My apologies if I'm misunderstanding your question.
The freePatternWizard isn't a graphics program, so if you're trying to use that to make a pattern from a large original, it won't work well.
The best thing to do is decide on the dimensions you want the finished piece to be and then size your image accordingly, where stitches across = pixels. So if you wanted something that was 100 stitches across, you would resize your image to 100 pixels across. However, there's one other problem - the standard photo formats usually aren't good for making patterns because if they use something like a jpg format, the format will have all kinds of junk pixels introduced in different spots. That's just the nature of a jpg, unfortunately.
You may be able to get through the jpg issues before uploading to the freePatternWizard by using a graphics program to blow up the image to see if there are random pixels in the image.
In the future, there will be a version of the freePatternWizard that will allow you to do some editing, but in the meantime the version that is out there now doesn't allow that.
If you don't have a suitable graphics program and are on a Windows PC, if you'd like I can suggest two very powerful and free graphics programs that can be downloaded. Smile
