Easy UI Design
Designed with game creators in mind, Pixelbox features customizable UI templates for game start and over screens, level complete, settings, item shops, and more. Each built-in template can easily be customized and edited in less than a minute to create a stunning, responsive UI. The templates also have examples of different design elements that you can use for inspiration to make building out your game’s user interfaces easier. With each premade layout, all you have to do customize.
Import PNG & SVG Images
You’re not limited to just the built-in icons and images library in Pixelbox. There’s also the option to import full PNG & SVG images into the software too. Easily import your game art or any PNG files that you have saved on your computer into the software to edit and resize. With Pixelbox’s advanced tool options like the shape creator, you can customize and add vector graphics into your design as well.
Create Complex Animations
With Pixelbox’s professional editing features, you can also create complex animations. Just drag and drop any PNG animations or files into Pixelbox to edit. Adjust the size, color, and customize. You can choose to create using the thousands of images or shapes available in the software or import your own masterpiece in progress. It’s entirely up to you!
Advanced Alpha Window Control
Adding stunning effects to your designs with layering is simple with Pixelbox’s Alpha Window Control. This unique feature lets you open a separate window in your project that stays within your current frame to help you better organize your design layers. Just click on the layer you want to edit in the outline to tweak the settings and customize. It’s that easy. You can play around the hue, contrast, saturation, blending settings, or add overlays to create cool effects.
It also features auto-split export, which gives you the freedom to export your project combined, split by groups, or separated. If you want to use anything you design in Pixelbox with another program or platform, you can! This graphic design software takes the guesswork out of design with easy to use templates, built-in presets, editing, and exporting options.
