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!

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.

An inferior product in an eye-candy package. If you’re a photographer and need to edit and color correct your photos please look elsewhere. I don’t know what they’re doing, but this app has the worst color manipulation algorithms I have ever seen. The general idea for photo editing for photographers is to boost or correct the visual already captured in a photo. Here all you see is image degradation with every attempt to tweak it. If you don’t have money on a big buck photo editing suite then I would recommend that you give the photo processing software that came with your camera a try, you will still get much better results.

The other major problem and a severe defect of the app is a total, deliberate, decisive absence of support for import of basic vector formats, like SVG or EPS, or export of graphics in vector form, despite the presence of thus useless app modality they call Vectormator and infinite requests from the users that have been posted regularly on their message board for more than three years as of the date of this review. That’s because they have their own, incompatible with anything else vector format that they want to lock you in, so rest assured, there will be no support for that in future.

Good for basic tasks, though, like cropping and rotation, if you want to waste money on something you can already do with built-in apps in macOS.
