PixelHobby Designer Lite is a software program
created by Hobbyware, Inc. They are also the exclusive distributor of the
PixelHobby product line for North America.
Their software program allows you to make your
own Pixelhobby patterns from your favourite photographs or images.
The software automatically converts your
pictures into a Pixelhobby Design. You can then edit the design to your
liking by cropping the image, adjusting colours etc. Generally close up
portraits work best, and some images will not convert well, while others
will look great with a little bit of editing.
download their free version of the software from their webstie, once you are happy with
your design you can either email the parts list on the front page of
your pattern along with your address and within a day we will email an
invoice back to you with a quote and payment details.
Alternatively you can print
your pattern and parts list. The parts list contains a listing of the pixels
and baseplates required to complete the design.
You can then go our
Pixelhobby Supplies page and order your
baseplates and pixels online. Please note when printing your own designs you
will need to set the printer paper size at letter (8.5in x 11in) instead of
A4 as the software was designed in the US and the baseplates will only fit
on the design rectangles when printed at letter size. We recommend
selecting 4 plates per page when printing for larger designs to save you
paper and printing costs.
Also the colours on your screen may differ
slightly from the actual pixel colours, depending on the colour, contrast
and brightness settings on your monitor. Here is a Pixelhobby colour chart
to help assist with your designing as all the colours are listed as well as
the names for each colour.
