What if pixels weren't necessarily supposed to look like little squares and sit in the so-called "right order"? What if what we call "real", "true", "figurative" images were not the only way our World can be represented? What if photographic data was just... data? What if it could be reinterpreted?

Set your own parameters, choose a default pattern or use your own texture file in png format, import some photographic data to process and let the magic happen! Then save the results to a lossless image file on your machine and print images with resolutions up to 8192 by 8192 pixels. No less.

OMG This sort of thing is so rare in the store!!! The purpose here is not productivity… don't expect to get your life in order ;)… it's about generating beauty. It looks like nothing else and wonderful things happen every single time it runs. Well worth a few bucks!!
