Photos a great addition

Imagine my surprise when, 3/4 of the way through Learn Pixelmator, an update appeared! It was sort of a start-over-so-I-don’t-miss-anything situation, but I have to say it was well worth my time and effort. The greatest addition to the course for me was the inclusion of downloadable photos from the course. I toggled back and forth between Learn Pixelmator 3 and the app itself to be able to see and do all the features. I found this to be extremely valuable in my assimilation of the information. Very well done. I wish there were MacU tutorials for all apps!

Just perfect! Should be included with purchase of Pixelmator

This is a great way to get a quick, yet thorough, overview and understanding of capabilities in Pixelmator. It's would also serve as a good refresher course. I found a number of areas I had neglected to use and would've made my image editing life easier. Noce job!

Best Video Tutorial

If your interested in learning picture editing techniques, go no further. The Mac U has a very thorough video lesson demonstrating every nook and crannie of your software. This includes all his presentations for Aperature, iPhoto and the rest. Best tutorial I’ve come across.
