    Gary Browning has a book out on it (Scroll Saw Portraits), but there are several people on the site who make their own patterns. I know Canadian Scroller uses Serif a lot...perhaps he can help!

      I use Corel Photo Shop Plus. If you don't have any luck, e-mail me the photo and I'll see what I can do with it.

          Has anyone tried Coyote Stencil Shop, to make patterns from pictures?

            Some love it, some think it a waste of money. I'm in the latter group. Good news is that you can download a trial version with the only limitation that you can't save your work. Personally, I'm not impressed with it.

              Jim, if you scroll down to the bottom of the page, on the left you’ll find some style options that change the font size and color. I’ve been using Defalt vB5 Style, and it seems to be about the best for my iPad, but I’m still experimenting with my iMac.

              Hi - This is my first visit to the forum in about 3 weeks and I was surprised to see the font size so large after checking on two different browsers on my PC, namely Chrome and Edge. Both my browsers are set to 100% view and other sites look fine on my 27" monitor. Also the forum looks far too...

              Linda your goal was accomplished - to do something you wanted and get it in front of lots of people plus you won a ribbon. Great job!
