The end re­sult

The fi­nal com­po­si­tion shows as­pects of all four lay­ers we be­gan with: the shape of the kite and some feather de­tail, the rip­ples of the sea, the clouds and the blood moon can all be picked out. While some com­bi­na­tions of lay­ers and blend modes are more ef­fec­tive than oth­ers, you should never be afraid to ex­per­i­ment – Pix­el­ma­tor, like many other im­age ed­i­tors, sup­ports mul­ti­ple lev­els of Undo, so rolling back less suc­cess­ful ed­its is just a case of press­ing ç+Z. The app can save in all ma­jor im­age file for­mats, and its Save for Web fea­ture al­lows you to keep file sizes down with­out caus­ing too much com­pres­sion dam­age to your files. Ex­port­ing as a JPEG or PNG will flat­ten your lay­ers into one, so to save your lay­ers for later edit­ing use Pix­el­ma­tor’s PXM file for­mat.
