    Tammy,
    Here's the basic steps to use and image with the graph paper:

    1. Go here: http://www.cyberstitchers.com/StitchingTools/GridPaper/index.asp

    2. Click the More Options button

    3. Click the Browse... button to the right of the "Underlay Image" label in the section at the top.

    4. Find an image on your computer using the window that opens and then click Open. Make sure the image ends in a .jpg extension and is under 250kb for best results.

    5. Click the Update button.

    6. Click the "Save" or "Print" icon in the tool bar at the top of the PDF to either save the graph paper to your machine or print the paper.

    For best results, the image should be very close in terms of it's "pixel" dimensions to what you want the final stitch count to be. For example, if you want the pattern to be 100 x 100 stitches, you should upload an image that is about 100 x 100 "pixels". If you need a tool for resizing your images, you can try Picasa: http://picasa.google.com/.
