    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!

    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!

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

    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.
