  1. Congratulations to the winners!

    I’m jealous!

    I’m about halfway through my Pixelmator trial period and I’m definitely going to buy it (now that I haven’t won).

  2. @jimSydAus: This wasn’t a competition, it was a random selection, not based on merit. I’m glad I didn’t enter, as I was actually going to spend time actually thinking about the question at hand.

  3. As the former T3 tech for PS Elements, I advise you not to buy it regardless of what you’ve tried. Get Pixelmator, or spend a little more and get into the big leagues with Lightroom or Aperture.

  4. I use photoshop and I just tried out pixelmator and thing it would be awesome if they made a fuller version. I love a lot of the features and how they handle and look.. it truley looks like a Mac application and not a windows app converted over like photoshop does.

  5. I fancy myself an amateur photo enthusiast, and so I bought Aperture 2, and have been using it heavily since. Really want to upgrade to Aperture 3, but read so many horror stories with memory leaks etc. that I wanted to wait until it is more stable. I avoided trying Lightroom and it was an intentional decision.

    Here’s sincerely hoping, Apple is not too busy to overlook this little program of theirs.

    I have Aperture 3 and haven’t experienced too many issues. Places seems a little flaky and have has some weird text issues, other than that it’s been fine. I made sure that I have 3 separate vaults just in case though. 1 on system drive, the other two on separate externals.

    I tried Lightroom for a bit, but just didn’t like the workflow structure. Lightroom leads you by the hand from step A to B to C etc, while Aperture is more fluid IMO.

    Congrats on winning! It’s a nice little package, hopefully they will continue to add more features.

  7. “it truley looks like a Mac application and not a windows app converted over like photoshop does.”

    What freakin difference should that make? “Hey look – I got 1/100 of the app photoshop is – but it looks really cool!”

  8. C1,
    What’s a T3 tech? And, also, I thought you did work on Illustrator? When you were there that is. Is the rumor correct that you now work for the Evil Giant – soft and flaccid?

  9. @ Cubert

    Tier 3 tech support. Lower levels have now all been outsourced to low-wage, high turnover call centers in India. There are roughly six T3 techs left that are actually employed by the company for all those products. I suppported Photoshop and Premiere Elements,, and the PS CS 3 & 4 beta programs. When I started there were over 20 T3s, plus many more Tier 2’s that were also badged employees. I never worked on Illustrator.

    Simple cyber-stalking will reveal if your rumors are true. My LinkedIn profile has been public for years.
