What’s New

Version 1.5.3

Pixelmator Pro 1.5.3 adds some major performance improvements to Auto Save, includes a new Show Source Marker option for the Clone tool, and brings a few important fixes.

• Auto Save performance has been significantly improved.
• The new Show Source Marker option for the Clone tool lets you show and hide the occasionally inconvenient source marker.
• It was not possible to undo text color changes after selecting text in a text box and using the sliders in the Colors window to change its color with a Force Touch trackpad. Fixed.
• When using Export for Web to export images at 2x and 3x scale factors, shape layers would not be exported correctly. Fixed.
• When using Pixelmator Pro on Mac computers with AMD Navi GPUs — either external ones or internal ones, such as in the new 16-inch MacBook Pro — images would not be rendered correctly. Fixed.
• When applying certain effects to layer masks, Pixelmator Pro would sometimes stop responding. Fixed.

Excellent but Struggling App

Web Editor's dream tool, WITH ONLY ONE WISH. PIXELMATOR GRADIENT TRANSPARENCY using Apple Colors panel Opacity sliders from 100% opacity to 0% opacity worked EXCELLENT. PIXELMATOR PRO NOT WORKING tragically dumped transparency gradient. PLEASE BRING BACK GRADIENT TRANSPARENCY to PIEXELMATOR PRO. Not pro. Lose PS 50/50 transparency method that evereyone knows is a fail. Bring back PIXELMATOR EXCELLENT simple Colors panel slider transparency gradient.

Barely Kicking ,

Not pro, not yet.

This app is missing a TON of features you can get in Affinity Photo. Get that instead. The "Intelligent" features are more for editing photos that were poorly taken rather than photos taken by a professional photographer, so don't waste your money on this. Not yet anyways.

Developer Response ,

Hi there, if you could let us know what features you'd most like to see in Pixelmator Pro, we'd absolutely take your feedback into account in future updates.

P.S. Feel free to either edit this review or drop us a line at, either option works for us. :)
