Option to use a file dialog window to choose the input image
Accepts most common image formats (jpg, gif, png, bmp, …)
Images converted to black & white (1 bit deep)
Darker pixels knitted with “contrast” yarn
Images stretched vertically to compensate for stitches being wider than they are tall. Adjustable stretch factor, default is 1.5 (3/2).
Large images will be resized smaller, to fit in one track
Adjustable maximum width option (default is 200)
Black & white pattern saved to .b+w.png image file for inspection (in the folder that contains the input image)
Pattern data written to sector files for loading with emulator
Log file records operations and errors for debugging
I’m working on feature requests and beta testing, and encourage you to do the same and post up in the Adafruit forums! Thanks Davi!
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
