I am still learning but so far it is very good, just what I need

Wonderful Software

By: Andrea on 23 March 2020
I started off a few months ago with the free Embrilliance Express and really liked what it could do so I purchased this module. I was able to add lettering to purchased designs, do layouts and check what the stitch-out would look like before I tried it on the machine. I do a layout of every design with this SW to make sure it's oriented correctly and also reduce colour changes (with colour sort). MANY good videos and tutorials online for this Software.

Embrilliance is Brilliant

I have had this program for many years, the company backs its customers , always striving to make it easier and usable.. it has evolved over many versions and I love its also Mac friendly' This program has been a great backup to view and utilise designs- it has so many simple tutorials you can access via U-tube on how to, Cannot say how good this company has been in keeping things simple and works beautifully. Brian Bailey and the team have been available to answer any questions and provide advice. Can not go wrong with this and any add ons - I have a few different add ons from fonts' density repair, alpha tricks... all work brilliantly and do what they claim with ease.
