Remove unwanted colors by opt-out color numbers in the color palette.

To get a better idea of the finished result, take a few steps away from the computer screen, see the beads pattern from a distance, or look at the thumbnail in the last step – Save / Print.
Choosing the right photo
How to choose the right photo for your next PhotoPearls project:
Go high-quality; It’s essential to choose a colorful photo to get a good result. Do not use blurry picturesorpictures overexposed with a lot of flash from the camera. For example, do not select a picture of a dog with light fur against a white background. The result is then going to be gray/brown.
For projects with one to four pegboards, select a portrait image or an image with an object. Do not select the pictures with several people standing far apart.
