Image Editing App Pixelmator Half Off Ahead of 3.2 Update

pixelmator.jpgPopular Photoshop alternative Pixelmator today announced that it is planning to introduce a new Repair Tool in an upcoming 3.2 "Sandstone" update, allowing users to remove dust, blemishes, and entire objects from images with "an unsurpassed level of precision and quality."

To promote the future update, which will be available for free to existing Pixelmator users, the app is on sale for half off for the next week, dropping the price from $29.99 to $14.99.


Pixelmator regularly updates its image editing software, with the future 3.2 update following its January 3.1 update, which added full support for the Mac Pro, with 16-bit per channel images, full GPU support, and optimizations for the multi-core processors in the computer.

Back in October, the app was also updated with Mavericks support and a new image editing engine, greatly enhancing its performance.

Pixelmator can be downloaded from the App Store for $14.99. [Direct Link]

The new repair/healing tool is truly mind-blowing.

I just bought this app because of MR's post and because the reviews have been stellar. The reviews are accurate. The repair/heal tool is AMAZING. It took me less than 30 seconds to edit this photo from a busy Airshow I went to a few weeks ago. [I got rid of the woman to the left]

I cannot speak more highly about this app. It runs great on my late 2008 iMac. Great buy.

I don't know why but I can never do real work on this app... I always end up opening Adobe Photoshop CC

I'd been using PS for over a decade and finally dumped Adobe and have been liking Pixelmator a lot. The work flow is much different from PS, but I've adjusted and am doing just fine with it. Looking forward to the update.

Same. I think it's a really well designed app. But I think I'm just so used to photoshop and illustrator.

If that repair tool is as good in every photo as it is in that one, they can have $100 from me...

Acorn 4 (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/acorn-4-image-editor-for-humans/id634108295?mt=12), another friendly Photoshop alternative, has also had its price cut to $15 recently. I personally prefer Acorn and suggest you give it a look too if you're considering Pixelmator (which seems to have far better marketing…).

At $15 each this week, there's really no reason not to get both Pixelmator & Acorn. An art kit has more than one kind of pencil or eraser.
