Pixton for Fun



 Pixton for Fun will be shutting down permanently this December 31, 2020. This was not our decision but due to the fact Flash Player will no longer be supported by any of the major web browsers. Read the official statement by Adobe here https://www.adobe.com/ca/products/flashplayer/end-of-life.html


We have enabled Pixton+ features and the ability to download your comics for everyone from now until December 31st. 


As many of you may know, we have been developing a Flash free version of Pixton for the last 2 years. Our best suggestion for a replacement is Pixton Solo. While it may not contain every feature you have come to know in Classic Pixton we are constantly developing new features for it. 



Please note your existing Pixton for Fun account WILL NOT work in this new version. You will have to create a new account.
