With an interface that will be familiar to users of Photomator on iOS and iPadOS, the Mac app includes a fully fledged photo browser with native Photos app integration, allowing users to organize, duplicate, share, and favorite images, as well as sync edits between Photomator and the ‌Photos‌ Library.

The app includes nondestructive tools to crop images, adjust colors, or repair and clone objects in photos, and users can edit specific parts of photos and make automatic subject, sky, and background selections.

According to the developers, machine learning algorithms enable users to increase the resolution of photos without noticeable reductions in detail or sharpness, match the colors of two photos, and remove camera noise. Photomator for Mac also supports batch-editing workflows and includes a Workflows browser, allowing users to crop images, adjust colors, and automatically apply edits to other images.

The app includes support for over 600 RAW image formats, and features built-in integration with Pixelmator Pro, which supports many Photomator edits, including selection masks and perspective corrections.

Apple Silicon should also bring a boost to Photomator workflows. Built for macOS using SwiftUI, the app runs on Mac mini models with M2 Max and ‌M2‌ Pro chips more than 20 times faster compared to the most recent Intel-powered Macs, claim the developers.

Photomator for Mac iPhone and iPad
Photomator for Mac is available to download today from the Mac App Store and offers a subscription model ($29.99 yearly, $4.99 monthly) or a lifetime purchase fee ($99.99).

Pixelmator Pro is a Photoshop alternative, while Photomator is a Lightroom alternative.

Wonder what it means for pixelmator pro , will they give it less love and less AI tools overtime ?
Nothing changes for Pixelmator Pro. Pixelmator Pro and Photomator are two different products, so their developments will continue separately. We'll keep improving Pixelmator Pro with new features and updates (AI tools included!). Announcements about these updates are coming later this year.
