The act of transcribing an image from film to digital as in scanning an image.
An embroidery term for the preparation of a design into a digital format so that it can be stitched out on a modern digital embroidery machine. Also called Punching.
This is the process of taking a design and creating a computerised pattern which will be read by an embroidery machine. It used to be called â€˜punchingâ€(tm) then â€˜tapeâ€(tm), but as technology has moved on itâ€(tm)s now called digitising. A digitised pattern is different from a JPEG or GIF or a scanned image.
