Da ich Hobbymässig gerne Videos bearbeite und schneide und daher auch, dass ein oder andere Foto bearbeiten „muss“, habe ich nach einem sehr guten, einfach verständlichen aber auch schicken Fotobearbeitungsprogramm gesucht.

Adobe Photoshop und co sind mir in erster Linie zu umständlich und überfüllt mit Funktionen, welche leihen nicht benötigen und schlichtweg zu teuer.

PIXELMATOR ist hier einfach nur genial. Ich bin von den Funktionen und deren einfache Bedienung begeistert.

Auch das überliche Apple Design - liebe ich - so wie FCPX .

Danke dafür.

Viel spaß

Super Programm

Ich mag Affinity Photo nur mit Pixelmator komme ich viel besser zurecht. Ich nutze beide Programm und bin mit Pixelmator sehr zufrieden. Ich bin auch schon gespannt auf das neue Pixelmator Pro.

Die günstige Affinity Photo/Photoshop Alternative

Ich war langjähriger Kunde bei Adobe und zahlte dort auch ein halbes Vermögen für deren Software. Doch irgendwann kamen sie auf die "interessante" Idee, dass ein Abo-Modell gut sein könnte. Da ich aber absolut kein Fan von Abo-Modellen bin, bin ich auf diese Software gestoßen und muss sagen: Ich bin absolut zufrieden mit diesem Stück Software! 5 Sterne dafür!
