Some explanation:

Pixelation is yet another option for hiding details -- it can be a good option between the low-security of gaussian blurring and the high security (but ugliness) of black-lines, offering a lossy blurring effect where fine details cannot be recovered.

Nice! That will come in handy. Blurring or smudging in PS is messy, and "redacted" black boxes are similarly ugly.

I don't like the grid lines. Why doesn't it just pixelate the selection without adding stupid, ugly grid lines?

Why doesn't user go to options and disable grid if they don't like it?

Because that requires initiative, problem solving skills, and basic logic! You can't expect users to have all of those!





I found Cody in an old Game that Notch, the creator of Minecraft made years ago. Do you think that Nudone will be sued for stealing the likeness?

True facts
It's quite obvious from the context of this post that I did NOT use Screenshot Captor's pixelate SpecialFX to paste Cody into this image and then pixelate him with the gridlines disabled. What would make you even think that?
