Online Designer: upload logo / photo
Click the top left button "image" in the Online Designer, and choose image/logo to upload (JPG or PNG).
Mobile users can directly take a picture with device camera and upload it.
Original image to knittable image
Original image/logo is displayed top left after upload. See color reduced and resized file in the design area below.
Red and white are selected for color reduction, product would be knitted in these colors only, as displayed in the design.
Click (+) to add a color. In the example, royal blue is selected and then displayed in the knittable file.
Untick checkbox next to color if it should not be used in this logo, but still be in use elsewhere in the design.
Pixel to stitch
Image/logo can be recognized in the product if you can recognize it in the design. Use the zoom function to check details. One pixel in the design file will become one knitted stitch in the product.
The logo on the left is scaled too small and can hardly be recognized. The copy on the right can be well recognized, but has a lot of false/astray pixel in it.
Dithered or not
Option "Photo": dithering used for color reduction, better for photos and gradients
Option "Logo": solid color areas, better for logos.
In the "Photo" example, grey background is rendered in the selected colors white, red and blue.
"Logo" is recommended here.
