About Perler

Perler helps you turn images into a fuse bead-friendly template. It rotates, crops, shrinks, reduces the number of colors and much more. The program links together image filters in a "chain", letting you configure all the filters and see the end result on-the-fly.

There are built-in palettes for Hama, Nabbi and Perler Beads. Just check the colors you have available!
