A:How to convert a jpeg file to a dst file for embroidery

Hi pegs1731, and welcome to TSG.

Due to copyright concerns, members are no longer allowed to make DST files for other members.


There may be free programs that will allow you to manually digitize your jpeg file to create a DST file. More automatic programs may be available, but they are not cheap.

I have a PSD file that I converted to a jpeg image for a Facebook cover. No problems so far. Looks right.
I needed to change the phone/name in this file sent to me. I don't have photoshop nor do I use it, so I opened the file in notepad++. Made changes then saved, however... when I go back to converting the file to jpeg, the image doesn't look like the original file that DID convert originally. Just a mess of colors.How did the first file convert just fine and the edited one did not? They are both PSD file extensions. Am I saving it in notepad++ wrong? There are no errors on the code, changes were only a name and phone number. I know I am overlooking something real simple, but can't figure out what that is.

A:editing PSD file then converting to jpeg

You can use Paint.NET and the PSD plugin to open the file and edit it inside of Paint.NET. GiMP supports PSD out of the box but it has a steeper learning curve.

Hi guys don't really know where to put this because I don't know what is causing it.  I was infected with cryptolocker and the 4 files can still be found in just about every folder on the computer however the infection is no longer active?  I don't get the messages anymore when I reboot/log in.
After the infection was removed everything seemed fine.  That was a couple months ago. Last night I needed a picture and I went back to get it and found out all my thumbnails are gone (they show the place holder and file name but not the picture) and the pics wont open on an entire hard drive and scattered throughout the computer.  (I localize most pics on one drive) The video files are ok though.  I have been searching the web and downloaded data repair (stellarphoenix).  Tried photo shop because I read that it would open files with bad headers.  Tried gimp.  Tried my linux box.  When I look on the network linux cannot even see the files.  Tried the following command at C: assoc .jpeg=jpegfile and get access denied error occurred while processing jpeg.  
In some folders half the files are there and half are not.  I originally noticed when I clicked on the image and got this message.  "windows photo viewer can't open this picture because the file appears to be damaged, corrupted or is too large.
Sadly this is years and years of family photos.  Naturally no system restore or backup.  : ( ... Read more

A:Solved: Need to convert a file to *.DST for embroidery

Hey all,

I am in a bit of a bind. I need to convert a .jpeg logo to a .dst image in order for an embroidery store to stitch the logo on a hat. It's a birthday present for my boss and I need to have it in a week! Unfortunately, the embroidery store will be charging me an exorbitant amount to digitize the logo, so I am looking for a more cost-effective solution.

I noticed an expired thread where a distinguished member (Noyb) had converted a simply logo for someone into .dst format. If Noyb (or any other user) could help me out, you'd be saving my life.

Any info on free .dst conversion software would also be helpful, as google has failed me on this one.



Edit by Administrator Cookiegal regarding this thread:

Please post all of your requests for .DST file conversions for embroidery projects in that designated thread. Our resources are limited as we only have a couple of members who are able to do this type of work and willing to give of their time and expertise so please be patient. Unfortunately, we may not be able to handle all requests.

Note that, in order to ensure that only the intended recipient receives the digitized file, instead of uploading it as an attachment in the public forums, it will be emailed to you. Therefore, please make sure that you have the option to receive emails enabled in your profile for this purpose. You can always disable that option again once you've received the file.


A:File Conversions to .dst for Embroidery Are no Longer Being Accepted

For those who request an image file to be converted to an embroidery file and are looking for a free program to accomplish that, there aren't any really good auto conversion programs. The auto-convert process can convert many types of image files into stitch files, but the results can be less than optimal.

Generally, simple clip art style images do pretty well in the auto-convert process but complex designs may require manual digitizing to obtain a nice embroidery design. The digitizing process isn't simply feeding a program an image and saving the resulting file as a DST (or other) type of file. That's an auto-conversion process.

I've attached some screen shots of designs that were manually digitized using artwork from several posts asking for file conversions. The main objection to having a digitizer create the embroidery design seems to be cost. For personal use on a cap or similar item, an auto-converted design is probably going to suffice. For a design that is to be stitched on several items, it may be better to find a digitizer or a local embroidery shop that can provide a top quality stitch file.

Sorry, I misspelled artwork in the title.....

Much better than I can do in my so called Auto Digitizer that's freeware.

Hi guys, I am new to this forum and am trying to figure out how to get a DST file created from my graphic. I saw in the past someone was able to help a member that was looking for the same type of answer. I have a GIF file I created which seemed to take away from the quality a bit, but once it gets shrunk to 2.5 height and 3.2 width or so, it should look fine. I will attach the image below, if anyone is able to help me I would be forever grateful!! In any case, any help would be appreciated! P.S- the background should be transparent, this is why I used a GIF file

You would have to edit each frame of the video file. It's not like there's a line of code that says "use face file man1.jpg". It's going to take more work than a file substitution.

A:Converting a .clp file to a Word 2000 .doc file?

Well, it appears that it could be one of the following file types:

You searched for file extension: .clp

Clipart GraphicProgram: QUATTRO PRO
Clipboard fileProgram: MS WINDOWS
Compiler Script (Clip List)Program: CLIPPER 5

So that depends.

You can always try, from Word, File-Open. Change the files of type to "recover text from any file" and try opening the file.

Don't forget to change the file types back to Word docs after you've used that file type or you'll forget and be in trouble next time you open a file.

These are the instructions handed to me:

1. Download VCF-to-23andMe. The two scripts in this directory require Python 3.

2. First, run the data_to_db.py script using your VCF file as input. This generates the genome.db file:

> python3 data_to_db.py input.vcf.gz vcf genome.db

3. Then run db_to_23.py script using the genome.db file as input. This produces a file in the 23andMe format:

> python3 db_to_23.py genome.db blank_v3.txt 23andMe.txt

So, I go on command prompt and tried copy pasting the 1st command and I got a genome.db file but when I copy paste the 2nd command line (the one involving db_to_23.py) nothing happens. Youre supposed to start off with a vcf file and 2 python scripts to convert it. Im not sure how to do this.

All I have are a VCF file and 2 python scripts. If someone could describe the process from a fresh start to how I would convert it to 23andMe then that would be helpful.

Just a technical maneuvering issue.

It can convert from one type to another---just open the picture with the program, then go to File, Save As, and choose the format you would like in the dropdown box.

Hello all! I'm having a problem opening some JPEG files that a friend sent me through email. I'm running windows XP media center edition, and I can't view the photos in the photo viewer. I get "no preview available". Also, when I try to open the files in the photoimpression software, its says "wrong file format". I can view all other JPEGS fine. It's just the ones from my friends computer. He says I'm the only one who has problems with his emails, so I'm assuming it's on my end. One more thing I should mention is that he's sending these files from a mac computer, but he's using a converter that he says works, because everyone else receives the files correctly.

I would appreciate any and all suggestions as I am at a complete loss.

Is it possible to pin a jpeg file to the task bar so that I can easily open it with a single click from wherever I am. It is possible to pin it to the jump list for some programs on my Taskbar (eg Calculator & Notepad) but not to others (eg Explorer). I can also pin it to the Start menu. However, trying to pin it directly to the Taskbar fails.

And the reason for all this? The jpeg is a picture of the 2011 calendar which I would like to be able to call up with a single click from wherever I am and whatever is on the screen at the time.

Any other way of doing this will, of course, be gratefully accepted.
