One thing missing….

The last version of Photoshop I used was CS4. Quit it when Adobe went to their subscription model. I’ve made do with Apple Photos. Tried Affinity Photo and it was ok. Had decided that I would probably settle on Luminar for what I need to do which, as you’ll see, is somewhat specialized. I was a CorelDraw user before I came over from the Dark Side and got an iMac I used it for graphic design and image handling. Doing layouts with images and text was a snap. I’ve never been able to find anything in the Apple app world to replace it until now. I’m an artist and I need something that will handle not only photographic image adjustments, but also images of paintings and drawings, which can be quite difficult to photograph and adjust accurately. I also need to be able to combine photos, art and text into single pieces for promotional and other work and finally, with Pixelmator Pro, I once again have found something that will do everything CorelDraw did and much more. I read through every feature section on the website, sat down, ran through every icon in the side bar, playing with different settings, brushes, etc. Piece of cake. Very intuitive for me. Looking forward to using is as a “painting media” also. The previous version of Pixelmator had just enough function to drive me crazy trying to get it to do what I want. No more. The Pro version rocks.
Just one request…please make it an extension of Photos asap.

I really like this

So I have used older versions of Photoshop and mainly was using Gimp for photo editing. I really like what Pixelmator has here. Good product. I’m happy with it. For basic fixes and enhancements this works. I tested out Affinity and it just wasn’t intuitive. I find the user interface here works for me.

I would make two suggestions to improve: Autosaving bugs me. I find that I mess around with a photo only to find it has saved to my photos. I then have to go in and revert to original. Big issue when I’m working on something I’ve already altered. Becuase this takes me too far back past other edits. I work around this by only messing with duplicated photos. And secondly I would like to see more auto filters in future updates.


I’ve been using Pixelmator for years, since it was the Mac package to make GIMP easier for the end user. I have always kept other image/photo editing apps - just in case - until they moved everyone to subscription model. With Pixelmator Pro I don’t miss them at all. The migration from plain old vanilla Pixelmator is not always obvious at first, but just using your Mac-sense seems to nearly always produce an expected result. Then a little playing around begins to reveal an application that is much more intuitively organized, full of sweet new treats, and good at reducing key strokes and mouse clicks. Very happy!
