by 2 inch item. Do you think that would be possible? Otherwise, it looks perfect! Thanks so much for the help!

No Help ... It's the final stitch size (thread size) that is determining the resolution.
I'm having to downsize your original for my digitizer.

The stitch (thread) resolution is fixed ... And so is the needle placement accuracy.
And it's not very good.
The smaller it gets, the worse it'll look.
Measuring it in pixels will be misleading

Im just trying to provide an image size that would be capable of being created as a 2 inch by 2 inch DST file. I guess my lack of computer knowledge is making that a challenge. Im sorry if i am not being clear. what about this version?

FYI .. the first thing I do is size your image for ~2x2 inches in Photoshop.
Then I place it on a canvas size of 4.7 inches .. The maximum size for my digitizer (hoop size).
Then I make it a bmp .. Send it to my digitizer that outlines it as attached.
then I have to digitize "within the lines" .. at this point, the resolution is fixed

what is the dpi that you are basing the image size on? If i can figure out how to transfer the dpi I can get it to be the 2 inch by 2 inch size you would need. Is that correct? Im just thinking that if I can get the image in the size that is needed 2 be 2x2 resizing or editing wouldn't be necessary? Am I envisioning this incorrectly? I imagine I am way off, but I am so new to this I have no idea

It's not me ... It's the digitizer as in the attached bmp ..... it does the final sizing .. (downsizing)
About the only control we have is to edit the image so it's not as detailed ... or add/remove where necessary.

so what needs to be done to have it look as amazing as the initial file, but as a 2 x 2 version? I am so lost now. I guess the question is what needs to happen (be provided) for it to look as perfect as it does in that initital version, but as 2x2 rather than 4x4? a bmp file that is 2 x2??
