The creation of your Minecraft pixel art image takes place in 4 steps:

  1. Submit a photo that is not too large (Minecraft is limited to 256 blocks in height, 192 from sea level) and indicate the desired dimensions in the end. If your pixel art is meant to be lying horizontally on the ground, theoretically there is no size limit, but think that a 192x192 pixel image will get you to pose almost 37,000 blocks! It is therefore wiser to aim small ... Considering the limited number of colors of the blocks, the rendering is not always very satisfactory. Some photos look better than others, but in general, designs look better than photos.
    Tip: Frame your subject as tight as possible.
  2. Select the orientation you are interested in (horizontal or vertical) then the Minecraft blocks that you think you can have (because some are difficult to find, even impossible to pose yourself in normal mode - if you are in creative mode, the question does not The most common blocks are preselected.
  3. Validate, and the script will offer you a version of your image made up of Minecraft blocks.
  4. All you have to do is patiently place the blocks one by one without making a mistake, using the image that will result from your choices.
  5. To facilitate your task, the names of the blocks are displayed on hover; in addition, you can check off the blocks already placed by clicking on them.

1. Post a picture

  • The image must be in jpg, gif or png format.
  • If possible, resize your image to the same dimensions as the number of blocks you want to place in height and / or width, this with software such as Photoshop or Paint. There are even websites that do this for free online. Otherwise, your image will be resized by a script, with a greater loss of quality than if you had done it using specialized software.
  • Image size is limited to 3MB.

WARNING: the scripts used causing overloading of the server, the images produced are limited to 100x100 pixels (which gives you a maximum of 10,000 blocks to place).

Tip: if you want to make a larger image, you can cut your original into several squares of 100x100 pixels, which you will post one by one directly on the site.

Indicate the height you want to obtain in the end:
Height (in number of blocks): (100 maximum)
Your image (jpg, gif or png):
