Oi, you can do this in paint.net too, which is a free program.

Hmmm... This does help me very much! But is there a way to resize a 100x100 px image to a 50x50 without loosing quality~?

It's not possible to retain quality after shrinking stuff... Pixels that are one pixel big will be shrunken to less than a pixel big and the area will be replaced with a general idea of its original shape and color.

you can also do in mspaint by selecting and using ctrl + on numpad (or onscreen keyboard if you don't have a numpad)

Question: What program do you use to make pixel art?
Reply
:iconfirstfear:

personally? Photoshop 7.0 normally. In general though any paint program with a pencil tool :)

I know that there are free programs out there like gimp or Paint.NET that are capable of it but people use many different programs ^^. It's kind of down to taste of workspace i guess.

This method works for pixel gifs too! :D You just have to make sure you use a photoshop that supports animation layers -- which I think is Photoshop CS5 and up.

it doesn't work for me, it changed the pixel shape and made it all awkward ._.Screen Shot 2014-01-26 at 2.13.50 AM by HimeJim

I'd say the pixels are pretty damn crisp still. No blurred or spread pixels everywhere. Which is what the tutorial is going for Sweating a little...
