Sherry,

Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge on the subject!  Kiss

Sounds like we need to differentiate TSS and TKS, then.

Hopefully we can have a solution for it soon that will be helpful to all.  Smile

Hello. First off, let me say that I am loving this site. It has renewed by excitement about cross stich and even my son wanta to try! He loves that he could pick his project and I could creat a pattern for him. His first lesson is tomorrow.
It would be amazing to make some projects a little larger than 150x188, I have a few I would like to see larger.
Also, some of the options at the bottom of the pattern maker, I have to confess, I don't understand what they mean or what they do. It would be great to understand what they do, how they work so that I could properly apply them to my patterns. I have a few that are being difficult, I suspect one of those magic boxes would help fix up my problems, but I have no clue as to which one to use... lol
If someone could dumb down the simple tools, that would be great!
Etc - Antialias (no idea what this word even means)
How does blur work? What is Gaussian blur?  What does edge detection do? Emboss?  Sketch?
And stray pixel clean up, when would I want to use this?
So many questions... Sorry!

While it's not technically a beading book, I know many beaders are into chainmail, as well, so I'm notifying you here about a new free Kindle chainmail book.  As with any Kindle downloads, it may not be free for very long, so grab it before the price goes up again!  (Note: you do not need to have an actual Kindle.  If you have a smartphone, you can download a Kindle reader app for FREE...if all you have is a PC, you can download to your PC...and I believe there may also be a way now of completely bypassing any kind of reader app to read directly online - though please don't quote me on that, as I'm not sure.  I find the PC reader to be quite decent for pattern content...since I don't own a Kindle, I can't say how well it works...but I would think a smaller screen would make patterns kind of difficult to read.)

Welcome!  Smile

Your spelling is just fine!

The beading bug loves to bite pretty much anyone, LOL, and if your wife likes jewelry, I'm sure she'll appreciate some beautifully handmade things!  Smile  And if not, there are still many more things to make besides jewelry.

Feel free to ask any questions or to post pics of your work, even if it's just work in progress.  Smile

What stitches have you tried?  When I was new to beads, I started with netting, square stitch and peyote.  LOL, made a lot of mistakes with all of them, but I did have fun in the process, and that's what counts!  Smile

I posted one FREE crochet book for Kindle for today...grab it before it's gone!  (Note: you do not need to have an actual Kindle.  If you have a smartphone, you can download a Kindle reader app for FREE...if all you have is a PC, you can download to your PC...and I believe there may also be a way now of completely bypassing any kind of reader app to read directly online - though please don't quote me on that, as I'm not sure.  I find the PC reader to be quite decent for pattern content...since I don't own a Kindle, I can't say how well it works...but I would think a smaller screen would make patterns kind of difficult to read.)
