brown scale
March 17, 2015 at 2:46:18 PM
 
I've notice we have a grey scale but is there any way to add a brown scale to the list of choices we can choose from? Is there a way to create one from the color grid, not sure what colors it would take to do a proper brown scale will have to check on that but the photos I've made graphs from are nice but would like them in a brown scale instead of grey.

Welcome!  Smile

Thank you for the suggestion...we'll take it under consideration.  Smile  We're discussing many different options, as we plan to greatly expand the program in the future.

Also, keep in mind that such a feature would be great for cross stitch and even for beadweaving, but if you're looking for such a feature for crochet or knitting, you'll likely have a very hard time finding yarn matches.  The problem with fibers for crochet or knitting is that manufacturers tend not to stock very many different shades of a particular color, as it's harder to sell a lot of different shades when a shade or three of each color will keep stock moving (and you may have noticed that big box craft stores don't carry every shade a manufacturer offers).  Even using yarns from a few different manufacturers is not recommended, as you may find different thicknesses (despite the fact that the yarns may be similarly size-rated) and different types of fibers that won't work well with your project may have to be combined.

I agree with mlyoder. Especially in making picture pattern, I prefer brown shades. Thats why i edit first the photo which change hue; the app sketch photo help me a lot..
