Awesome app!

I’ve been using Pixelmator Photo since the first beta, and found it easier to use than other apps such as a Darkroom. Color features are nice and the spot removal is a must have. The overview video is not fake! (Trust me!) The one thing that I’d like is support for Go-Pro’s RAW GPR files.

Thanks for helping us test the beta and thanks for the kind feedback, too! 🙏

Non stop problems

I downloaded this app tonight and found that it has direct access to my files in icloud and can even delete them...
A file or picture deleted still appears on recents folder.
My photo dates from 2016 and it is irrevalent that it keeps on appearing.
Even trying to delete it says the picture is not in my files.
I deleted the application twice and reinstalled,same problem
Tried to reach appstore to have a refund.
Ipad Air latest generation with IOS 12.3.1

This app doesn't do anything special that other free apps offer. I had an issue on where most of pictures won't open. It's not compatible with the new iPad Pro 2019. Tried to reach out and all I got was a bunch of excuses. Waste of my money
