What is Pixelmator – Image Editing App?

If you haven’t heard of Pixelmator yet and are a Mac user this is definitely one app to pay attention to. It’s an app that’s been around for a few years and have been gaining traction with photographers and designers month over month. Pixelmator is an application with beautiful and sleek look to it that at first glance can seem like a very simple application. 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.


With Pixelmator you can unleash the creative artist inside and enhance your photos. It’s a Mac only app and can be purchased through the Mac App store.

The latest version of Pixelmator also includes full Mountain Lion support which gives you some great features like Full Screen, Auto Save, and Versions. You can get the application now in the Mac store for a sale price of $14.99 by clicking the link below. I am also thinking of writing a series of tutorials on the app. If you are interested in this please comment below and also sign up for our email newsletter. I would love to know if some in depth articles would be a value for everyone.
