Embroidery Designs Digitizing Software
Embroidery Magic 2 software program was created with multiple function lettering, editing and digitizing features for embroidery designs and was designed for those who have home embroidery machines and software. We have also have had customers purchase this embroidery software who have well established commercial embroidery businesses but have found that it creates better lettering than any other program they have purchased, regardless of price! However, in regard to the EM 2 price, it should be understood that you will not get the full features of a high end digitizing program with a lot of "bells and whistles". Let's focus on what is included in this great, very affordable program!
Features of Embroidery Magic 2
This embroidery software generates text stitch files from keyboard font styles. This allows the user to resize and use up to three different styles of underlay and also determine other settings for various uses of the embroidery lettering created.
It also allows the user to manually digitize machine embroidery designs from the tools provided.
The Real View feature will allow you to see an embroidery design in a more realistic way than the digitizing view allows. [Please remember that this is not an exact replication of the actual stitched design.]
EM 2 has 114 different fabric backgrounds with the capability of adding fabric choices by scanning a fabric and saving as a bmp file format in the "Fabric" folder of EM 2.
There is a Tutorial available that shows new users, in a step by step fashion, how to use this great software bargain.
Sandy Carter is the author of embroidery articles at embroidery designs by Thread Artist. She has an article about embroidery software for digitizing and lettering fonts at embroidery software. There is free embroidery digitizing Tutorial at this web address - embroidery by Thread Artists.
