"Pixel Art Maker" is a drawing tool for pixel art like a retro game.

◇ Easy to use
You can draw a pixel art soon after Launching the app.

◇ Import a photo
Pixelate a photo.

◇ Create an animated pixel art.
Draw one pixel art, copy it, and then you can draw an animation.

• Draw a pixel art of 8x8〜256x256 pixel size.
(I recommend 16x16 or 32x32 pixel size.)
• Change Color pallet(limited to 32 colors).
• Zoom the picture to draw.
(you can pinch in and out your pixel art with your two fingers.)
• Load and save drawing data.
• Load your photo from Photos.
• Export a pixel art with a transparent color.
• Enlarge the image up to 2048x2048 to export.
• Save your picture to Photos.
• Send the picture to another app.
• Export animated gif file
(If the canvas size is 128 x 128 or less, an animation is up to 256 frames. For larger sizes, it is up to 64 frames. )
* An animated gif file is saved in Photos, But it is not animated on Photos.

* Permission for twitter is needed when you tweet an animated gif and the permission is used only when you tweet your animated gif.

• Finger Mode
Mode Finger is a default mode. Draw points with your finger directly on the screen.
• Cursor mode
 Move your finger on the screen to move the cursor and press the "PIXEL" button to draw a point.
 Push "Menu" -> "Settings" -> "Change Drawing Mode" button to switch to cursor mode.

Thank you!

This is literally the best pixel art platform on the app store, its got minimal ads, an easy to navigate platform, an easy to use interface, and almost an infinite amount of possibilities. I love the animation feature and the import feature works well (with a little bit of help),

thank you so much for making this!

Less is more

Been using this app since 2015. Easily one of the simplest, most effective pixel art creation apps on iOS. However, I think it could be improved.
For one, certain features don’t work as expected. The “copy color” option in the animation view doesn’t work, and importing JPEG images locks the colours to an extremely limited palette.
Other additions I’d really like to see include a “cutter” tool to select and move around pixels, a “drag and drop” palette for easy organisation, and auto save function and better file organisation, with file names and possibly integration with Apple’s Files app.

Fantastic, but still needs some improvements

This app is great, but navigating through it is a bit of a nightmare. It would be good if when you started the app it would ask what image you want to work on, or if you wanted to start a new artwork, instead of sending you to a new piece right away. It all feels a little bit flat if you know what I mean. If you look at the Ibis Paint X app (free download) that’s kinda what I’m looking for. Apart from that it’s great! The animations part is absolutely phenomenal! Wouldn’t change anything else if I could.
