A great app, unstable version
Great app, big thank you to the development team.
Although it has been incredibly unstable since the last update (3.7). Not useable as of the moment for me. Lags, then crashes. Espeically when there’s a selection and I zoom in. I’m also experiencing window flickering (the app’s windows rapidly appear and then disappear). Hopefully a fix is on the way, because the app has been working excellently before this most recent update.
I’m using Pixelmator 3.7 on a retina MBP from 2013. Running on High Sierra.
This is not Photoshop, nor do I wish it was. It’s great at what it does and it does it well. It’s not too complicated to do basic editing of photos and have some fun playing with effects. I’m very pleased. Though, buying from the App Store, is the purchase only good for one release? I just bought 3.6 this Summer and 3.7 is out. Is there any kind of upgrade?
No “Rental Fees”
You get what you pay for. What you pay for is an awesome image editor! This company and thier business model (as opposed to Adobe’s never ending reoccurring costs), is one that is worth supporting. You will not be dissapointed in this app!
