Pixel Software

Post by Zitzabis on Fri Feb 22, 2013 1:00 am

We've recieved many questions about what software to use for pixel art.
Now this varies from artist to artist.

However, for all you Windows users. The recommended software would be either Photoshop or Paint.NET

Photoshop is a paid program.
Paint.NET is not.

So if you want a nice, simple and easy software to create pixel art. Then the recommended software would be Paint.NET
To find this, just Google or Bing it. Easy!
If you're not sure how to use it, then use this tutorial.
Paint.NET guide


As for all you Mac users. This info will be updated shortly.

If you have any suggestions, then just respond below.

Excellent! Do you mind posting a guide on how to enlarge the images while making them pixelated?

Our artworks are to be seen the same way. They may be detestable to others and even ourselves. But we created them and we should cherish them also. It came into being by our hands and it is by our eyes and words that we can deem them beautiful.
