Beading loom pattern with many colors
December 23, 2017 at 12:57:51 PM
 
I'm working on a bead loom, with a pattern from a photograph. There will be many colors that are too similar to tell them apart on the picture pattern. Can I get a word pattern to help? Or do you have any suggestions on how best to do this? 

Thank you.

Amandy,

Welcome! Smile

We don't recommend using the "colors only" option when creating your pattern. We instead recommend using either "symbols only" or "both colors and symbols," which will help clarify which color is which. To do this, in option #7 you should choose "pattern in PDF format" and then under the "Pdf:" area, you can choose "symbols only" or "both colors and symbols." "Colors only" should only be used for the most basic of patterns with only a handful of colors. Of course you're right that the human eye can't tell which colors are which when you have a lot of different shades of, say, blue!

We do have beading word charts in our plans but at the moment this feature isn't available.

This worked great. Thank you very much!

I will make a donation today. When you add word patterns, I will up my donation to a total of $50, what I paid that mean man who created BeadTool 4.

Thank you again.

Amandy,

You're so welcome! And thank you kindly for your donation! Kiss

We're very happy to know this works for you. Smile And of course word patterns are important...I also much prefer them. With graphs, I can just about start seeing spots after looking at them too long! Wink It's soooo much easier to read a word chart.

Hope you had a great holiday!
