You want these exact four images cropped to square, shrunken down to 29x29 pixels and re-colored for beading into coasters?

If you were willing to double the size and use Hama mini beads, it MIGHT be feasible. But not with regular midi beads and not within the limits of a single 6 inch board.

I put Twilight's cover through my PhotoPearls program, and here's the results:



Note that the colors are restricted to Nabbi's colors, not Perler or Hama.

In regular beads, that picture would be 60 by 90 beads. In mini beads, it would be roughly half the size, about 1 board wide and 1.5 boards tall.

well i was going to do one cover per coaster so each image if not the whole thing part of it so they'll at least know somewhat of what it is....but if i can't do that maybe just this image...

This is the very best I could make it look on a 29x29 arrangement. There are 16 colours and they don't match well with available beads as far as I'm aware, so further compromises would have to be made.

I think you have to buy the software at The Beadery website.

That specific program for PhotoPearls must be purchased at The Beadery, but it's not the only one available. There's also PerlerPal and Bead Art by Big Huge Labs, both of which are available online for free and require no download or installation. And they're both very good.
