PC Stitch 10

Postby kuja.girl » Thu Nov 10, 2011 8:28 am

FYI: PC Stitch 10 is now out.
I ordered it but have not tried it out yet - I'll post a review when I get to it.

In the meantime here's a coupon code: PCS10UPG - The coupon is for upgrading to v.10 for $20.
It says it's for "upgrading" but they "upgrade" by making you purchase and download the new version so it would be worth trying it out on a new purchase as well.
I have been using PC Stitch off and on since version 5 and I really like it. If you can get it for $20 I'd say it's worth it! Let me know if the coupon worked for you.

I noticed it had the color with the number of floss in the available list. You can share patterns online. You do a username and password for that. I was looking at the other day. I haven't made a pattern with it yet. I made one pattern with version 9.

It looks like they have discontinued the "Pro" version, so all of the "Pro" functions from 9 should be available in PCStitch 10.
I just did a quick "test drive" and here are some of things that standout:
- more undos (claims up to 50 steps)
- better window interface and multiple patterns open at once!
- better color list and selection

So it is only $20 to upgrade with that code?

How is the color matching with PC Stitch? I'm using KG Chart now, but when I got a disastrous result after following KGC's suggestions for colors, I've been thinking about switching.

Now playing on the blog: Snowy Owl, gaming posts. :tri

I really like PC Stitch's color matching, so much that when I run a sprite / image through to make a pattern I normally switch out the pallet on kg chart for the one the pc stitch picked.
Imo, kg tends to pick greens a lot, and pc stitch tends to pick purples...

But, maybe some of the more experienced pattern makes have a take ^_^

I've only used KG-Chart because free is free, haha. I'm not always terribly happy with its recommendations so I use it to make the pattern and then do a floss toss with the actual colors when it comes to stitchy time. :D
But I also tweak a pattern down to as few colors as possible. I tend to be a blender and I don't think either program handles that. I do wish KG had the floss brands PC Stitch does.

use your imaaagination
