Changing the Screen Saver Image

The Baby Lock Destiny II gives you the choice to completely personalize your machine. While the BLDYII comes with five screen saver images pre-loaded, you can also choose to use your own pictures as screen savers between stitches. Couple of guidelines. The images must be in JPEG (.jpg) format. No more than 2 MB per image. The file dimension must be 800 wide x 1280 height pixels or less. If you don’t edit it down to that size, the machine will automatically reduce the image to a width of 800 pixels.

To get there, you click the settings button, followed by the general settings button, followed by the arrow at the bottom until you get to page 5 of the settings display, then click the select key in the Screen Saver box.

When you click the select button on the screen saver section, it will initially direct you to the default screen saver images screen.

Now the default images aren’t bad, they are stock images of flowers, Ferris wheel, Chrysanthemum, pond, and laundry. But if you click the customize button right next to it, you get this screen:

You can pick up to five images to customize your screen savers.

When you click which image you want to customize, this screen pops up:

Pick your source…note the delete button is grayed out.

Note that for this, you can plug your USB into the USB port, or the USB Mouse port, and it will work. You can also plug your computer directly in to the machine and import an image from the computer. For this one, I edited the sizes on my computer and used a USB to import them.

Once I click the USB image to designate which port I want the images pull from, the screen changes to a standard file designation screen.

I very cleverly named my folder images, so then I press the images folder:

Note the Return, Set, and Cancel buttons on the screen. Return will back you up one screen, so if you click the wrong folder, you don’t have to back all the way out, just click return to go back to drive path. Cancel will return you to the setting screen 5. For this, I click the image I want in slot 1 and then press the SET key on the right side. Repeat for all or none of the other images. If you just want one screen saver image, you can set just one.

Now, if you decide you don’t like the image you picked, or you just want to change the image, you go back in to your customize screen, and click the customize button next to the image you want to deleted.

Delete button is no longer grayed out.

The pick your port screen displays again, but notice that the delete button under the existing image is no longer grayed out. If you press delete, a confirmation screen will pop up.

Confirm the delete is ok, and it will remove the image. Then you can either select a new image, or click that return button if you want to leave it blank.

And that’s it. Customize your BLDYII with your own choice of screen savers. For the TL; DR, here’s a video of the process. Be warned…even while I voiced over the video, there is still screeching macaw in the background. Because birds are jerks.
