Bead Studio supports palettes with bead colors from all the biggest manufacturers of beads like ARTKAL, HAMA, NABBI, Perler Beads and IKEA PYSSLA. Either choose a single palette or use a combination to increase the number of available colors tremendously. It’s even possible to define your own palette, just choose "Custom palette" as your "Default palette" and then click on "Setup custom palette" in Setup, where you select which beads you have in your inventory from all the known beads.
Bead Studio is made for both the serious fusible bead designer and for small children. It is possible to choose boards with very few pegs for example 10x10, zoom to a level where even the tiniest hands can handle it. It is possible to change the dimensions of the palette making the beads easier to select and it is possible to disable screen rotation so this will not cause irritation and problems for the little ones.
Bead Studio is very versatile. You can make huge boards with up to 500x500 beads or choose tiny boards with dimensions as low as 1x1 beads and you can choose very comprehensive bead palettes like HAMA or very limited palettes like Ikea Pyssla.
The fusible bead design can be shared on facebook, email etc. You can export it to an image with a 1:1 aspect ratio with real beads using it as template for a design in real beads.
Use pinch to zoom and dragging to navigate your way around the board and enable grid under settings providing the best overview when making ones design.
In Bead Studio you can convert your image saved on the Android device or from the built-in camera to photorealistic fusible bead designs using the chosen palette of colors like HAMA. Use the image editor to select a subsection of the image and control contrast, brightness and gamma. Tip: Because the number of ‘pixels’ on a board is often limited when making designs that can be transferred to real beads afterwards it pays to select a smaller section of the image to achieve the best possible results. It can also yield better results if you exaggerate the contrast and brightness of the image before conversion.
* Internet - The app. needs to be able to access the internet to retrieve images located on webstorage like Picasa.
* External Storage - The app. needs to be able to access external storage to save exported designs.
Bead Studio comes in two versions, a paid version called Bead Studio and Bead Studio Free with ads. The only difference are the ads.

Awsome I could make cool certain unrealistic things
Good app for designing and not bad for converting pictures. However, the numbered codes for the Perler brand beads are wrong when zooming in.
Great app! I love this app. Even though image to bead color conversion is a bit wonkey it's a good enough match that I can just fix that stuff myself. I don't see anybody else getting any closer to getting conversion down perfect. Having a grid that represents individual peg boards linked together like the "bead it" app has would make the app a perfect 5 star and purchase worthy to me. Literally the only thing holding me back from purchase.
Pictures won't load The app installed fine but when I select a picture it does nothing but take me back to a blank canvas. From my experience with using the app on a friend's tablet it's pretty nice. Just wish I could make use of it on my own device.
Looks like fun! Trying it out ! We'll see...
I'm loving this app So I've made 3 perler projects from photos and the results are phenomenal. Things I'd like to see a users guide, forum for project tips. Thanks.
New This app would be a 5, but i think it would be cool if they added the new stripe beads, and all of the boards, like hexagon, small and big circle, thi gs like that. I wpuld rate it 4.7 right now but the boards would be a 1,000,000,000,000,000 rating
Solid app One of the better apps if seen. Has the same problem most of these apps have though. The picture conversion is messy at best. would be nice if you could set the picture to come out a certain dimensions of beads by typing it in instead of the slider and pinch zoom. Very nice to have different brands color palettes.
Love it Will be purchasing ad free version. I honestly thought this would suck but it's the best bead app out there . Awesome job. Could we get a tool in which we could just crop a charecter ? Would be awesome !
Can't Stop!!! Ever since I found this app I can't stop using it. I don't even bother playing games on my phone anymore because of it. The stylist on the Galaxy Note phones make it that much easier to use. The only thing I can recommend to make it better, is if it would alphabetize your projects once you save them. Other than that, its AWESOME.
Works well! Just started but this is great so far!
It's cool It's so helpful because now I can make more bead art without worry about using up all my beads. thanks^-^
If you don't have perler beads this is good for you It actually works like real perler beads and has a variety of brands of beads and it has 3 different sizes of pegboards it is so good
Fun and free bead pattern maker..Awesome !!
