The Silhouette Studio® Designer Edition provides the ability to convert images into rhinestone patterns for rhinestone sizes 6ss, 10ss, 16ss, and 20ss.
To access this feature in the Designer Edition, go to the Object menu and select Rhinestones, or select the Rhinestone icon:
This panel will allow you to select the following options.
None - Removes any rhinestone effect and reverts a converted image back into a regular line.
Edge - Provides a rhinestone path around the edge of of all lines present
Linear Fill - Fills the image with a fill type that is linear (a series of straight lines of rhinestones)
Radial Fill - Fill the image with a fill type that is radial (a circular series of rhinestone patterns starting from the outer edge and going inward)
Selecting a rhinestone size will immediately adjust your image to show the pattern with the selected size applied.
The spacing option allows you to adjust how close the rhinestones will be in your pattern. Lower values bring your rhinestones closer together and provide a higher level or detail, but increase the number of rhinestones needed for your image.
Select - Provides a shortcut to revert to a select cursor if other drawing tools have been selected
Single Click - Allows for the placement of single rhinestone circles in the selected rhinestone size in any desired location
Freehand - Provides the ability to draw a continuous line of rhinestones in the selected size
This option will release the rhinestone pattern and allow you to move, delete, or otherwise manipulate individual parts of the rhinestone pattern you have created.
A counter is provided at the bottom of the rhinestone panel to show a live count of how many rhinestones of each size appear in your workspace.
