Buono, ma…

E’ un buon software che oltretutto viene offerto ad un prezzo estremamente vantaggioso. Detto questo non ha nulla a che fare con Photoshop, al limite può essere paragonato alla versione Express di Photoshop ma non certo alla CC che rimane per ora l’unico vero software professionale per il fotoritocco. Detto questo puo’ rappresentare un approccio molto semplificato per che vuole iniziare a lavorare con un software di semplice utilizzo e relativamente efficace. I tools sono precisi ma non possono essere paragonati per onestà a Photoshop CC, come leggo da alcune recensioni.

Non si può chiedere di più!

Incredibile con la nuova touchbar!!!! Un programma di grafica, veloce, con supporto a tanti formati, intuitivo, con il 99% di quello che serve anche ai professionisti, brush comodissime (da cui adobe ha copiato quelle delle CS5). Potrei andare avanti ad elencare i tantissimi pregi di Pixelmator ma vi assicuro che per quello che costa li vale tutti sia che siate webdesigner, grafici o vogliate avere semplicemente un potente programma per piccoli ritocchi, divertimento o le necessità di fare grafica di un utente normale.
Adesso il repair tool è ancora più veloce!

Degno sostituo di Photoshop

Non sono un grafico professionista, ma per il mio lavoro ho spesso bisogno di elaborare fotografie, effettuare correzioni, ritocchi… Su Windows utilizzo Photoshop e, naturalmente, mi trovo benissimo. Cercavo una valida alternativa, ma che non costasse uno sproposito e che supportasse correttamente vari spazi colore.
Pixelmator è perfetto. L’interfaccia è ergonomica, supporto retina, … Ottimo rapporto qualità prezzo.
