Pixelator is a smart software to convert images into pixel art sprites and cover arts. With Pixelator you can use any source picture to easily generate Pixelated graphics for games or posters.

What is it good for?

Making good pixel art for a game can sometimes be hard, especially when you have limited time and resources. Pixelator help you generate quality pixel-art sprites using the following 3 techniques:

  • Generate: convert real images into pixelated sprites to generate lots of content, and fast.
  • Reuse: turn different art styles into the pixel-art style that match your game, and unlock otherwise unusable resources.
  • Create: paint in your own style of choice and convert it into pixel-art. You no longer need pixel-art skills to create pixel art!


To use this tool commercially you need to purchase a license from:

Doesn't work - or rather does for a while then "Unexpected Error" and won't let me go back so afraid to tweak any paramater.  Too bad, would really help save time turning 3D rendered images into 2D sprites for a game...

The Mac download link doesn't work

i open pixelator, the screen becomes black, and it closes. what can i do?

Hi, I want to buy the Studio license, but I can't pay by paypal. Is there any other way to pay?

No esta para ubuntu 18.04

For some reason Windows version doesn't run. No message, no nothing, I double click and the program doesn't run.

This happened to me. If it will not run while offline but it will run while you are connected try this. This is what he told me to do when it wouldn't work for me.

Open this file :pixelator\resources\app\js\bundle.js with a text editor, and remove line 162, which looks like this:


This will remove any internet usage by Pixelator.

Hope this helps!

Thank you so much for your help. However, this did nothing. :( It still doesn't run at all.

are you running Pixelator.exe? Or one of the other exes in that folder?


Oops... I was running _pixelator_cmd.exe

Hi Xso,

Thank you for the bug report, I tested and it happens when you give names in language other than English, its a common Python-2 related issues... Please try to give your files a name in English, you can rename it later to whatever you like.

Also in the future please email me about issues (the email is on the site), that's the best way to get support.



Thank you. I successfully solved the problem.
