Ditisie and calico design software.

It is hard to distinguish with certainty the difference between "ditsie" and "calico" designs.

Calico Design Examples

Well as I said, there is no hard and fast rule for dividing "calico" from "ditsie". For example could the very similar designs below be distinguished as shown?

They both have the same color scheme, and basic form. In fact they were created using the same dialog box in Gliftex, but by moving a couple of sliders you get very different results.

The program has a free demo so you can experiment yourself with creating designs.
