What's new in Pixelmator Pro

Version 1.8:

Pixelmator Pro 1.8 Lynx brings support for AppleScript, the powerful and easy to use Mac scripting language, adds the ability to use the Repair and Clone tools on RAW photos nondestructively, and includes a number of additional improvements and fixes

Automation with AppleScript
  • Pixelmator Pro is now scriptable using AppleScript with an extensive and full-featured scripting dictionary
  • Write scripts using over 60 application-specific commands together with all the standard AppleScript terms
  • Take advantage of automation-specific commands like 'detect face', 'detect QR code' and 'replace text' to create powerful and versatile scripts
  • Check out the Pixelmator Pro dictionary in the Script Editor app and learn more about scripting with Pixelmator Pro on our Tutorials site
Improvements and Fixes
  • The Repair and Clone tools now work nondestructively with RAW layers, preserving all their extended dynamic range data
  • You can now reset all changes made to RAW layers with the Transform, Repair, and Clone tools using the new Reprocess RAW command, which you can find by Control-clicking a layer in the Layers sidebar
  • In that same shortcut menu, you'll also find a new Export RAW command which lets you export the original RAW file directly from Pixelmator Pro
  • The performance of the Repair tool has been improved — starting a Repair tool brushstroke should now be much faster and the tool should also be more responsive in large images
  • The Paint tools will now start painting more quickly and responsively while the image is being scrolled, zoomed, or otherwise animated
  • When using the Repair tool with Sidecar and Apple Pencil, it should now be a little less sensitive to pressure changes to make it easier to paint strokes with more consistent sizes
  • The Repair tool overlay would sometimes not be visible when layers were behind certain other layers. Fixed
  • The scrollbars would not work correctly when drawing shapes with the Pen tool. Fixed
  • In certain cases, it was not possible to edit the text inside path text layers. Fixed
  • Text would sometimes shift slightly when starting to transform path text or edit its path. Fixed
  • The two-finger canvas rotation gesture can now be disabled using the following Terminal command: defaults write com.pixelmatorteam.pixelmator.x canvasRotationGestureEnabled -bool false

Really good. Improvements in interface a major improvement. Still take a look at Luminar 4 and Affinity Photo and Designer as possible significant challenges.

No, it's not free, it's only a free trial. For me GraphicConverter is the superior multi-tasking tool, for most users and even photographers, graphic editors(not artists)...etc.

The ML functions are fantastic. As a complete amateur photoeditor I am very impressed by how easy it is to make a mediocre photo look good in Pixelmator Pro. I own all of Pixelmators apps on MacOS and iOS/iPadOS, and I am very impressed by all of them.

I was looking for a Photoshop replacement, and from all the apps I tested Pixelmator Pro is the one that does not let me miss Photoshop much. It does not have all things that Photoshop has, but it does have all the important things one needs for creating images for websites or Facebook. Some things are even better than Photoshop. As a plus, while other apps are a bit ugly, Pixelmator Pro is very elegant. Thank you for this!

Currently Pixelmator Pro is cheaper than Pixelmator in MAS. A review suggested the latter is to be abandoned by the developer.

Very good Photoshop alternative. The GUI needs some time to get used to though.
