Perfect for Pixel Art - Except One Issue

I love Pixelmator - very smooth, simple, and easy to use, with lots of diverse tools. I use it mainly for pixel art, because simply enough, there aren’t and good tools to make pixel art or animations out there. This one has huge potential.

One issue, however - when making pixel art, somewhere in the process of closing the file and reopening it, or somewhere in there, it becomes ever so slightly distorted in color. Pixels near the edge of other colored pixels will blend in color - and thus it’s impossible to maintain image quality. I’ve also noticed this in my non-pixellated work - a tiny loss in quality as I work over a period of days. I’ve tried everything to experiment and see if it was me causing the problem - but can’t seem to solve it (using iPhone 6 plus). Unfortunately, I can’t rely on the app to export when using it for game art or anything like that. However, if this issue were to be solved, it would easily be five stars, and the best art application out there.

Absolutely fantastic!

This app is so fun to work with. It’s unique in it’s own right and it allows you to create such cool pieces very easily. I highly recommend this app to anyone that’s looking to be creative whether that be through drawing, lettering or photo editing. I love being able to create fun pieces of art by working with the in-app effects.

HORRID EXPERIENCE!!!

I am by very nature an easy going guy, until I shelled out $5.00 for Pixelmator. A useless piece of software does not even allow one to access their from the cloud, unless it is iCloud, which I rarely use. No access to Dropbox, pCloud, Adobe Cloud, where most of my files reside. As I keep most files off my iPad’s storage, I have nothing in Photos. So here I am with a useless app taking up precious real estate on my iPad, a complete waste of time and money.

Thanks for nothin, Pixelmator, enjoy my $5.00
