Buggy and Not Worth $60 =(

I was really excited to get back into Pixelmator but at $60 dollars I was not that excited at all. I use Paint Shop Pro in a Virtual Machine for my design and everything I do day to day but I wanted to try and run native Mac tools. The Original Pixelmator is so limited compared to PSP and anything else besides Photoshop so when I seen Pixelmator Pro come out I was like ok, maybe it has tons of more features. I didn’t like it at all and after one hour I was already asking for a refund =( I tend to not leave reviews Negative but I think people intersted in buying this software should be aware for the professional I really don’t think this softwrae is up to it and mayeb one day it might but not today and at the price. Honestly you can buy PSP for $70 usually on sale and run it in a virtual machine.


The latest update 1.0.4 was a bug fix and stability release, but it introduced more instabilities and bugs! In the latest update, copy/paste leaves image fragments in the image under edit from images edited in a previous session! And, the product freezes and crashes often.

Is this product by the same team who built Pixelmator? The new User Interface is not as easy to use as the old UI, and the image work area shifts around as UI elements appear/disappear making it frustrating to work with multiple images.

I’m going back to Pixelmator. I’ll keep checking for updates on Pixelmator Pro, but I can’t believe I wasted my money on it in good faith having been so happy with Pixelmator.


I’ve been a user of Pixelmator for years.I know you guys are still working on this app, but it’s buggy. I will be using the healing tool then all of a sudden the picture goes black just shows a yellow line where I was editing. Then I have to quit and start it up again until it does it again. Sometimes, it just quits and I have to restart.

ALSO…THIS APP DOES NOT SUPPORT NIKON RAW FILES (NEF)! ARE YOU KIDDING ME…… NOT VERY PRO. WILL YOU EVER CHANGE THIS PIXELMATOR? Most consumers will just fine with cheaper version of Pixelmator. It will do everything you need it to do without spending $60.
