“Pixelmator has long been my graphics editing program of choice,” Dennis Sellers writes for Apple Daily Report. “The app has only gotten better with the recently released version 3.0, which changes the name to Pixelmator FX.”
“Pixelmator supports over 100 different file formats, including — thank you, Pixelmator Team — PSD files,” Sellers writes. “The Pixelmator toolbar is very Mac-like. It’s streamlined, clean and easy to use after a short learning curve.”
“Pixelmator supports Photoshop images with layers, and it comes with more than 16 color correction tools and 50 Core Image-powered filters, transform tools, a QuickMask mode, ColorSync support, and Spotlight support. The brush and gradient tool is precise and fun to use,” Sellers writes. “I also love the magic wand, which visually shows the selection as you drag across targeted areas.”
