I have been looking for a sprite editor for quickly creating small
(as in 8x8 to 16x16) pixelated sprites and tiles in a spritesheet. Further, I
wanted one that also works on Android. There are a number of good PC sprite
editors, but they are not tailored to this specific style of spriting. I also
looked for Android apps or online sprite editors, but found they mostly
So, I've made my own. To keep things simple, the editor assumes equally sized
small sprites arranged in a sprite sheet. Editing is based on a single sprite
within the sprite sheet.
- Works on any modern browser, also works well on mobile (tablet). It stores
your image persistently so that it doesn't get lost when reloading the page.
- Sprite sheet based editing
- Data transfer via: load/save PNG, import/export data URLs, Puzzlescript
- Fixed palette, colour pick, colour hex code entry
- Various operations, like flip, rotate, shift, insert/delete row,
add outline, flood fill, merge
- Realtime tiling preview
- Realtime animation preview with pingpong option
- Onion skinning
- Configurable interface colours, edit zoom, preview zoom, onion skin
- Persistent storage will not work in IE if you run the app from a file
rather than a website.
- Firefox sometimes fails to load a data URL or even restore state with a
security exception. Generally this is resolved by reloading it.
