According to Pixelmator, the new cursor in iPadOS will allow creatives to work "in a whole new way" inside the Pixelmator Photo app. Next month, Apple will launch the new Magic Keyboard with a built-in trackpad, and that accessory will also work with Pixelmator Photo.

Pixelmator Photo 1.2 also introduces Split View and Slide Over support in iPadOS. The company also announced that its machine learning feature "ML Match Colors," which was introduced in Pixelmator Pro, is now available in Pixelmator Photo. This lets users match the look and feel of completely different photos with the help of a machine learning algorithm.

I recall purchasing this app for 4.99$, no subscription and I got all the updates for free. How is this even possible?

I’ve been using Pixelmator for all my image editing since the original release on Tiger. It’s also the most stable classic app on my OG iPad Mini. I always thought it was the missing piece of iLife and remain amazed Apple didn’t buy it up years ago and then just bundle it with everything.

Apple's rollout of iPadOS 13.4 has been rather clever. They have rolled out new versions of their own apps, and developers have rapidly added innovative features to their professional apps.

By the time the Smart Keyboard debuts in May, there will be a rich set of software to make the case for that new hardware.
