Create Stunning Pixelated Images with Ease: Unleash Your Creativity

If you're looking to add a cool and captivating effect to your photos, pixelation can work wonders. By lowering the resolution of the image or specific parts of it, you can achieve unique visual results. Whether you want to pixelate the background to make foreground objects stand out or pixelate the foreground for a stylish and unconventional look, PhotoScissors makes the process easier than ever before. Follow these three simple steps:

Step 1: Load Image

With PhotoScissors, the background is automatically erased, and you can instantly view the result in the program's right panel.

Next, switch to the Background tab in the right toolbar. To apply the effect to the original background (not the transparent area), select "Background > Original" from the dropdown menu. Then, choose the "Pixelate" filter from the "Effect" dropdown list.
