Designed for iOS 12
Pixelmator is meticulously thought through and created from the ground up for iOS 12. Designed to take full advantage of powerful iOS features and technologies and engineered to leverage the full power of 64-bit architecture, Metal, Core Image, and Core Animation, Pixelmator delivers state-of-the-art performance and real-time responsiveness.
This update makes Pixelmator compatible with iOS 12 and adds a few additional improvements and fixes.
• Added several new aspect ratios to the Crop tool.
• To make it easier to rasterize non-image layers, Convert into Pixels is now available as an option in various popovers.
• Image thumbnails in various places in Pixelmator for iOS would be displayed as solid grey. Fixed.
• When tapping and holding a layer, the delay before drag & drop is activated has been increased.
• Drag & drop will no longer be activated when you hold a layer in place if you've already moved it.
• The Undo button has been moved slightly to the right to prevent accidentally exiting to the gallery.
• The tappable area of the buttons in the toolbar has been increased to prevent accidentally hiding it.
• When saving a copy of an image to the Photos app, the original format will be preserved (however, when saving to the same image, JPEG will still be used as is required by iOS).
• Save to Photos will no longer be shown as an option if the imported image was created on another device and it would not be possible to overwrite the original.
• Using the Distort tools on the new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max would create transparent areas in the image. Fixed.
• Pixelmator for iOS would sometimes stop responding when opening the gallery while syncing with iCloud. Fixed.
• Fixed an issue that would sometimes cause Pixelmator for iOS to quit unexpectedly when creating images from the Photos app.
• Added a few other fixes to prevent Pixelmator for iOS from quitting unexpectedly.
Ratings and Reviews
Pixelmator sets a new standard for photo editing on iPhone and iPad with a suite of staggeringly powerful tools. Combining gorgeous templates, intuitive touch-screen controls, and completely customizable effects, this full-featured editor is in a class all its own. Plus, with seamless syncing using iCloud Drive, it doesn’t matter where the project was started—you can keep editing on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac.
No Alpha Masks - don’t waste your time.
What a joke. This is yet another dumbed down image editor under the guise of having “pro" features. Something as basic as editing an alpha mask is missing. There’s all types of smart select tools but they are all garbage because they don’t give you the level of control that a true alpha mask gives you. This is such a let down. The Mac app has this, why not iOS? The iPad with a pencil would be the perfect tool to draw alpha masks, I really don’t understand why the developer would neglect to add such a basic feature that even free image editors like GIMP on Linux provide you.
Don’t waste your time with this app like I did. At the end of the day you get some preset effects, and color correction like the stock photos app gives you and some other effects that are more silly then useful.
Really regret wasting my money on this garbage.
Noway to access the tools as described. Apple should put the refund button in Big signs for this broken mess.
