Pico Pixel is the name of the image viewer I have wanted to make for a long time. As a 3D graphics developer, there are times when I need to dig deeper into an image and analyze its components. Tools such as Photoshop are great but they were built with artists and designers in mind. What I want from an image viewer is information that is relevant to graphics programmers and get it efficiently. Pico Pixel is my answer to that.
At it’s core, Pico Pixel is an image viewer built on Orion. Therefore, it uses the GPU to render of the UI and perform image processing. At this stage, it only supports a small set of image formats (png, jpeg, bmp), yet my goal is to support formats relevant to 3D graphics such as BCn, HDR, OpenEXR and more.
Although, I built Pico Pixel with graphics programmers needs in mind, I believe that artists and designers will appreciate Pico Pixel for its simplicity, speed and design.
Pico Pixel is built on Windows and a beta release version is coming soon.
