Q Is an Internet connection needed to run the software?
A The Demo does not require an Internet connection. However, the licensed (retail) version requires Internet access to register the software. Once the software is registered, Internet access is required – at least temporarily for the first several usages of the software – to verify the registration. After that, the software can be run entirely offline (without Internet access) if necessary. Internet access is, however, desirable to receive timely update information and download updates.
- This is a demo version and intended to show what the software is capable of doing
- Demo is limited to 3 colors - but you can use the Palette tool, set it to 4 colors (including the background), to sew out the entire image
The help that accompanies SewArt contains a mini-tutorial that describes the steps necessary to load input image files and convert them to embroidery files. After opening SewArt by double-clicking the desktop icon, click the Help/Help Topics menu item. This will open the Getting Started main help page which presents a step-by-step tutorial for using the various features of SewArt.
Several image-processing tools are available in SewArt. In many cases, these will be necessary to use in order to reduce the color content and smooth the image file before it can be sewn. Usually, clipart images are already smooth enough to be sewn immediately, so these constitute a good set of images for starting to use the digitizing features of SewArt.
Once a suitable image has been obtained the auto-digitizing Sewing mode is entered by clicking the Convert toolbar button (the sewing-machine icon). This presents a stitching toolbar from which choices for pattern fills, stitch angles, etc., can be made. Options for auto-digitizing the entire image or just a single color, or manually sewing each color in the image, are available on this toolbar.
For simple, clean images the conversion process can take less than 5 minutes to complete. More complicated images will take longer and require use of the image conversion tools prior to producing the embroidery file.
