The desktop precursor to this app was produced in 2014. It is an application that allows the user to reconfigure the pixels of an image according to specified rules.
That app is not available, but its output images can still be seen on the creator's Instagram(@kunoworldwide). As the app involves removing pixels from their original positions, abandoning their roles, it was named "Pixel Strike."
PXSL is a reimplementation of Pixel Strike for iOS, utilizing the Metal-powered GPU to perform high speed image processing. While retaining the original concept (that is, for each pixel, either replacing its information with another pixel's, or retaining its original information), we have increased the number of modifiable parameters, allowing you to create an even greater variety of image effects. Though the pixels relocated in accordance with your rules clearly stand out from their neighbors, this creates a blur-style visual effect. You needn't only look forward to turning your normal photos into a blurry mess, though. By mathematically combining parameters, you can produce geometric patterns and textile-style effects. The screenshots show only a tiny example of the total possibilities. Please try making your own.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
