Open an image and saves then cross-stitch chart in the folder you prefer directly. The program calculates the pattern with the maximum number of colors when you open an image. If you want to reduce the colors just change the number. The program shows you directly the virtual embroidery and you can use the magnifying glass to see more details. When you're satisfied with the result, save the chart. You will see that it is divided into A4 sheets, with a copy of the virtual embroidery and the modified image. Very easy to use, with only 3 basic functions: Open the image, choose the number of Colors and Save the chart. The program recognizes transparencies on images.
