Pixelated Text Generator 9000™

Smart Zoom: aim at an element with your pointer and zoom. The canvas will center on that
Auto Scroll: The canvas will scroll automatically when nearing an edge while drawing,
selecting, or moving objects around.
Use the Marquee Tool or Magic Wand to
move, cut, copy, and perform various other actions on selected pixels.
Magic Wand selections of less than 50,000 pixels can be moved around the canvas and/or used
as a paintbrush (Mode mode:paint)
Hold Shift to add to your selection, Hit the Broom icon (or ESC)

Bucket-fill and Selection operations will "go through" single-pixel lines connected at
corners (▞️) unless the Connected Corners option is unchecked. This includes transparent
pixels connected this way. Use this option together with the Contiguous option to
select/fill exactly the pixels you need.
Importing Media (The People's Pixelator™)
The pixelization level and size of all Images, Text, or Emojis that you drag or paste onto
the canvas is controlled by the Input Pixel Size slider. This
value is the granularity at which we analyze the input media, and thus is inversely related
to the resolution of imported graphics.
Use the Regenerate Button to change settings and import the last
graphic with updated values.
You can Drag, Open via file dialog, or Paste media onto the canvas
You can drag media to the preview canvas also.
