Welcome to the Pixen wiki!

Getting Started with Pixen

You're about to start working with the Mac's best pixel art software. To begin, create a new image.

To create a new image document:

Navigate to File > New Image... (⌘N)

Pixen will prompt you for the document's desired size (don't worry: you can always change it later). Now that you have an empty document at hand, take a look at the Tools palette:

Tools Palette

To begin using a tool, simply click it. All tools operate with simple click-and-drag operation, just as they do in most other graphics applications.

Use the sidebar on the right to navigate through other help topics. A brief tutorial of some of Pixen's unique features can be accessed at any time under Help > Discover Pixen.
