Description

Qixel HD is an iPad app that makes it super-easy for designers, pixel-lovers and retro gamers to make stylised 'qixel art' and share their designs by email, Facebook and Twitter.

Qixel is a live art project that encourages people to share their designs on the Qixel Facebook Gallery: facebook.com/qixelgallery

Send your qixel art by Email, Twitter and Facebook. Don't forget to post your work on the Qixel Gallery! (Facebook.com/qixelgallery)

What can you make with 651 pixels?

Qixel is all about creating minimalist images, retro characters and typography with a limited number of pixels and colour palette. Make art or just use it to chill out - it's the digital equivalent of popping bubblewrap!

I look forward to see what people do with it. There are some suggestions below to get you started, but it's your software to play with. I look forward to seeing your artwork on the Facebook Qixel gallery!

Here's what you can do with Qixel:

- Draw pictures with 4 different pixel types: Squares, Circles, Diamonds and Triangles.

- The canvas background button flips between black or white. This has a very different effect on your qixels.

- Use the darken and lighten buttons to add shade and depth to your art.

- The triangle setting has an extra button: Rotation. Try rotating your triangles 90 degrees to make strange patterns and origami-style art.

- Use Qixel to make quirky typography.

- Write simple messages and greeting cards to send to friends.

- Make cool patterns and abstract backgrounds for websites.

- Create retro game graphics, and then export frames in stages to make animation.

- experiment with colour: great for artists and colour therapy teachers.



Saving images: (2 methods)

A) The Photo button saves a 1024x768 screenshot to your iPad's camera roll.
If there is a problem, it will be due to your iPad's restrictions. Go to Settings >
General > Restrictions > Privacy > Photos > Switch Qixel on!

B) Hold down the Home button, then quickly press the Power button. This will be a high-resolution, uncompressed image on the iPad Retina.

Sending Images: Export screenshots to email, Twitter and Facebook.


Note from the developer:

If this app proves to be useful and popular, I will update it. If you have ideas for functionality - please leave feedback on the Appstore and a high rating
will help me to carry on with the project!

Enjoy your qixels :)
