How to Convert JPEGs to PES File

by Dmitriy Richter ; Updated September 28, 2017

JPEG is a commonly used file format for compressed photographic images. The PES file format is mainly associated with the "Brother/Babylock/Bernina Home Embroidery Format" created by Buzz Tools Plus. The PES file contains stitching information and is used by Babylock, Bernina and Brother home embroidery machines. To convert a JPEG image file into a Buzz Tools Embroidery PES file, a conversion program must be used. Several of these are available as free trial downloads online.
