Embird Embroidery Software

Creating Design Images for Cataloguing

1 - Run Embird, it will start in "Manager" mode.

2 - Use "Drive", "Folder" and "Files" boxes (located on the Right Panel at the right side of the screen) and choose the folder with embroidery designs, e.g. "C:\EMBIRD32\FILES" folder in this example. In case you are using Embird 2006 or later, you will find some free designs in "C:\Program Files\EMBIRD32\FILES" folder.

3 - In the "Files" box select the designs which you want to create images of. To select multiple designs, please move mouse pointer to the file name of the first design in the "Files:" box at the right side of the screen, depress the left mouse button and hold it down while moving the mouse pointer over the file names of the other designs. When the mouse pointer is over the last design, please release the left mouse button (Picture No. 1).

6 - After a while, the "Save As" dialog box will appear on the screen (Picture No. 4). Choose the file format for images in "Save file as type" box.You can choose between .BMP and .JPG formats. File size of image stored in .JPG file is smaller than the file size of image stored in .BMP file. On the other hand it takes more time to create the file with .JPG extension, because it contains compressed image.

7 - Finally, click "All" button to create images of all selected designs. In case you have selected only single design, click "OK" button. Images will be stored in the same folder as the designs, i.e. to "C:\EMBIRD32\FILES" folder in this example (Picture No. 4).
