If you grew up in the era of Oregon Trail, Galaga, Defender, Blades of Steel, and NBA Jam then you might have a little place in your heart for the nostalgic look of 8 Bit graphics. When your creative juices start mixing with your love of old school games, check out these tools.
64 Yourself - Upload any image under 2 MB and convert it to something that looks like it was made on a Commodore 64.
8BitPhotos.com - Simply upload a picture and let this site convert it for you.
Pixlr - If you want a little more control over how your pixels come out, use the free Photoshop-ish Pixlr. Upload a pic, find the "Pixelate" filter, and tweak until you have it just right.
You can also create from scratch online with Make8BitArt.com (below) or on the BitDraw - Pixel Art Tool for iOS devices and Android. The basketball player above was made on an iPad with that app.
