How to turn photos into pixel art with the pixel art converter app

1. [Basics] What is dot art/pixel art processing?

Pixel art is a computer-generated image with such low resolution that the pixels are visible to the naked eye!

This technique is used on the Famicom, which was popular in the 1980s, giving it a retro feel.

In fact, among young people who have no experience with pixel art, the practice of using pixel art converters to lower the resolution of photos is now becoming popular!

In this blog, I’ll show you how to turn images into pixel art using the tools and methods you need.

3. [Practice] How to use the pixel art converter with BeautyPlus

Next, I will show you how to convert images into pixel art using the pixel art converter with BeautyPlus.

 ①Pixel Avatar

Here you can create a front-facing avatar like your profile picture based on the face and hairstyle from a photo you upload!

The eyes, nose, mouth shape, and even hairstyle are all accurately reproduced, so you can really feel the character’s personality!

The background is random and there are many different patterns, so you can enjoy a variety of different atmospheres in just one photo.

  ▼How to use

  (i) Select a photo from “Home” > “Start Editing”

  (ii) Select the pixel art converter from “Edit” > “AI Art” > “Cartoon” > “Pixel Avatar”

  (iii) Wait for a while and it will be output!

 ②Pixel World

Unlike the “Pixel Avatar,” this design is a pixelated version of the pose in the photo.

The result will be like you’ve entered a pixelated game world!

If you look closely, you’ll see that the background has also been pixelated!

 ▼How to use

  (i) Select a photo from “Home” > “Start Editing”

  (ii) Select the pixel art converter from “Edit” > “AI Art” > “Cartoon” > “Pixel World”

③Toy Blocks

This filter makes your photo look pixelated with toy blocks!

If you look closely you can’t really tell, but if you look from a distance you can see which are the eyes and which are the mouth (lol).
