Sizimg of pocture on graph
July 28, 2019 at 1:20:31 AM
 
I am totally lost! I uploaded my picture (a siloutete of mini mouse head) amd made the graph but her head is as big as the blanket! I would like it smaller in the middle. How do I adjust the size of the image on tye actual pattern?

Sarkar,
Welcome! Smile
The important thing to remember when making a pattern is that the way you want your pattern to look should be adjusted in your image first. For that, I'd suggest using a graphics program. If you're using a PC I can steer you to two free and very powerful programs that you can use for this purpose.
Your image before uploading should be the number of pixels across = the number of stitches across that you want. (At this time the program doesn't allow the vertical number of rows to be adjusted.) So if you want your blanket to be 50 stitches wide, your image should be 50 pixels wide.
This can't be done in the freePatternWizard because it's not a graphics program and it likely won't produce a good result. Thus, the image manipulation should be done in a graphics program before it's uploaded.
Then when you go to upload your image, using the example of 50 stitches wide, in option #6 you would take the top choice, where it says, "I wish to enter my desired count - Number of stitches desired:" and instead of the 80 that it defaults to, you'd enter the number 50. That will give you the correct pixel-to-stitch ratio. Smile

Feeee,
Welcome! Smile
There are two free programs I highly recommend. Both are for Windows machines.
The first is paint.net, which is available here:
The other is Gimp, available here:
