11/23/2016 | Version : 3.6 | Size : 54.9 MB
Pixelmator 3.6 Cordillera brings full support for macOS Sierra and the all-new MacBook Pro Touch Bar, adds Tabs, includes a content-aware Smart Refine feature, Deep Images support, and more.

• Pixelmator is now fully compatible with macOS Sierra.
• The Touch Bar keeps your favorite Pixelmator tools and the most useful options always at hand.
• Use Tabs to easily manage your Pixelmator windows.
• The new Smart Refine feature lets you instantly improve selections with stunning accuracy and speed.
• Support for Deep Images makes colors in 16-bit images more vibrant and true-to-life on Wide Color displays.

Touch Bar:
• Set the most useful tool options for your selected tool right in the Touch Bar.
• The Touch Bar is customizable, so you can choose exactly which tools you’d like to keep in it.
• Use the Touch Bar to change color, alignment, and other text properties.
• When previewing effects or adjustments, a Show Original button lets you take a peek at the original image.
• Use Rotate and Scale sliders to transform layers.
• And do a lot more!

• Quickly drag and drop layers between documents in different tabs.
• Merge all your Pixelmator windows into a single one by choosing Window > Merge All Windows.
• Close all tabs except the current one by Option-clicking the Close button of the tab you’re in.
• New images open in a new tab according to your preferences in System Preferences > Dock – either Always, In Full Screen Only, or Manually.
• If your tab preferences are set to In Full Screen Only or Manually, hold down the Option key when opening or creating new documents to open them in a new tab.

New features and other gems in macOS Sierra:
• With support for the Universal Clipboard, you can now seamlessly copy images and text between Pixelmator on your Mac and iOS devices.
• Precisely align windows and palettes by moving them close to each other.
• Double-click the edge of a window to automatically expand that edge.

Smart Refine and Refine Selection:
• Using an advanced edge-detection algorithm, Smart Refine precisely snaps your existing selection to object edges in your image.
• Customize just how edge-sensitive Smart Refine is using the Edge Detection slider in the Refine Selection dialog.
• You can now edit your selection while the Refine Selection dialog is open – paint to subtract from your selection, hold down the Option key and paint to add to your selection.
• Use the [ and ] keys to change the size of the selection brush.

Deep Images:
• With support for P3 color and Wide Color displays, all 16-bit images on the new MacBook Pro, iMac with Retina 4K display, and iMac with Retina 5K display look more vibrant and true to life.
• 16-bit images also look better on standard displays, as dithering is applied to subtly smooth gradients and remove visible banding.
• Dithering is also applied when reducing the color depth of an image from 16 bits to 8 bits.

Quick Selection improvements:
• The Quick Selection Tool now has a live preview.
• It’s also much faster, thanks to a faster algorithm.
• And it’s more accurate, too – especially with black and white images.

9/27/2016 | Version : 3.5.1 | Size : 52.4 MB
In this update, we’ve added a number of improvements and bug fixes, including fixes for image exports and the Color Selection, Magic Eraser, and Paint Bucket tools. The update also features stability improvements for the Pixelmator Photos extensions.

• When editing larger images using the Pixelmator Photos extensions, the image would sometimes disappear. Fixed.
• An issue with the Stroke effect meant that images which had text layers with Stroke were being exported darker. Fixed.
• The preview of the Pixelate effect would ignore any active selections and show a preview of the effect over the entire image. Now, the preview will show you exactly what you’ll get after applying the effect.
• Gradients weren’t entirely smooth and they were also slightly transparent at 100% Opacity. Fixed.
• When painting over partly transparent areas using certain Retouching tools, the transparency would be removed. Those areas will now keep their transparency.
• Pixelmator would quit unexpectedly when opening PSD files containing the Color Overlay layer style. Fixed.
• Fixed an issue that caused the app to quit unexpectedly when using the Magic Wand, Paint Bucket, or Magic Eraser on a hidden layer.
• With the Magic Wand, Paint Bucket, and Magic Eraser tools, the edge smoothing algorithm that we added in the previous Pixelmator update wasn’t working as well as it should, so we brought back the previous one for now (but we're working on making it even better).
• When using the Clouds effect, unnecessary horizontal and vertical lines would sometimes appear. Fixed.
• Zooming in the Pixelmator Photos extensions is now faster and smoother.
• The radius slider of the Gaussian Blur effect now uses pixels instead of percent.
• When dragging to export layers from the Layers palette, underscores in the name of the layer would be removed. Fixed.
• On OS X 10.9.5, Pixelmator would quit unexpectedly when exporting images that had many shape or text layers with layer styles. Fixed.

Comments and Ratings for Pixelmator

Bought in a few minutes (3.6)

This app is much more than I intially thought…I’ve tried Photoshop and had previously been pretty well rouneded in Adobe Fireworks…but this…this app takes the cake on ease of use, perfectly built to accomadate how your mind thinks while utilizing tools and searching for the options and tool you want to utilize to help better your image editing skills. I literally used this for no more than 10 minutes…and needed to support the developers for their brilliant work…thank you very much, you guys and your company rock!

Its all I need (3.6)
2/4/2017 10:02:00 AM 5/5 By Festival vendor
My old computers crashed with all my expensive software. I upgraded my system and all my old Photoshop sofware was useless. I looked for the alternatives and this software is all I need. Its easy to use, has all the file extensions I need, reads all my old work, and I can afford it. I don’t like the idea of renting software. This is overwhelming great. Thank You.

Needed an app to replace colors... (3.6)

So I haven’t leveraged all the functions in Pixelmator, I admit it, but I purchased this app for an easy way to replace colors. It’s so close to being great..but that color wheel makes it impossible to select specific colors…so basically I have to find another solution. Bummer.

Great Touch Bar Support, Perfect for a T-Shirt Designer (3.6)

Love the touch bar support, it really helps when designing t-shirts.

I have been a Photoshiop user for years and found the Pixelmator had some things that Phtoshop did not and in many instances found it easire and faster with Pixelmator. There was about a 45 minuete learnijg curve so I felt comfortable and now, it is pretty much my go to program.

In the past, I used Photoshop. I am not a designer by any means but there are times I need a photo editor for certain tasks. I very much appreciate how this desktop version works seemlessly with its iOS companion app. This has covered all the basics, and then some, for me anyways… hard for me to rate it anything less than 5 stars. Keep up the great work/

Buggy (3.6)

Cannot use the extension in photos and the app crashes. Update faster please.

unusable (3.6)
12/16/2016 1:41:00 PM 2/5 By susanthelibrarian
I loved this when it worked but, since I upgraded my operating system, all it does is crash. Beware!

Glad I found this! (3.6)

I started with a “subscription” purchase of Adobe Creative Cloud…and was annoyed at not only the monthly recurring subscription charges to my debit card, but also the number of services and apps that Adobe had running at all times on my laptop. Thus, I cancelled that and went through ten minutes of uninstalling Adobe garbage. I found Pixelmator and feel like I lack for NOTHING! I LOVE PIXELMATOR and it does everything I need and more. THANK YOU! Keep up the great work!!!

A very good App. Not perfect, but very good (3.6)
12/3/2016 7:07:00 PM 4/5 By iflyby77
I have an old hard drive with Adobe Photoshop installed that I purchased years ago that I have kept around because now Adobe wants a monthly subscription. When I use PS it is heavy use for a few days and then I might not open the program for months. After years of lugging the old disk with PS installed on it I decided to purchase Pixlemator after experimenting with the free trial. While it is not PS, it is very usable, does most of what I need, and from other reviews it sounds like it keeps getting better and better. I just reformatted the old drive with PS on it and do not regret doing so.
