Qixel HD : Pixel Art Painter

Qixel HD is an iPad app that makes it super-easy for designers, pixel-lovers and retro gamers to make stylised 'qixel art' and share their designs by email, Facebook and Twitter. Qixel is a live art project that encourages people to share their designs on the Qixel Facebook Gallery: facebook.com/qixelgallerySend your qixel art by Email, Twitter and Facebook. Don't forget to post your work on the Qixel Gallery! (Facebook.com/qixelgallery)What can you make with 651 pixels? Qixel is all about creating minimalist images, retro characters and typography with a limited number of pixels and colour palette. Make art or just use it to chill out - it's the digital equivalent of popping bubblewrap! I look forward to see what people do with it. There are some suggestions below to get you started, but it's your software to play with. I look forward to seeing your artwork on the Facebook Qixel gallery! Here's what you can do with Qixel: - Draw pictures with 4 different pixel types: Squares, Circles, Diamonds and Triangles. - The canvas background button flips between black or white. This has a very different effect on your qixels. - Use the darken and lighten buttons to add shade and depth to your art. - The triangle setting has an extra button: Rotation. Try rotating your triangles 90 degrees to make strange patterns and origami-style art. - Use Qixel to make quirky typography. - Write simple messages and greeting cards to send to friends. - Make cool patterns and abstract backgrounds for websites. - Create retro game graphics, and then export frames in stages to make animation. - experiment with colour: great for artists and colour therapy teachers. Saving images: (2 methods) A) The Photo button saves a 1024x768 screenshot to your iPad's camera roll. If there is a problem, it will be due to your iPad's restrictions. Go to Settings > General > Restrictions > Privacy > Photos > Switch Qixel on! B) Hold down the Home button, then quickly press the Power button. This will be a high-resolution, uncompressed image on the iPad Retina. Sending Images: Export screenshots to email, Twitter and Facebook.Note from the developer: If this app proves to be useful and popular, I will update it. If you have ideas for functionality - please leave feedback on the Appstore and a high rating will help me to carry on with the project! Enjoy your qixels :)
