Welcome to the PREMIER+™ 2 Newsletter. Check out our breaking information in News, then stick around for some inspiration!
Today's topic is Color Tone , found in PREMIER+™ 2 Embroidery, and in the Modify and Sketch modules or apps.
Color Tone has tools for adjusting thread color palette brightness and contrast, and choosing different thread ranges.
PREMIER+™ 2 for Windows and Mac version 12.3 is coming soon.
With this update you can send a design from your mySewnet™ enabled embroidery machine and it will appear on your computer. Make changes using the PREMIER+™ 2 Embroidery System and send it back to the machine for sewing.
This feature requires the embroidery machine software to be updated. Both updates will be available later this year.
Also, new videos are waiting at the PREMIER+™ 2 Learning Center!
Use Color Tone to transform the Brightness, Contrast and Gamma in your selected embroidery design.
Brightness lightens or darkens a design’s colors.
Click Reset to return to the original values from any adjustments you have made.
Contrast increases or decreases the amount of contrast in the design to add emphasis or make colors stand out more boldly.
Gamma adjusts both brightness and contrast at the same time to intensify the darker areas without washing out or over-exposing light or bright areas.
Use Thread Range to quickly convert from one thread range to another.
Color Tone is present in PREMIER+™ 2 Embroidery and PREMIER+™ 2 Modify on Windows and Mac, and in PREMIER+™ 2 Sketch on Windows. Find it in PREMIER+™ 2 EMBROIDERY and PREMIER+™ 2 ULTRA or in the PREMIER+™ 2 Design Enhancer add-on for Windows.
