    Hey noyb,
    Was wondering if you could help me convert this into a tajima .dst file with an outline.
    I really appreciate it!

    OK I have downloaded many freeware and open source imaging and digitizing and embroidery programs but none will convert a BMP to DST which I need to do for a file!

    I noticed a thread where an expert on here (Noyb) had converted a BMP for someone into .dst format.

    If Noyb (or any other user) could help me out, it would be much appreciated!

    Thanks so much - I am a Network Administrator in IT feild for 15 years.

    Thanks!

    Why don't you use an image editing programme to convert the BMP to a PNG or jpeg or to whatever your programme requires as the input format?

    The file type I need (.DST) is specific to the embroidery and sewing industry. It is uncommon and most imaging programs don't support it. The software to edit and convert these types of files is quite expensive and I could not find and open source or freeware that would do it.

    Convert the BMP to jpg or whatever else your DST creation software needs is what I meant.

    BMP / JPG / GIF first needs to be converted to a JEF, then to a DST. I couldn't get it to a JEF with any of the programs I researched. The DST conversion wasn't as difficult to work around.
