What's new in Pixelmator Pro

Version 1.6.5:
  • Easily type text on a path, a circle, or any other shape.

  • The new Type tools also fully support emoji and SVG fonts.
  • Use the new Shift-T keyboard shortcut to cycle through Type tools.
  • Text layers typed on paths can be easily converted into shapes. Canvas Rotation

  • Press and hold the Space bar and R key together, then drag to quickly rotate the canvas when using any tool.

  • A friendly new welcome screen makes it easier to open your existing images, create new ones, and open photos from your Photos library.

  • Preview files in the new Welcome screen using Quick Look by pressing the Space bar on your keyboard. Improvements and Fixes

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.
