"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.

Fantastic App

I’ve always wanted to make sprites, even animated ones, and this app hits pretty much every nail on the head in this regard. You can also save the sprites as images, including animated gifs to your phone/tablet, which makes it even better.

If I have one gripe, it’s that the “Copy Color” option to transfer a specific color to all other animation frames doesn’t work, forcing me to have to manually change the color of each unique sprite in said animation. Not the worst thing in the world, but makes things a tad more tedious; an update to fix this would take this app from being excellent to perfect.

Best I’ve Found!

LOVE this app! So many customizable features from grid size to unlimited colors to so much more. And I just found the animate feature which is really cool and fun to play with. Three things that I have not found that I would love to see: 1) A Color Counter: so when doing beading type crafts I know how many of each color I need. 2) A Redo Button: the undo button is so useful but it would be nice to redo an accidental undo. 3) Landscape Rotation: would be nice for landscape type projects.

Would absolutely give 5 Stars if #1 (Color Counter) was added.

My favorite feature of this app, is the animation. I never use this app for anything but animating and I know this app is mainly for making pixel ART not pixel animation but I still love how easy it is to get to! But the ONLY bad thing about this app, is that when you import a photo of a dark body color and it has pretty dark eyes (Like a Black Cat) you can’t see its eyes and you have to draw in your own, which could look good, but not in my case! Other than that- you should get this app, it’s totally worth it!
