What's New in Version 3.5.1
In this update, we’ve added a number of improvements and bug fixes, including fixes for image exports and the Color Selection, Magic Eraser, and Paint Bucket tools. The update also features stability improvements for the Pixelmator Photos extensions.
• When editing larger images using the Pixelmator Photos extensions, the image would sometimes disappear. Fixed.
• An issue with the Stroke effect meant that images which had text layers with Stroke were being exported darker. Fixed.
• The preview of the Pixelate effect would ignore any active selections and show a preview of the effect over the entire image. Now, the preview will show you exactly what you’ll get after applying the effect.
• Gradients weren’t entirely smooth and they were also slightly transparent at 100% Opacity. Fixed.
• When painting over partly transparent areas using certain Retouching tools, the transparency would be removed. Those areas will now keep their transparency.
• Pixelmator would quit unexpectedly when opening PSD files containing the Color Overlay layer style. Fixed.
• Fixed an issue that caused the app to quit unexpectedly when using the Magic Wand, Paint Bucket, or Magic Eraser on a hidden layer.
• With the Magic Wand, Paint Bucket, and Magic Eraser tools, the edge smoothing algorithm that we added in the previous Pixelmator update wasn’t working as well as it should, so we brought back the previous one for now (but we're working on making it even better).
• When using the Clouds effect, unnecessary horizontal and vertical lines would sometimes appear. Fixed.
• Zooming in the Pixelmator Photos extensions is now faster and smoother.
• The radius slider of the Gaussian Blur effect now uses pixels instead of percent.
• When dragging to export layers from the Layers palette, underscores in the name of the layer would be removed. Fixed.
• On OS X 10.9.5, Pixelmator would quit unexpectedly when exporting images that had many shape or text layers with layer styles. Fixed.
Totally floored by the new update
UPDATE : Just wanted to say thank you to the developers for the continued support. I use Pixelmator to produce the album art for my weekly podcast, create graphics for my website and plenty of other small projects and it is always rock solid and speedy on my 2012 MacBook Pro. I still can’t believe the amount of value I’ve gotten out of the purchase. Truly awesome.
Wow.. wow.. and wow. Just wow. The new 2.2 "Blueberry" update is truly incredible. I love the new shapes / text-to-shape capabilities. To be honest, when I read about the update I didn't expect the new features to be implemented as well as they are.. for a $15 app?? No way! But boy was I surprised. Blown away, in fact. Pixelmator has just become my one-stop-shop for logo, icon, splash-screen and web graphics creation.
If you're in need of Photoshop-like capabilities on your Mac at an incredible price, look no further. For $15 this app is the biggest steal on the Mac App Store.
Awesome App for both work & play!!
Pixelmator has been an incredible tool for me. Its fairly easy to learn..& if you have any questions; Pixelmator Support is the best! I use this app daily. I cant wait for more from this company!!!! Its 100% worth buying!!!
Impossible UI for older folks. Dark design makes it useless.
Cannot recommend this app, in spite of its reputation. The dark design and tiny UI decisions make it annoying and impossible to use for those of us who are slightly older. It baffles me that this app has not, after **years of similar complaints** by others, offered at least an alternative theme for the rest of us. Really cannot recommend it.
