Would be nice to have something like this except it just draws the center point.
Center Image in Aseprite
A downloadable extension for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Center Image is a micro extension for Aseprite that provides an option to move image content precisely to the center of a sprite or selection.
- New submenu - Edit > Center, including new options:
- Center X, with a default keyboard shortcut Alt+Shift+X
- Center Y, with a default keyboard shortcut Alt+Shift+Y
- Center (Weighted)
- Center X (Weighted), with a default keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Alt+Shift+X
- Center Y (Weighted), with a default keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Alt+Shift+Y
- For backwards compatibility, using the extension with Aseprite version lower than v1.3-rc2 will show just Center and Center (Weighted) options under the Edit menu

It’s possible to draw a pixel/point and then center it, producing the same result.
I avoid adding any options that could be achieved in two or three, already available, user actions, I’m worried about overcrowding the menus with too many options. ✌️
incredible how much work this saved me. you are god's strongest soldier
It doesn't work in my Aseprite(1.3-dev)
Does it cause an error? Do the new options appear in the menu? Does clicking on the new options cause any response from the application?
It's a very reliable extension, but while trying to centre an already-centred image (just curious) relative to a selected area, it sometimes crashes Aseprite (I'm using beta 1.3-rc4, so the issue might stem from Aseprite itself).
Still, thanks for all the hard work you put into making these extensions, and I hope you get hired by the Aseprite team someday.
Thanks for reporting the issue, I couldn’t seem to find a scenario that would reproduce this though. Do you have any more information that I could use to try and replicate this?
Hmm, it seems to work fine now (I guess), but here are some steps that might recreate the issue:
- Draw an image and make it asymmetrical.
- Centre the image.
- Repeat step two (continuously if nothing happens).
I still think it has something to do with the beta version of Aseprite because it sometimes crashes unexpectedly.
So I tried replicating the issue by centering the image tens of times in a row with no luck, neither in the stable version nor in the beta.
Are you using some other extensions at the same time by any chance?
The extension is not loading in linux and if i extract it it also not works
Could you provide more information? Does it not install? What version of Aseprite are you using? What error do you get?
Thank you very much
This made my life so much easier, thanks!
Simple and awesome ! Great job
Not really sure why, but right now the tool is just not working? I just got it into aseprite and its showing up just fine, but clicking the center button to activate it (selected area or not) just has no effect. Any conflict with magic pencil or FX? I believe those are also extensions you've made. Any ideas?
From what I tested it shouldn’t clash with any other extension.
It works only on the active cel (or all selected cels), so it could not do anything if you have an empty cel active (or a group selected, as these are not supported yet).
Perhaps a classic restart of Aseprite could help?
Oh my glob! I needed this so much. Thanks for creating such terrific extensions.
I love this! Thank you so much for your awesome extensions!
