The developer makes two versions -- a standalone version and a Mac App Store Version. The regular standalone version is at version 3.7.0. The Mac Store version is now at version 3.8.0. Please note that the system requirements listed have changed for the Mac Store version. As of version 3.8.0, PixelStyle Photo Editor on the Mac App Store now requires Sierra (10.12) or later to run. I had to use Time Machine to revert to version 3.7.0 in order for PixelStyle Photo Editor to run on my old Mac running El Capitan (10.11).

I do not se Pixelstyle as a Photoshop or Lightroom replacement and that's good. PixelStyle is meant for a novice like me that never have the chance to study graphics design. . But one irritating issue. The scroll function on my Magic mouse 2 make the image zoom up and down, totally out of control.. A quick click on 'Zoom to actual size' may stop it until it get out of control again. Maybe a update one day will stop the problem. Besides this, PixelStyle works great.
