Yes, it’s the ultimate when it comes to digitizing embroidery designs. The new software for both Pfaff and Husqvarna embroidery sewing machines is 'PREMIER+ ULTRA' 3 versions are available but this is the daddy!!
There are a huge amount of built in designs, frames, fonts, clipart and images ready to learn from or digitize and create your own customised designs. The options are endless; it even has greeting card templates and quilt blocks. In fact it has over 10,000 built in and ready to use designs and images and that’s before you even get to use the different modules within the software (plus 100 special bonus designs).
The main program is split into smaller modules. Each has its individual purpose, for example, Photostitch module would not use the same tools as the Font create module, it gives a cleaner and more tidy look to the windows, making tools easier to find. The software is always being updated and in the last update, I read that the tool icons are a little larger than the previous version, again just to make using PREMIER+ embroidery software more intuitive.
Using ULTRA gives the user the ability to digitize by hand using special tools. This part of the program is called "create" and personally I find it is faster, well may be not faster but I would say more rewarding to digitize designs by hand rather than using the auto digitizing wizards that are available. You can even draw stitches using the "sketch" module! Digitizing selfies would be difficult using the hand tools, however they are a breeze using the photo stitch wizard and they look fantastic when sewn out. These three modules are exclusive to PREMIER+ ULTRA package.
This ULTRA version includes these modules.
