PixelPaint is a pixel-based image editor application by Pixel Resources, Inc., a Norcross, GA based company, and distributed by SuperMac Technology, no longer maintained, for the Macintosh series of computers.

It was one of several full-color paint applications for the Macintosh II. The very first was Modern Artist, developed in conjunction with Reed College, Portland Oregon and Computer Friends, also based in Portland, Oregon. [1][2] [3]

Jerry Harris, co-creator of PixelPaint, subsequently became an executive for Adobe Systems.

Reception[edit]

BYTE in 1989 listed PixelPaint as among the "Distinction" winners of the BYTE Awards, stating that it "helped establish the Mac II ... as a tool for serious graphic art".[4]
