Picture keeps changing.. Help!
April 16, 2020 at 3:55:17 PM
Hi, I just found this site, and it is going to be so helpful once I can figure out how to do this! 
I keep putting in the same picture, but it doesnt come out enough for me to see the stitches.. Im trying to cross stitch some things but Id like a style of alphabet I can only find online. How do I make it, to where the picture turns out clear enought for me to trace over?

Look at that smile! (Photo guaranteed unretouched)

Welcome! Smile
Please tell me if I'm understanding the problem correctly. You send a font through the freePatternWizard, but it's not turning out clear?
The problem with a font is if it has a bunch of thin lines it will be impossible for the freePatternWizard to see and replicate them. Something with, say, a sweeping script of wide and thin lines will only show the wide lines. The same goes for a font with very thin serifs.
If I'm correct above, then you may not be able to use the particular font you want to use. I know suitable fonts that are all thick lines are disappointing, especially when you have your heart set on a beautiful font, but some simply don't convert well. The freePatternWizard tries to make patterns based on what it sees and if lines are too thin, it won't see them as being part of the pattern, I'm sorry to say. Frown
