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.

My favourite app is ruined now

My heart is broken. I used to be able to do such fine work in Pixelmator, but sometime in the last 2 years they’ve ruined the clone tool, you position the anchor but then as soon as you go to the target area the anchor moves to the target area & literally bobs around with the cursor. It’s unusable. Copy & paste is also bizarre now, it pastes to a random point outside the image & you have to go & find it & try to move it back in without distorting it. I’m going to have to find another app, or just learn Photoshop. I literally only use Pixelmator now to ‘repair’ out the occasional light socket etc from a background because the iOS native photo editor still doesn’t have a repair tool.
