The size of pixel is determined by the size of face in the picture. You can change the size(position) of pixel only in the Auto Detect window.

Underwhelming at best.
Scott Jon Siegel

I paid for this app after seeing mentioned on Jason Kottke's website. Despite the example pictures, the app and its interface do a poor job of converting real peeps into believable pixels. Good results seem to mostly be a matter of luck. The interface is clunky and the "face detection" seems surprisingly poor at detecting faces. Buyer beware.

Needs work

Good start, but needs the ability to work with pictures that have already been taken. Could also use the ability to set brush sizes.

Needs more tools to be worth the purchase

Downloaded the app on a whim. It's a bit sparse in terms of content. You can take a photo in app or import from photos, then it uses an auto face detect to interpret what you want to pixelate. Using that it draws a general curve of what it'll pixelate then lets you use a brush to change the area of the mask, then it pixelates. Things I would want: easier method to change brush size, ability to change density of pixelation, ability to move the zoom in on picture without effecting the mask Pretty gimmicky for $3 but maybe I'll find more do with it if I play around with it some

A great app for pixelation!!!

This is one of the coolest apps you can find from App store. It's very simple way to change your normal pix to cool one, it has an auto (face) detection function, so you can simply click/adjust the part of picture you would like to pixelated! I like it!!! :)

The best I've seen!

Does just what is advertised. I've used it several times and every time it has created a great pixel art version of anything whether it's a portrait or a scenery picture it works great! The color palettes used are especially gorgeous. I really hope this app grows and continues to update because it is already so great!

Great app!

I really have a good time playing around with this app!!

Perfect app! ?

I'm an artist and sometimes I make pixel art. I use this sometimes to help me practice. Plus I love it in general! It's so much fun to take a family photo and pixelate it! Best app I have gotten in a while.

Do Not Buy

Waste of money. The point is to make it look cool, not unrecognizable! I think complete morons designed this app.

Pretty cool

Used it to make a profile picture. It works very well, and is lots of fun. Definitely recommend it! :D
