Can I also produce panels, i.e. multi-part images, with the DAC?

Multi-part images per se cannot be created with it. However, you can split the desired motif into several parts with a graphics program such as Gimp and then pixel each of them separately.

Why should I use the DAC? There are also other programs for pixelation.

DAC was developed with the help of experienced Pixlers who know exactly what special requirements have to be met in order to transform their own photos and images into diamond paintings. For this purpose, the program uses special routines by Mykola Kovalchuk, who has already developed the cross-stitch program ” Stitch Art Easy “.
In addition, the DAC is completely free!
