Best app. Plz add Transparency Background PLZ!!!


I've tried out several pixel creator apps and I've find this one to be appealing and interesting. However, I do have one gripe and that is when I upload my imported .PNG file, it uploads the transparent background as white background instead of transparent. And the other problem is that when I export the same file, it's background is uploaded as white instead of transparent. And when I loaded the exported file to photoshop, the background is white instead of transparent which it should have been transparent just like how it was saved in photoshop before it was imported to this app.
Please add the transparency option for the image background when importing and allow to save background as transparent instead of white background. Thanks. Other than that, this is by far the best pixel creator out there! So, I'm giving it a 5 star. 👍🏻

I am really glad you like the app! As far as transparent backgrounds go the app supports both importing and exporting transparent backgrounds. If you could shoot me an email at I can verify if it is something odd with the image or you are doing something unexpected.

good app but exporting needs work

Anonymous elf man

when i draw something in the app it looks great and easy to use. but exporting it looks weird and asks you to save at a larger size x1 x2 x3 but the size needs to stay the 32x32 and there is no indication in pixels how big the export will be . its important that it export exact. If I export at x1 it comes out a blurry mess unless sqved to email and its not real friendly saved in camera roll.

It could use some exporting instruction or something.

I am trying out other export options and noticed some improvement using email, but the other issue remains the background is white even though i set it to clear.

Developer Response

Sorry the export appears confusing. The blurry is a misunderstanding on your part though. When you export at 1x the image is exactly the size you made it 32x32 pixels. If you view it in your camera roll it will appear blurry because it is scaling the image up. The camera roll doesn’t use the nearest neighbor algorithm for viewing. If you send it as an email or iMessage you see it is very tiny and super clear. Remember it is pixel art and as such is super tiny. If you want to have the pixelated look and view it in a large image use the scale tool. Hopefully that clears things up for you and now that you understand you find it more enjoyable. If you run into any concerns feel free to email me. My contact info is in the app. *updated response* If you want a clear background you need to save as png. Gif and jpeg are not transparent.

Almost perfect


Love the app. Very easy to use, lots of options, animation is great, imports are easy to work with. It has a few minor issues though. Scrolling to another section is difficult most of the time it decides to just paint that area or select it. I would love if there was like another icon say a cursor or hand that you can select to make navigation easier. Also a redo button to go with the undo and a cut option along side the copy and paste. Final note is I’m working on a massive sprite sheet and the lines of selection box on that is like 3 pixels so it makes working on those sheets difficult. Overall great app.

Developer Response

I am glad you are liking the app. All great feedback and I will look into adding some of that in future updates.
