Other systems work with photos contrast, and you pick thread colors after the system produces designs; this system is different. Thread colors get selected from a thread palette. These are compared to the photo and layered based on their perceived color, producing smoothly blended designs while achieving exceptional detail.

Using color and not just contrast removes the guesswork, and the system will create designs specifically using your thread colors. The system does the work of matching thread colors to the photo.

The thread colors are similar to paint on a painter's palette. If your image has blue, you'll need a blue. Without that, the system might use a blueish-green, or, if no color is close enough, it might use no color and leave a void. Also, for this reason, choosing not to use the shades it selects can produce unexpected results.

You have more colors in a custom thread palette, and the system will have access to more colors. However, you could also give it fewer colors to create a custom effect.

System thread palettes are complete manufacture sets (except for some fluorescent and variegated).
You can pick your favorite thread manufacturer, let the system use a wide range of colors, and select the ideal threads for your project.

Custom thread palettes can be a mix and match of any system threads.
