PiXXL is yet another titler, albeit a special one: it lets you draw your own cute blocky, pixely, colorful 16x16 icon.
- 16x16 pixel icon you can draw yourself
- 8 customizable colors
- Upload existing images
- Download your own creations
How To Use
Attach the PiXXL Titler object.
It is in an invisible object that will attach to your skull by default.
Your drawing will appear above it as a floating text (like a "regular" titler, except that it will use block graphics to display a pixely icon).
To draw your icon, attach the PiXXL HUD.
It uses a web interface displayed via Shared Media. If the user interface
doesn't load automatically, hover over the HUD until the viewer's web
toolbar appears, and click its "Home" button.
The left pane contains the colors and action buttons (clear canvas,
upload image, download image).
The selected color is highlighted by a thick white border.
Click the triangle in the lower right corner of the color pot to change
the color. Note that already drawn pixels in that color will change
their color as well.
Activate the checkerboard color pot to clear pixels.
Draw on the canvas in the usual way.
Your titler will be updated as you draw.
When you upload an image, it will be resized to 16x16 pixels and
quantized to use at most 8 colors (so not every image will result
in a good icon).
You can also open the web interface in a browser. To do that, click
the respective button on the viewer's web toolbar while you're hovering
over the HUD.
You can use this to share your PiXXL URL if a friend would like to
draw your PiXXL icon.
Detach the HUD when you're satisfied with your creation.
