Israel is under a brutal attack from Gaza. Hundreds of innocent civilians were murdered, kidnapped and tortured. Stand with Israel.
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!
The personal version is used to evaluate the software before purchasing, or for non commercial, non-profit projects.
You may not use the personal version for anything commercial.
If you need to use Pixelator commercially, please purchase the commercial version.
Note: you may use the commercial version for any commercial project, but you cannot provide Pixelator as a service. For example, you may not create a site that allow users to upload images and pixelate them with Pixelator as your backend. You may only use it for your own assets and media files.
To support young aspiring devs, this app is free for anyone under 18. If you are under 18 please feel free to use the free version commercially.

hey really cool software.....i just donated you 2 dollar, sorry cant afford more but is it possible that i later pay the missing 23 to obtain the commercial edition, as i really think this is the best pixelation tool on itch ! thumbs up
hi man if you can't afford it just use it for free no worries about it! To be clear- including commercial.
thank you soo much :) but i promise to come back @ you donating more once i can, this software really deserves it <3
Is there a 32-bit version, My PC recently got corrupted and I have been having problems upgrading it to 64-bit . so I thought I'd stick with 32-bit for a while. so if there is a 32-bit version please let me, otherwise no need to
HeyHo. Just got your tool and wanna say it´s amazing. Gonna use it a lot!
And a good work must be paid! So I did :P
Hi, great program, how do get commercial licence, not sure how it works. Thanks
Hello! Imagine, I have used your tool for commercial. How do you found me?
You forgot to add "asking for a friend" to sound less suspicious :D
Don't worry I couldn't care less if people pirate this software and I'll make no attempt hunting you down if you do.
Ofc I prefer to get paid, but truth is preventing piracy just doesn't worth the time and effort for a private individual like me.
So do whatever you feel is right. I will never know. But you will always live in fear that maybe I lied.
i might just be dumb, but i can't seem to make the game run at all. let me know if you want more information to help me please.
Hey bro, I'm under 18 and I was just wondering, how do you do make it commercial? You can't install the commercial version first if you don't have the money, but I'll try.
Nice, bit too body focused IMO but sure everything has its flaws and that's not exactly a big one.
.. Linux sometime? <3
There are mac and linux versions but they are super old and not maintained anymore, if you manage to make it work feel free to use it (don't buy a license since its not supported version)
Thanks for a great tool!
this is just the coolest thing since we found out about fire! I'm going to be using this to create doom enemies!
Great tool, Thanks!
Updated MacOS version, please?
You could make the MacOS version paid only (meaning there's no personal edition). This would give you an incentive to port the new version to Mac and Mac users would be more than happy to pay for this awesome product.
Second this. Right now I have the old mac version with no way to upgrade the license
make a mobile version
Hello, im very gratefull about people less than 18 years can use free the comercial version but my game will be ready after i reach my 18, i still can use commercialy arts previously generated for free? Please say yes :(
Hey, quick question. I previously purchased your Pixelator from the site (now you moved to itch.io) and the version I have reads as 1.06 and claims it is up to date when I check the update button -> but this version is 1.08. Where there any meaningful changes between 1.06 and 1.08 that should warrant an upgrade?
On a side note - this is a really cool tool you made. I used it a ton for hobby projects and it's extremely fun to change a basic 3D model into 2D pixel sprites.
You have earned my respect for your actions in letting this be free commercially for devs under 18. I'm 14 and trying to get into gamedev. This helps a lot. :)
Will this be developed further with new features ?
Just a question... If I download personal version just for some tries and comparisons and after a while I decide I want to use its output commercially, can I just buy a license and use them, or I will have to redo them? (Sorry if its a stupid question, im quite a newbie developer)
I am quite Impressed with this.
This is great! Is it possible to not get an "old school" color palette, but instead keep all exact colors shadesfrom the original image?
neat software. too bad i didnt find it last year lol
This looks incredibly cool! Are you using your own magic sauce or a published algorithm? I'm interested in the topic and this looks pretty good
Thanks! I use my own algorithms. It's not ML or AI or anything like that just good old pixels manipulation ;)
The auto color palettes though isn't mine, that's part of the PIL library.
where the hell is buy license ?
I'm still 17 sooo yay
Thanks so much for providing this for free to people under 18. I just turned 19 but I've been using this program for a really long time, it's fantastic! I'll be buying a license soon! :)
When I export pixel img it is too small size. where can I change the resolution? I need HD size pixel img
result image can either be the size of the input image or smaller (there's a checkbox to determine that) but can't be larger.
If you need to just scale up the image you can use any photo editing software to scale it, just make sure you use nearest neighbor filtering so it won't get blurry, and that you increase size in round factors so that pixels will duplicate evenly. But if you do that - ask yourself first if you really need the source image larger and not just scale it in runtime in whatever platform you present the image on?
If you need to scale up the image with actually adding more details to it, and not just duplicate pixels, that's something Pixelator can't do. Adding details to scale up image is a whole different thing and usually involves ML
Wish there was a Mac os version :(
Long shot: does this program convert to the Chrono Trigger - Trials of Mana style?
hey! Can i use the personal version for game jasms
well thanks and wow ..i never knew being young in game dev would be helpful am 17 and love to u #TheMobKIng I hope you join my dev log sooner on
Love u becauz i am under 18 can use this commercially for free
This program is fantastic and is worth way more than $25. Thanks for this awesome tool and for your kindness RonenNess :)
Thank you for the program I've been looking for for 2 years
I have this error with the preview and i don't know what to do
I'm also having this issue.
Hi SrBys, the path seems a bit weird, can you paste the full path that contains "Pixelator.exe"? ie where you extracted it? And also do you see a '_pixelator_cmd.exe' in it?
Do we have to buy the $25 license to not have the obtrusive watermark, even if we have no commercial use?
There shouldn't be watermark in the free version, unless you removed the LICENSE file or executing the exe from external folder.
The pixelation of some special pictures is perfect! This is epic software!
Hello, I downloaded the program but each time I try to open the program and I double click Pixelator.exe and it gives me an error, and it says redownloading helps, I tried redownloading it several times and it still gives the exact same error message I put a link to the error message. Please help if you know what the problem is, thanks!
