Yes, we all know there are 1,001 photo editors out there to give your snaps a special touch, but there’s one rather neglected field we don’t want to leave out. 8Bit Photo Lab is an app that boasts a wide spectrum of options to turn your pictures into pixel art. Time to get retro with the good old pixel art one-two.
8Bit Photo Lab stands out for how easy it is to use, plus the wide number of features it lets you apply to the image. There are lots of options to edit the images as desired and each of the sections at the bottom part of the screen takes you one of them. The first one gives you access to lots of filters for classic gaming systems: Commodore Pet, GameBoy, Opti4, Apple II, VGA…
You can also fiddle with more typical parameters like the image resolution, contrast, saturation, brightness… But the pixel art features don’t stop there, with further options to change the size of the image pixel, the number of colors in the palette, the pattern for the pixels to follow… Plus you can add a smattering of other random effects to give the image a very special sheen.
8Bit Photo Lab is a very easy to use app that transforms an image of your choosing into gorgeous pixellated love that takes you straight back to the good old days. Though we’ve already mentioned a zillion things you can do with this app, it can also add small animations, pixellated text, or even stickers that pay homage to the days of single-digit bits. Plus it adds even more customization options if you fork out for the Pro version, although the free version is quite comprehensive in the retouching it lets you do.
