Just want to say thank you so much for creating this tool. I love Bayer Matrix dithering texture and love Picoshop for this. Wish there was an undo button but no problem as I understand the limitation of Pico8. I wish in the future if Picoshop can be a little more advance with an undo feature, able to do simple animation like I saw in one of your cart, a person walking by the factory. Amazing work and thanks!
