This site introduces Pixia and Phierha. 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 Version

New!  Pixia ver. 6.01d

Isao re-tuned the quality of drawing lines.  Now the installer contains two pixia.exe's: one for Windows 7 and the other for Windows 8 / 8.1, tuned to work better on each environment.  The installer will install the appropriate file depending on the environment.   If an older version of ver. 6 exists on the PC, it will be silently uninstalled after the files that contain the customized information by the user are backed up and will be re-written back after the installation of the new version.  (8/10/2014)


Isao will work only on Pixia ver. 6, and Pixia ver. 4 and 5 will no longer be updated

Pixia ver. 6 is the successor of ver. 5, so Isao will now work only on ver. 6.

The current versions of Pixia ver. 5 and 4 will stay for download, because ver. 6 will not support XP or Vista.

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.
