Hi All,

My sister has recently gotten into cross stitching photos, so as a fun project and present to her I made a site (http://www.myphotostitch.com/Advanced.html) where you can upload photos and it will convert them into cross stitch patterns.  (devilxcat mentioned it previously in this thread)

It lets you select a maximum number of thread colors, a pattern size (either in stitches or in inches), and then converts your photo into a cross stitch photo.  It's got a few other bells and whistles (e.g. it tries to generate a preview of what the final result will look like).  For example,  for a photo of a maccaw it generates a pattern and preview like

(generated pattern here.)

It also works with illustrations, but with them it's generally best if they are small (1 pixel/stitch).  I'm planning on making my first stitch ever this weekend:

(starting small, since I've never cross stitched before  Smiley )

Anyway, the reason I'm mentioning the website here is that (1) I hope this community will find it helpful, and (2) I'd love feedback as to what would make it even more useful.  I must admit, I know basically nothing about cross stitching and so I've probably made some glaring mistakes, but I'd really like to make the site a good, useful, and free option, so any feedback is much appreciated.
