Pixelmator: Photo Editing for the rest of us

Beautifully designed, easy-to-use, fast, and powerful image editing app for the Mac. Best of all it’s extremely affordable.

So you’ve been using Photoshop before, and you know that it’s extremely powerful. From smart objects, smart filters, effects and other great features, you’d struggle to find a tool that is more filled with limitless possibility. However, we have all witnessed the dark side – clunky, crashes and it sucks up all your system resources – basically a hog with a funny gait.

Enter Pixelmator. What a fresh breeze on the wind of photo editing. The team behind Pixelmator have obviously gone through the same dark side of the force and emerged with new values, the Jedi Knight. Fast and simplified, it speaks to the purist.