Good Liked it
Use it now Ive been using this app for 2 years now my deviantart is pattern223 and I love it nothing else like it and only problem is its to blurry in everyone ive made please make it less blurry thank u
Awesome! This app is perfect for even doing my seed beadwork! I love it & the fact that u can make the board larger or smaller! Now I don't have to spend all that time hand-drawing templates! So cool!
Awesome app I've been trying to find something simple that helps me step up my game with the pixel art and this does the job, thank you so much!
Whats the difference between the free version and the 2 dollar one ? The app is amazing just curious if there is a substantial difference in the apps
Transparent backgrounds Is there a way to import a PNG or GIF file that has transparency? I'm finding that when I try importing transparent images, it makes the transparent parts of the image black.
Why Why does it put random greens in there when it doesnt look anywhere near green itd be fine leaving it like the rest of the colors
Great! Very intuitive, fast and easy to use. Would love to see it developed further for craft designers, e.g. select, copy, paste tools. Dev is helpful and responsive to requests.
Awesome stuff I've made 599 patterns in a year extremely recommend app love it
BEST APP EVER !!!!!!!!It is truly amazing Definitely should get it just one little problem. Is it possible to make the perler bead amount smaller plz answer
Good app It's a very good application and worth downloading. but it would be nice that along with the bead count there was a note on the approximate size in inches of the finished product. There might be a setting for this but I haven't found it.
Brilliant! Bought this to do portraits of my kids, works a charm n easy to use. Oh, and buy the upgraded version, support the small developers!
Didn't work Each time I tried to convert a picture it crashed.
I love it when /martin reply to the querris and questions, it is very nice of him.
5 mins of playing with app And it's amazing!! Best app for trying to turn portraits into perler murals!
Ok Y can't I download this app I hear it's good for turning pics into perler patterns so I'm been trying to download this for like 4 days now
Looks fun, but.... Why if i wanna take a pic from photo, its said, ' Unfortunately, Bead Studio Free just stop.' ??
Awesome! I have used this for a while now and it is by far my favourite, I have managed to create much bigger and better designs all thanks to it. As a perler beader myself I recommend it to anyone :)
Worst game ever I couldn't find reset or anything else.
Help Won't stop crashing help fix it plz the ?
This app is a pretty fun way to be productive while out and about. The functionality and UI are simple and intuitive, and I love tapping away with my stylus. This lets me test out patterns before wasting my time actually beading them! Great app, thank you so much for all your hard work! I'm having problems selecting a custom palette. I have followed the instructions here (Create new board, select "custom palette", go into menu and create palette) and it still only gives me "normal" beads. Mostly I'd just like to figure out how to enable the clear ones. right now I'm using grey as a stand in and it's fine. Help me figure out how to get ALL the perler colors in my custom palette and I'll add that last star. In the future, I'd really like to see alternative shaped boards like circles and hexagons. This is not at all a complaint, because this is a great app, it's just a thing I think would make it even more useful as a perler planner!
Amazing! I love that this app is able to do all that it does. From listing the numbers of beads, being able to change the lighting and contrast, and converting pictures into patterns this app really has it all. The only thing is that I wish that the cropping on the picture when converting to a pattern was a bit bigger. Over all outstanding work has been put into this app!
Great Really good and even better when you can copy the design.
Best app I have ever downloaded! This app is incredible! It let's you transfer pictures into all different kinds of hama beads and you can even make your own designs with a personalised colour choice. This has got to be one of the best apps I have ever downloaded!‼♥♥♥ Also, this app helped me with a big design project I have been working on for weeks, it is extremely simple to use and the controls are fantastic! There is nothing not to like about this app.
Not the best app.... I would get a better app. This one is not as good as it looks
Great This app really helped me plan out bead placement. The only thing that could make it better: more than just square boards, maybe like circle, trapezoid, or 6 pointed star? Otherwise this app is a must have!
Pretty sweet app. I just wish there was a desktop version of it. Maybe there is and I just missed it.
