I must say I have never reviewed a program that I felt pictures said everything, until NOW. Wow, the interface is so simple and the result is so spectacular.
Paint by Number 2005 brings to quilters a simple interface that will boost their confidence to create their own pictorial quilt using appliqué, freestyle thread painting, and/or fabric painted & beaded pictorial quilt.
Quilt Embellishment Products that can be adapted to fit the Paint by Numbers concept:
The program has a very simple interface using step-by-step icons that clearly identify the steps needed to move from one operation to the next to complete the task. The clear concise tutorial (visible on the right hand of screen) answers any questions you may have about each step.
Opening Screen Overview
There is an option to add an outline around each color division for a stronger definition that will help those who feel they need additional help to define the color areas.
The numbers identify the color (paint or fabric) to be used for each section
The Color Numbers can be deselected to reduce detail even more
If the artist or quilter wishes to select a color palette that is different from the photo, using the Print Mode Black & White helps to differentiate values when selecting colors.
The level of detail choice would depend on the depth of color in the image and the finishing technique (appliqué or embellishing / shading with paint & freehand thread painting.)
If the project is to be a finished art quilt that incorporates beading, thread and fabric painting, numbering and more detail would be very beneficial.
If the goal is appliqué, less detail and fewer colors would be a better choice to help with creating the appliqué pieces.
quilter wishing to do an appliqué quilt may be required to reduce down
the number of lines to the lowest level.
NOTE: To generate a lower level of detail slide the Button closer to the low side.
Sometimes on a very detail picture with great color depth may require some additional hand/manual editing with paper and pencil to make the appliqué pieces large enough.
