MacStitch (for iMacs and MacBooks running OSX, but not iPads) , is a great yet inexpensive application designed for making the creation of counted cross stitch charts easy, quick and fun.You draw on screen using the mouse, using your selected colors (taken from the DMC, Anchor, Madeira or several other thread ranges), and build up your design just as you would on graph paper. For the artistically challenged, you can import scanned photos or clipart, and have the program turn them into ready-to-stitch designs in minutes, at just the right size. The printouts are clear and easy to read, especially when you choose to print at the larger symbol sizes. No need run down to the print shop to get the chart enlarged when you can print it yourself! MacStitch STANDARD edition (this one) produces charts on paper , or simple PDF charts. It does not produce PDFs that can be used by apps such as Pattern Keeper - for that you should choose the PREMIUM edition instead.
