What's New

Version 1.0.9

Pixelmator Pro 1.0.9 includes a number of bug fixes and performance improvements.

• Shapes made up of multiple internal paths, such as certain letters converted into shapes, could not be made editable. Fixed.
• The performance of the color adjustments has been improved — some adjustments should now be up to four times faster.
• Fixed an issue that made it impossible to paint or erase straight lines by Shift-clicking.
• Certain advanced Typography features, such as ligatures and alternate glyphs, were not fully supported. They are now.
• The histogram and sliders of the Colors adjustment are now more accurate — to check out the changes, hold down the Option key to extend the range of the Hue and Brightness sliders.
• Layers duplicated by dragging while pressing and holding the Option key were not immediately snapping to other layers. Fixed.
• Undoing a color profile change in an image with color adjustments was not working correctly. Fixed.
• Pixelmator Pro would sometimes quit unexpectedly when deleting points from a path. Fixed.
• Attempting to cut part of a shape, some text, or a layer group using the shortcut menu in the Layers sidebar would cause the image to be displayed incorrectly — cutting these layers is not possible, so this option is now dimmed.

One thing missing….

Zuurach

The last version of Photoshop I used was CS4. Quit it when Adobe went to their subscription model. I’ve made do with Apple Photos. Tried Affinity Photo and it was ok. Had decided that I would probably settle on Luminar for what I need to do which, as you’ll see, is somewhat specialized. I was a CorelDraw user before I came over from the Dark Side and got an iMac I used it for graphic design and image handling. Doing layouts with images and text was a snap. I’ve never been able to find anything in the Apple app world to replace it until now. I’m an artist and I need something that will handle not only photographic image adjustments, but also images of paintings and drawings, which can be quite difficult to photograph and adjust accurately. I also need to be able to combine photos, art and text into single pieces for promotional and other work and finally, with Pixelmator Pro, I once again have found something that will do everything CorelDraw did and much more. I read through every feature section on the website, sat down, ran through every icon in the side bar, playing with different settings, brushes, etc. Piece of cake. Very intuitive for me. Looking forward to using is as a “painting media” also. The previous version of Pixelmator had just enough function to drive me crazy trying to get it to do what I want. No more. The Pro version rocks.
Just one request…please make it an extension of Photos asap.

When will the product be ready for release?

Today I tried a simple project involing a low-res photo. I just need to cut two objects and swap their placement in the image. I successfully selected, cut, pasted into new layer(s) and flipped their orientation. Out of no where the first layer vanished. When I tride to select all it showed control handles for an invisible object that was in a completely differerent / arbitrary place. The thumbnail for the layer looked correct but there was no data in the main workspace. I verifed the layer order was correct. I verified I had not accidentally activacted a mask. I close the app and reopened —now the thumbnail is also empty. The pixels in the layer appear to be completely gone.

After letting this app collect dust I gave it a chance again. Within minutes I had a vanishing layer. Data loss.

On an aside, even if the app worked flawlessly, the fact that that UI moves around constantly (grows/shrinks depending on chosen tool) means I can’t use this app without feeling a disoriented motoin sickness.

I really like this

So I have used older versions of Photoshop and mainly was using Gimp for photo editing. I really like what Pixelmator has here. Good product. I’m happy with it. For basic fixes and enhancements this works. I tested out Affinity and it just wasn’t intuitive. I find the user interface here works for me.

I would make two suggestions to improve: Autosaving bugs me. I find that I mess around with a photo only to find it has saved to my photos. I then have to go in and revert to original. Big issue when I’m working on something I’ve already altered. Becuase this takes me too far back past other edits. I work around this by only messing with duplicated photos. And secondly I would like to see more auto filters in future updates.
