Pixelmator 2.0 Launches Tomorrow With New Image Editing Features



Pixelmator is a very popular image editing tool for the Mac that serves as a much cheaper alternative to Photoshop. The app sports a gorgeous interface that looks like it could have been designed by Apple itself.

Version 2.0 of Pixelmator will launch tomorrow in the Mac App Store with a host of new image editing features, including content-aware fill and support for OS X Lion’s Versions and Auto Save features.

Enjoy perfectly precise, full-featured drawing tools that allow you to easily create and edit any vector shapes, whether simple or advanced…and some more sophisticated Photoshop tools like content aware fill and a more advanced type tool.

Pixelmator 2.0 will only cost $29.99 initially in the Mac App Store. Existing customers will be able to download the update for free. The price will be raised to $59.99 soon after the launch, so make sure to grab it tomorrow at a discount!

    Can it be used to apply Instagram-like filters easily ?

    Nice! Finally! Been waiting months for this. Pixelmator is my favorite photo editing and layering app. I have the entire Adobe suite, but nothing matches Pixelmators speed and intuitive interface.

    You’d be better off getting something else from the app store i that’s all you’re after, there are some Quartz filters, but not exactly what you’re after.

    How does it compare to GIMP aside from GIMP being free?

    Fun to see everybody so exited about the Pixelmator upgrade. Hope it was worth the wait for everybody. The tutors at http://pixelmatortutorials.net are ready to show existing and new users that image editing in Pixelmator is fun, fast and exiting.

    GIMP is terrible. It uses X11 and is because of that very slow, it also suffers from open source disease and thus has a terrible interface.
    It also doesn’t use the Mac ‘taskbar’, so there’s another Windows like bar on your screen because of that.

    Pixelmator is fast, has many functions, but not too many. It’s not bloated.
    I wrote an article about it on my site:

    @maxaudet:disqus, you should try the great Analog app, from Realmac Software. Not only is the app great, it’s more than perfectly respectful of the OS X environment in terms of design and functionality! :)
