The Pixelmator Team today announced Pixelmator 3.1 Marble, an incredible update to its innovative, fast, and full-featured image editing app that adds support for 16-bit per channel images on the new Mac Pro and a new option for ordering prints. Pixelmator 3.1 Marble is available today as a free update from the Mac App Store.

“We are extremely excited for professionals to experience the power and speed of Pixelmator 3.1 Marble on their new Mac Pros,” said Saulius Dailide of the Pixelmator Team, in a statement. “Harnessing the power of the Mac Pro’s dual-GPU architecture, we’re now able to support 16-bit per channel images for the first time and push the limits of Pixelmator performance like never before.”

Fully optimized for the new Mac Pro, Pixelmator 3.1 Marble leverages the full power of the dual workstation-class GPUs built into it. Both graphics cards are used simultaneously to accelerate composition rendering and compute demanding tasks. This means that image editing is now completely seamless, and even with large and complex compositions you will experience profoundly faster and more responsive performance.
