      Hi Mary,
      This is quite aN involved and intermediate to advanced software exercise. The lady I featureD in the blog post is pretty accomplished advanced with a few brands of embroidery software.
      Unfortunately it is not something I can address in this forum. However, you could approach your Janome dealer to see if they might offer you a class or one-on-one lessons on this topic. You could also approach Trevor Conquergood at http://www.sunsetstitches.com for assistance. I believe he may be happy to provide you with lessons. I remember Stephanie telling me she had received assistance from Trevor when she digitized those aboriginal design fish cross stitch patterns shown in the blog post. I know it was a challenge for her and took many hours of work until she was satisfied with the results.
      Good luck.

      Liz
