Tutorial: How to Add Fabric
There are 3 places that you can add fabric from;
The FIRST place is the Main menu, just tap the “add fabric” menu item.
The SECOND is from the stash browser, tap the “+” button on the top right.
The THIRD is from the block customiser, tap the “+” in the fabric wheel to the right.
When adding fabric you will be presented with the Add Fabric Screen.
To chose a fabric tap the camera icon to display the “Resize and Crop” page.
When the Resize and Crop screen is visible, select the Camera button on the top right and choose either;
“Photo Library” – A selection of images that you have added to your device will be available to choose from. Select an image to continue.
“Camera” – You can take a photo of your fabric and save to continue.
After selecting an image, you can use 2 fingers to pinch and pan the image to crop it to the desired size. We recommend that you use images as high quality as possible (512 pixels x 512 pixels recommended minimum) for the best Quiltography experience.
Should you want to chose a different image, just tap the camera icon again on the top right. Once you are once you are happy with your selection, pressing the “Add Fabric” button will confirm your selection and be taken back to the initial “Add Fabric” screen.
Quiltography automatically detects up to 5 of the top colours from your chosen fabric and tags the fabric entry to make it easy to find at a later date. The accuracy of the colour detection can vary depending on the quality of the image. If the detected colour is incorrect or you would like to provide a more accurate colour description, simply tap on the field to edit or remote the tag.
Quiltography offers a “Quick Tag” feature that tracks previous tags used in a given field and offers a suggestion to make tagging fields that bit quicker and easier. In the example below we have started naming the fabric we just selected, all name tags have been filtered based on what we have typed so far, selecting any Quick Tag will override the text in the current field.
We recommend that you add as much information as you can to make finding fabric easier later on down the line. Don’t worry if you can not complete all the fields for now, fabric details can be edited at a later date.
When you are done, tap “Save” on the top right and your fabric will be entered to your database.
To view your new fabric, from the main menu select, “View Stash” to be presented with a grid of all your fabric, including your most recent addition. Select any fabric from this page to display and edit details.
