I’m converted!

A while back, I had tried and disliked PixelMator software. I had also tried everything else I could find for managing and editing my photos on the iPad Pro, including Lightroom, darkroom and many others. I did a 2nd round of testing of them all months later, and now find that this is by far the most comfortable and feature rich tool out there, integrating extremely well with Apple photos where I now have all my raw sony files.
Using this along side Affinity Photo, provides a great combination of sheer power on the iPad for photo editing, especially with the ICC softproofing support in Affinity. These two softwares are like a dream team.

I would really appreciate seeing the ISO/F-stop/shutter speed when I click photos and open them in single-viewing mode. It would also be great to be able to do flag and tag in this view as well.

Simple. Intuitive. Fantastic.

Pixelmator photo for iPad strikes a good balance between usability and functionality, and has a very simple and intuitive interface. It’s not on par with affinity photo in terms of raw power but its brilliant for its speed of workflow, and I really like the built in filters. It’s also great value for money. In terms of functionality its more lightroom than photoshop, however I prefer this. I stopped using adobe by and large when it became clear that they were so far behind in mobile, and they became greedy with their subscription model. I also use pixelmator pro on mac. A feature from the Mac I would really appreciate on here would be ML SuperResolution which transforms the humble jpeg from usable image for instagram and the like to allowing one to make large high quality professional prints with the click of a button. Many may say that those making prints should be using RAW files, but those individuals are unfamiliar with Fujifilm Cameras excellent and beautiful built in film simulations which only work in jpg. Which again speed up ones workflow, but also achieve highly original photo prints. There are a few pro re-touching features I’d like in both apps, one of which that I’d appreciate sooner than later would be the ability to liquify, which again would mean less necessity to be jumping between apps to complete an edit. Well done, and Keep up the good work guys!
