Embrilliance products are on sale until June 18. Here are
just a few of the reasons that I love this software.
As far as I am concerned, Embrilliance
is the most economical and easiest to use machine embroidery organizing and
editing programs on the planet. I have used Embrilliance Essentials
for about 10 years. I added Thumbnailer
and, most recently, Enthusiast.
I do not promote items unless I believe in them and here are a few of the
things I particularly like about Embrilliance (and I have tried several other
options over the years).
These programs work independently of each other. That means
you can buy them as you go with an initial investment as low as $39.
Many embroidery editing programs are built into digitizing
programs costing thousands of dollars. Most of the time, they are overkill for
the typical embroiderer and the learning curve is substantial.
EASE OF USE
These programs are very easy to download and install. They work
on both Mac and PC platforms and you can install it on multiple computers per
the license. I found that they were very easy to use as well. And there was not
a major malfunction every time Windows upgraded versions, unlike my embroidery
machine manufacturer’s software.
Thumbnailer is a game changer. It allows you to see icons of
your embroidery files right on your computer screen without having to open
them. The program recognizes more than 30 file formats. That helps tremendously
with organizing your files. Get more specifics about how Thumbnailer works here.
Essentials is really handy when creating text to embroider.
You can type and shape text as well as add text to existing designs. Twelve
fonts are included and you can import any BX font into Essentials.
You can also easily change, add, or delete colors in your
design and even alter the stitch sequence. Thread libraries can be customized, accommodating
a variety of thread lines.
Designs can be combined with other designs, too. Special
applique functions allow you to create cut files for Brother
ScanNCut, Silhouette Cameo, and others.
Enthusiast is a bit more advanced than Essentials, but still easy
to comprehend. In addition to what you can do with essentials, you can actually
edit stitches in your embroidery designs and easily delete parts of a design
that you do not want to stitch.
You can position designs precisely, mirror them, and even split
designs that are too large for your hoop. Plus, the knockdown stitch function
is wonderful for embroidering on towels and blankets.
This barely touches the surface of all that Embrilliance can do. I
know nothing of the Stitch Artist modules for digitizing, AlphaTricks, or the Density Repair Kit, but have seen good
Bottom line, it was a worthwhile investment!
