    That's probably way too detailed for an embroidery pattern.
    Can you get an Image that has more than a couple hundred pixels ???

    And welcome to the TSG Forum

    Thank you for replying.....i don't know what that means, I know what pixels are but don't know how to find the count. I know the design won't be as detailed but I know it's able to do, just don't know how.

    Unfortunately, the design is too complex to do for free and an auto-convert process won't generate a usable stitch file. You would need to find a digitizer to create the embroidery design but it shouldn't cost as much as you might think. The finished design would need to be fairly large if you want much detail.

    The prices I saw were extremely expensive ($200.00-$1400). If anyone knows a digitizer that I can reach, I am willing to pay, just not hundreds of dollars for one design.

    What do you want to put it on ??????
    This might be better and cheaper.
    I tried a hat once ... That wasn't a good idea for a detailed picture .. too small size.
    And, Printing on cloth destroys the resolution.

    Edit .. don't know about Sheets ... Maybe an iron on transfer ???
    I've seen that they now make them for dark backgrounds

    @Noyb, iron won't work, I am looking to convert it to .dst I am sure most details will be lost. I want it no larger that 4 inches to put on corner of towels, sheets and dress shirts for the men of my family
