Almost Great

Fantastic for the price. Needs a few things to simplify the work flow. Most importantly it needs a way to check the last edit against the original without using undo. Sounds minor. It’s not! Easy to get confused and clearly begins to slow the iPad down after a lengthy series of rapid edits and reviews. It is also nearly impossible to keep similar but slightly different photos straight without opening and closing images fingers crossed.
Less importantly, but just slightly is that the controls can be both over sensitive causing unintended UI behaviors that have occasionally destroyed an hour's work in half a second, or just causes general frustration. I'm looking at you, Jack-in-the-box-now-you-see-me-now-you-don’t Layers Pane; and your lousy buddy: Move Image Whether-you-want-to-or-Not.
The worst is when the Layers pane triggers and you try to close it, it usually applies the tool you were in the middle of using to the edge of the canvas. Sigh!
In the larger amazingness of what this app allows you to do with you images these are often just minor issues that occasionally get in the way. Other days they make me take months long I Just Want to See Other Apps Breaks... But I always return...

Perfect for Pixel Art - Except One Issue

cord_RED

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.