Love it Love this app, it helps me make incredible designs. My only suggestion is that after a certain number of beads is on the board Info. It'll go like 320..., if that could be expanded it'd be much appreciated.
I didn't have any problems with this last year, but this year, I'm trying to make an image into beads, and it's not working, am I doing something wrong???
Nice Is there any way to hide the transparent background thats turned to black beads on png images?
Eh ... It works, but the results are not accurate, and often comes out as a mess.
Prefect for what i need This app worked out prefectly for me since we're doing a video game themed wedding and each table is a different game some of the games are hard to find patterns and others i just didn't like i really liked how our cake topper turned out using a pattern made by this app
Amazing Best free perler bead app ever!! I can even convert images!! Just love it!!! <3 <3
Sucks Won't allow me to generate from pictures
Great I love this app. It makes perler beading so much fun!
Good Would be great if I could open the picture on my tablet, it does not even give me the option. It works great on my Samsung phone
Meh. It keeps shutting down... and the screen rotating is annoying. But for free... its ok. It does what it says. Sooo... there ya go. :)
Amazing This game is a fun thng ti do in my free time
Awesome Love this app
SOS I was using this app for a big project and now the custom pallette doesn't work. I tried the paid one and that keeps crashing when I tried to load a new pic. Need some help. Is this just because I have a an older S3?
Real organized It's nice and neat, I can zoom in to match my board.
Great, but could use more features I use this app a lot to play around with ideas so a copy/cut/paste function would be very useful. A 'fill' function, like in Paint, would also be extremely useful.
DON'T DOWNLOAD PAID VERSION I can't stress this highly enough. Do NOT download the paid version. It crashed my phone and corrupted my sd card so badly I lost everything on it and had to trash it. Couldn't even reformat it >:(
Good Would be great if I could open the picture on my tablet, it does not even give me the option. It works great on my Samsung phone
Solid app Such a big help! Sometimes you see a picture that you must turn into bead art and this takes away the most complicated part of it, the outlining. I will say, that the color recommendations are way off but still it doesn't matter since you can just look at the original picture. Thanks a ton!
Amazing I love it so much!
LOVE IT. I love it so much
Update supercrash fast response not only is this my preferred perler program, it's the only one I work with. An update on 07/16/16 sent this program to a screeching halt for me but the developer quickly fixed the bugs. Huge kudos to the creator! I have not found a better pattern maker than BSF. Back to perler for me! Wheee! \○/
Fast response when update crashed Amazing developers who fixed it super fast! Love this app and look forward to all future improvements.
It keeps crashing It worked great for one night and now everytime I try to open it, it says "(name of app) has stopped..." I can't even get it to open anymore. Help please.
Photo converter isn't very good When I tried to make a pattern for an animated picture of my charizard, it wanted me to use a bunch of purple and blue in areas that were clearly orange in the original picture. Is nice for planning out patterns but not for making new ones from photos.
Very useful! Have had this app for a while and it's a great and simple asset to designing beaded jewelry effortlessly. I Simply set the board size decide on the design print it and keep the printed sheet or phone next to my beading loom as i work. Love it. Thanks! !!☺??
DON'T DOWNLOAD PAID VERSION I can't stress this highly enough. Do NOT download the paid version. It crashed my phone and corrupted my sd card so badly I lost everything on it and had to trash it. Couldn't even reformat it >:( 5-19 update, my sd card was not faulty and there was no virus. My phone worked just fine until I installed that particular app....my review stands. This is the only app that has ever caused me a problem.
Please add all the new Perler colors Light grey, light lavender and such
Thanks but keep going! The app is great but would be greatly improved by adding an option to change all of a certain color bead at one time instead of having to individually modify each bead. A area selection tool could be used to optimise this feature. Thanks for all your hard work.
Seems nice but it keeps crashing I just downloaded this to help with a few projects. Unfortunately it keeps crashing every time I hit 'share', 'save', or 'load'. Looks like it's back to pen and paper for me.
Yeeee It has so far been a wonderful app (: very helpful when making some projects for my business
