Pixia mascot designed by ASAMI.
This website is to introduce graphic software, Pixia.
The original Japanese Edition of Pixia was created and developed by the author, Isao Maruoka, but has also been aggressively raised by its fans, which makes this software quite unique and different from other tools.
The Help File for ver. 4 is available as a separate installation file. To get better tips for using Pixia, visit users' tutorials linked from the Tutorial page. Sorry helps for ver. 5 and 6 are not available yet.
New! Pixia 64 bit ver. 6.02a
Now 64 bit version of Pixia is out. It runs only on 64 bit environment of Windows 8 / 8.1 / 10
so cannot be installed on Windows 7 or any 32bit versions of Windows, but it operates much faster than
This is, however, a sort of experiment, since it does not contain all the filters 32bit Pixia has, nor does TWAIN work properly yet.
Also, please note that 32bit filters will not work with this 64bit program, so importing the filters from 32bit Pixia may lead to malfunctioning. (17 Oct. 2015)

Updated: Pixia ver. 5 is merged into ver. 6.
Pixia ver. 5 has discontinued since now ver. 6 has taken over all the functions ver. 5 had.
To Windows Vista, 7 and 8 users who are having a fatal error problem using Pixia or Phierha:
It may be due to the privilege given to the installation folder. Try right-clicking "dirset.exe" in the folder, and choose "Run as Administrator" just once. This might solve the problem. The current installers of English Editions are now equipped with a new function to reduce the possible occurrence of the problem.
To those having a crash handling PXA and/or JPEG format:
It may be due to the incompatibility between the exif information contained in the new version and that in the older versions. If you encounter problems handling the file saved by older versions or the files from digital cameras, please delete the exif information by [View]-[Delete Exif Information] and check if the program can handle the file correctly.
