Gute Bearbeitung, schlechte Auswahl

Wenn man sich ein Foto in der nativen Fotos App ansieht, gibt es keine (mir bekannte) Möglichkeit das Foto an Pixelmator weiterzugeben. Die Photos Extension kann nur ein paar vorgefertigte Effekte anwenden. Es ist fast unmöglich ein bestimmtes Foto, das nicht unter den letzten paar ist, in Pixelmators Öffnen Dialog wiederzufinden. Im Idealfall sollte die Photos Extension direkt das volle bearbeiten erlauben oder es sollte eine andere Möglichkeit geben ein Bild aus der Fotos App in Pixelmator zu öffnen.

Die Bearbeitungsfunktionen sind gut und zuverlässig.

Sehr empfehlenswert,

Läuft mittlerweile sehr gut!
Ich konnte zunächst keine Bilder öffnen oder erstellen.
Das lag aber an dem gleichzeitig installierten Pixum.
Der Support hat mir sofort geholfen.
Ich kann auch mit Pixelmator Pro die Dateien über iCloud weiter bearbeiten und umgekehrt Die Layer bleiben dabei erhalten.
