"Doesn't seem to want to open under OS10.5.8"

July 18, 2011  |  By matthk

 |  Version: Pixen 3.5

Pros

I'd love to use it, if only I could.

Cons

Doesn't want to open under OS10.5.8 I get a 'crossed-out' application icon as if it's a Snow Leopard only application. What gives?

"Better and better"

June 16, 2006  |  By hrv

 |  Version: Pixen 3.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Great interface improvement. The pressure support for graphic tablets and transparency are quite remarkable.
The animation is not already very stable when using layers and the GIF animation export is terribly slow, but a good start for this new feature.

"Wanna do PixelArt? Got OS X? Choose this."

July 16, 2005  |  By scott61

 |  Version: Pixen r2v4

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This application has been very well thought out. It does everything a pixel art editor should and no more. All done in an easy to use aqua interface, and as far as imaging programs go this uses almost no CPU.

"Awesome at what it does."

 |  Version: Pixen r2v3

Summary

This is a great program for when you need to make anything small. I have Photoshop CS on here, but whenever I need to do pixel art, Pixen is what I use.

"Promising"

February 04, 2004  |  By cool_jase

 |  Version: Pixen r1v10

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This program looks very promising. As it gets more features and improves it will become the best way for pixel drawing.

At the moment though, the only reason that i use this rather than photoshop is because photoshop can only do vector lines, instead of just using normal pixels.
Pixen's interface is less clogged up though (compared to photoshop), which enables me to use more of the screen usefully.

Keep up the good work!

"Better"

January 29, 2004  |  By W-Creative

 |  Version: Pixen r1v10

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
r1v10 is better... select all and delete key work.. with ability to save in a few formats. It's much more usable. I'm still not thrilled with the transparency mouse-over feature, but that may just be me.

"uh-uh"

January 22, 2004  |  By W-Creative

 |  Version: Pixen r1v9

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Not very useful here. The transparency indicator flickers based upon mouse position, very annoying behavior. Drop down % list won't stay dropped down long enought o actually use it. Common (and I mean REAL common) commands just dont' work... things liek command-a, and the delete key. Seems like the basics of standard Macintosh applications have been ignored. I deleted it from my drive, it was useless.
