Coming soon, learn Pixelmator

I am very excited to announce a new book that will be hitting the shelves very soon, Learn Pixelmator. If you haven’t heard of Pixelmator yet it’s a very slick app that is comparable to Photoshop in many ways. It’s an app that’s been around for a few years and have been gaining traction as they continue to add more and more features to the app. It kind of looks like a simple Photoshop clone and while it does borrow a lot from Photoshop its a great example of a well designed application with a good amount of power. Just like Photoshop it can give digital artists and photographers the tools that we need to unleash the creative process inside. Pixelmator gives us many of the strong tools that other applications have at a fraction of the cost, making it a must have app for photographers at any level out there. Right now it is priced at just $19.99 and over the past has ranged from $20 to $45 and even at $45 is a steal for the functions you get.

I’ve been working on a book for awhile to cover some of the main functions of Pixelmator and am excited that this will be coming off the printing press very soon. I’ll update everyone once the book is launched and hope that it will be a useful tool for many of you who want to learn how to use Pixelmator.
