JANOME Artistic Digitizer


Paint stitch is a unique patented technique which converts a picture into embroidery through skillful reduction of the number of colors and blending in such a way that makes it look like a painted canvas. With PaintStitch you get photo-realistic embroidery results with the use of the advanced, patented algorithms which are implemented in the software. PaintStitch designs are perfect for frames, gifts and for capturing unique moments.
