Recoloring & Resizing

Re-coloring Designs

(for Embird Editor 2008 & above)

This downloadable tutorial is about how easy it is to change colors in a series of designs using the Load command in Manager. This command is particularly useful for design sets that have similar colors. By using this command you can quickly and easily change all the colors in sets of designs to new colors without having to laboriously change each color individually.

Included with this lesson are three designs that have been generously provided for your personal use by Ananda Smith at Divine Designs.
