What’s New

Version 1.2.4

Pixelmator Pro 1.2.4 features a redesigned Color Balance adjustment, image scaling algorithms, an improved Grain adjustment, two new Automator actions, and more.

New Features
• The Color Balance adjustment has been redesigned and can now be edited using color wheels inspired by those used in the cinema industry to color grade films.
• Along with adjusting the color tints of the shadows, midtones, and highlights, the new Color Balance now includes sliders for adjusting their brightness and saturation as well.
• A Master wheel lets you adjust the Color Balance of an entire image at once.
• Color Balance can also be improved automatically using the ML Fix feature, trained on millions of professional photos.
• When using the Image Size command, you can now choose from three image resizing algorithms — Bilinear, Lanczos, and Nearest Neighbor.
• Bilinear is the standard resizing algorithm, good for most uses.
• Lanczos can preserve small details better when upscaling and downscaling.
• Nearest Neighbor is a popular resizing algorithm for pixel art as it creates​ a blocky look with sharp edges.
• The Grain adjustment has been improved to apply photographic grain more naturally, especially when an image has small details and large grain particles.
• Use two new Automator actions — Scale Images and Trim Images — to batch resize images and batch delete transparent or solid colored areas from the edges of images.

Improvements
• The last used document size now appears as an option in the template chooser.
• The currently active tool will be marked with a checkmark in the Tools menu.
• Dragging a layer from the Layers sidebar onto the export preview without having created any slices will now create a new slice.
• ML Enhance will now be unhighlighted if an adjustment is removed.
• The look of the Curves adjustment has been improved in macOS Mojave.
• All edited curves will now be visible when editing all channels, not just RGB.

Fixes
• The Trim Canvas command will now work better with thin images.
• Fixed a rare crashing issue with rasterizing text layers.
• Fixed various situations where effects ropes were not in sync with the image.
• The thumbnails of empty masks applied to empty layers would not be visible. Fixed.
• On rare occasions, closing a document would make Pixelmator Pro quit unexpectedly. Fixed.

Works Great!

I have been using the app for a few days now and everything is working great. I dowloaded this app to replace Photoshop Elements and I believe is a great replacement. The developer has done a great job and I hope they will keep up with the updates. I finally got away from Photoshop! Thank you so much.

Disappointed.

I was forced to upgrade my old version of Pixelmator to keep it working with the newest MacOS versions. It sure looks fancy and updated, but it plods along at a disappointing pace on my 2012 iMac. Click and wait, click and wait. The final straw is the fact that the app will just stop functioning - I have a need for only the clone stamp for a simple project, and after about 20 minutes of work, it will stop functioning altogether. I can get it to work again on another file, but it will not function again on specific files once it stops working. Very frustrating.

Then, pinch-to-zoom - a very simple IO feature - started having the same issues. I have spent $40 on an app I cannot use, and now I’ll be putting the files I need to modify onto a flash drive and doing the work on my office PC using Paint.net… an app that probably predates the original Pixelmator. You know what? That’s embarrassing. Typing this, I have gone from disappointed to furious. What a waste of my day, and of my money.

Hi Brad, could you email us about this at support@pixelmator.com? The experience you're having seems unusual and we aren't aware of any issues like this in the latest versions of the app. For that reason, we'd love to dig deeper and see what could be going on here!

No light appearance available ! ?

I just bought it because of the light mode but I dont have the choice in preferences
How can I select it if doesnt appear like it is shown in Help ? There is no thumbnail to select in General tab.

Developer Response ,

It sounds like you might be using High Sierra — the light appearance was introduced in Mojave because we redesigned the entire interface to be more native to match the new Dark More, and created a native light look as well. So, if you'd like to use it, you'd simply need to upgrade your macOS to the latest version, macOS Mojave.
