    1. Agreed, John. I’ve purchased and used each major rev of Pixelmator, and like its look and feel, but it is missing all kinds of capabilities that would make it a substitute for Photoshop, starting with only limited support for 16-bit images. I would love to dump Adobe off my Macs.

  1. I’ve got Pixelmator Sandstone, and it’s very good.

    Would like a window that shows all the photo data, the way Photoshop Elements has, and which also includes a section to embed © information. Adobe makes viewing EXIF and raw data, etc, in a single click.

    For the most part, though, it isn’t necessary to pay $99 for Photoshop Elements 13. Pixelmator is close enough.
