Embrilliance Essentials is the core platform of the Embrilliance Software Suite that works brilliantly on Mac OSX 10.5 and later, and PC including Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10 32/64 bit operating systems.

Start with Essentials and then grow your software to suit your needs with feature packed add-ons like Alpha Tricks/Font Mapper, Enthusiast Editing and Density Repair Kit.

It is highly recommended that every embroiderer has access to basic tools to view, manage and customize their embroidery designs. Working with the computer of your choice whether it's a Mac or PC with Windows 10, your embroidery software should be easy to learn, fun and extremely useful. Embrilliance Essentials basically speaks for itself through it's name. It includes all the essential tools that an embroiderer needs to do basic editing of their designs!

With Essentials, you can resize with stitch recalculation! Resize embroidery designs down to 50% and up to 250% of their original size.

Convert an entire design to your favourite thread brand in just a couple of clicks! Change colours in a design one by one, or if you have a DST file without colours and want to see what it looks like with colour, you can do that too! You can even create your own custom palette manually or by importing a formatted CSV file.

In Essentials, you can use an existing applique design and selection position and material colours without allowing the removal of hidden top stitches in overlapping appliques. even while leaving the position and material runs unmodified. Plus, using Embrilliance's patent-pending technology, you can also use the position colour to create a cutting file. Brother ScanNCut and other cutters can use the files Essentials creates.

File formats

Embrilliance Essentials opens and saves to the following file formats:


  • The program can open .ART files, but will not save in the .ART file format.
  • Applique files can be saved as .SVG, .PLT, .FCM (Brother ScanNCut) and .studio (Silhouette).
  • It also includes special features to enable Mac users to write USB devices and floppy disks for use with embroidery machines, including Designer 1.
