Lastest upgrade - change to import

Postby DPSoftware » Sun Dec 30, 2012 12:49 pm

The latest update added a change to the importing which has resulted in a few technical support questions.

The new feature is dithering which aims to eliminate the banding you get on slowly changing colours (like faces) by using dot patterns of different shades. This is likely to please those creating super realistic photo to charts particularly in large count designs. However those that are creating commercial kits and prefer large areas of solid colour, will not want this feature.

To go back to the previous importing method, simply uncheck the "Use dithering" checkbox on the import dialog box.

You may want to try a few imports with and without the dithering turned on until you find out if it helps for your style of work.
