Pics Print is a Windows application that makes it simple to
format and print high-quality photos, greeting cards, contact
sheets, and family albums. Using wizards and templates, you can
quickly grab images from digital cameras, scanners or disk, make
color corrections and add style to them, resize and annotate
them, and print them using your printer's highest quality
settings. Pics Print's folder browser lets you find images fast.
With an intuitive Explorer-like folder tree and high-quality
thumbnails of all of the images in that folder, identifying the
right picture is quick and easy. You can retrieve photos directly
from any digital camera, and create a contact sheet with a single
click. Using standard drag-and-drop techniques, you can move the
thumbnail images to the final document, resize them, add text,
and print them for friends and family. The program includes
WYSIWYG printing. The print preview screen lets you move, resize,
and rotate images, so you'll never waste time or ink on pages
that aren't exactly what you expect. Pics Print has a built-in
photo editor that lets you crop, resize, rotate, and
color-correct images. Users who enjoy adding artistic effects to
their photos can blur, emboss, and sharpen the images, add
borders, and produce an unlimited variety of creative touches.
There is even a red-eye remover that takes out the red circles
that the camera's flash often adds to portraits.

Embroidery Designs and
Thread Colors for Machine Embroidery Sewing
I wish that I had a nickel for each time I've been asked
for the "exact" colors I used in an embroidery design or
for a conversion chart for specific embroidery thread
brands - I would be a very wealthy woman! Everyone seems to
think that someone is going to knock on their door with a
search warrant if they don't use the exact colors a
designer used in the test sew out or the color numbers used
in the stitch directions. Not so - if you don't "think
outside the box" and use colors that you enjoy, or just
prefer, you are really missing the real fun of machine
embroidery! Come to think of it, I don't believe that I've
ever used the exact color on any design I've ever stitched
in 6+ years-some because I didn't have the exact color
& others due to a dislike of the colors used.
