Hi, I am looking for a pixel art editor, even a simple one, that would allow me to define an axis of symmetry that would work realtime. In other words, when I draw a pixel on the right side of the axis, it will put the same pixel on the left side as well.

 

I am not an artist and I don't really work with any graphics software, therefore I have little idea whether this exists or maybe even has a name :)

 

Thanks for any ideas.

Cosmigo Pro Motion does that, but it isn't quite perfect.  If you are drawing something 32x32 and you set the axis right in the middle, it will be one pixel off on the other side.  So you'd have to make it 33x32.

 

I'm sure other software can do it as well.  But, in almost any software, you should be able to select, copy, paste, flip, move, to get the duplicate side over.

Thanks both! The smart object looks good. I think the biggest difference between an artist and me is that you can imagine the final product, I can't :)

I have used a web app called Piq with mild success. Since you don't have to sign up to try the app, and you can save the image locally it's not terrible, but it only exports as a bitmap currently. It does have the symmetry you were looking for, might be worth a shot.
