Create a comic worthy of the Sunday newspaper or your favorite pulp-fiction cover.

Pop Dot Comic is a fun way to create comic-book style illustrations from your snapshot or ones taken of your friends and family. Pop Dot Comic applies thick outlines, bold colors, and plenty of benday dots to newsprint or pulp papers to give every creation the look of one that’s been printed or published.

In the past, halftones were tediously inked in by cartoon artists or created in darkrooms. With Pop Dot Comic you can easily and quickly convert your photo into a comic book drawing that’s worthy enough for the Sunday newspaper or your favorite pulp-fiction cover. With a library of included “Fun Stuff”, custom messages can be added to speech bubbles and sound effects will give your creation “POW”. When your finished creating a comic book photo save it to your library or post them to your friends and family for funny moments.

Benday Dots — like those used in the traditional printing process. Benday Dots are two (or more) different small, colored dots combined to create a third color. Back in the day, pulp comic books used Benday Dots in primary colors to inexpensively create the secondary colors such as flesh tone.

Fully adjustable control on all aspects of the process: Dot or Line size, Outline size, Color variation, Border: Width, Inset, Color & Corner Radius.

I am a fan of the jixiPic apps because they provide an opportunity to get creative with my photos. I particulary like this one since I can take a series of snaps and make them into my own comic book starring my firends and family. Instead of the same old boring vacation pix you can make up a crazy adventure book. And you can add captions to the pix. You know you always wanted to let your 382 BFFs on Fb know exactly what your dog is thinking. This app give you lots of choices and works very well. You can do most of the basic editing in iphote then use this app to punch up your masterpiece. Highly recommend this app as well as the other from this developer. Nope they are not paying me.

Works well, but garbage in, garbage out.


I'm very pleased. But recongize this will not work well with EVERY photograph. Not even every GREAT photograph. You'll need something suitable to the task: something fairly simplistic and clear. A photo with lots of different things going on, heavily detailed, without a real center of focus, will just look even worse because of the overdone graphic filters. Remember that your photo must be something that should be in the comics (or a newspaper photo) to look genuine as comics or newspaper.
That said, great variety in satandard settings, so there's plenty of opportunity to fine-tune (or mess up) your creative genius. Easy to use right out the box; I didn't read a word of instruction and dove right in.
If I could add photos, I'd show examples of great and not-so. Sorry, but you're on your own.

Have fun. I am.

Oh, and saving an image? File/save photo. Not that difficult. But did, though increase the file size almost 2fold with no change in image size.

Worth 10 Stars !!!


JixiPix you've done it again! This new app is fantastic, keep 'em coming.

Unlike JixiPix's other apps, this one has an object layer that allows you to place both text balloons as well as emphasis elements (thud, pop, kapow etc.) on top of your images which you can resize or re-position as you choose. Running under Snow Leopard, it purred without a hiccup even after loading massively large files. What a pleasure it was to get this app. My head is spinning with all the possibilities I now have in store for this app.

As I said, keep 'em coming JixiPix.
