Editors' review

While rather basic, Pixen for Mac includes quite a few distinguishing capabilities for creating pixel art. While this program certainly isn't Paint or Photoshop, it still offers all the expected tools needed for creating pixelated images and animations.

Once installed, Pixen for Mac offers a rather basic interface with all of the tools available in one place. The application allows for using several different backgrounds, including existing image files like photos or wallpapers. It also supports layers allowing for each layer to be edited or removed individually. The standard set of tools will be familiar to most users and includes tools such as pencil, eraser, eyedropper, magic wand, fill, lasso, line, rectangle, ellipse, etc., as well as a color tool. The program also allows for adjustments to the opacity of the pixels. In addition, it also allows users to link images together to make pixelated animations, which is a great function for digital artists. To check on their progress while creating an image, users can click on a Preview button, which opens a window that is easily adjustable in size.

We found the program on the whole fairly easy-to-use and multifunctional. Digital artists and amateurs, alike, who are looking for specific software for creating pixel images may really enjoy playing with the various capabilities of Pixen for Mac.
