How do I deactivate my software from my machine?
I have purchased patterns from a lot of different designers. Can I use pattern pictures of their designs in Quilter’s LightBox?
- Absolutely! We are inviting pattern designers to participate in our free monthly pattern pictures updates. We have just confirmed that Anne Bright will be participating in the free pattern picture updates!
- You can grab images of designs off the internet, or use Snippet to make screen shots of the patterns to use in Quilter’s LightBox.
- If you make your own designs you can do the same thing. Either make .jpgs of the patterns through whatever software you use to draw in, or pull up the stitching pattern in your quilting software and capture the screenshot.
How can I audition edge-to-edge designs?
- The software comes with single repeat pattern pictures. If the edge to edge design you want to audition is a Sweet Dreams Quilt Studio design, we are happy to create a 4 repeat x 1 row image for you. We plan to create a library of these extended pattern pictures in the future.
I am a pattern designer. How can I get my designs distributed for use with Quilter’s LightBox software?
