Pixelmator 2.6.3 brings one new keyboard shortcut and a few fixes.
• You can now select the Clone tool by pressing the O key.
• When exporting images with transparency to PNG, their transparency would not be preserved. Fixed.
• In certain cases, a flattened version of incompatible Pixelmator files would be opened automatically without explaining why they were incompatible. Fixed.
• Sometimes, certain brushes would not appear in the brushes browser. Fixed.
• Undoing edits using keyboard shortcuts while using the selection tools would cause the redo stack to be cleared. Fixed.

Combining gorgeous templates, intuitive touch-screen controls and completely customisable effects, this full-featured editor is in a class all its own. Plus, with seamless syncing using iCloud Drive, it doesn’t matter where the project was started—you can keep editing on your iPhone, iPad or Mac.
Great but where are the masks 🧐
This is a great app and really has a lot to offer. It has a potential of 5 stars, if it would include a few more advanced options, such as masking. It has blending modes, great stuff, but masking is really important. Also would be nice to have a couple more filters. Otherwise, no regrets just looking forward to future updates. Cheers!
It’s easy. It works. It’s Pixelmator.
I was excited to learn that Pixelmator was coming to iOS for my iPad when I watched the keynote. Being a user of the desktop app for years (however preferring other products due to my own habits) I was really interested in Pixelmator for iOS.
I currently use a 12.9” iPad Pro 2nd Gen. I downloaded this app several months ago and have not looked back. I’ve used this app for literally everything that I had use for in regards to image editing and creation and I’m quite impressed at how powerful yet incredibly easy this app is to use. I’ve created application interfaces, cropped and rendered images, merged and edited photos and just made my own photography work shine with Pixelmator.
I’m really, really impressed with this app. Everything is easy to find and use and everything just works (and works well, I might add).
I was really sceptical about using a proper image edited on the iPad using touch (and not a mouse) but Pixelmator crushed my doubts.
I would thoroughly recommend this application to anybody who wants to do any kind of photo editing. This is a true desktop replacement image editor.
