What’s New

Version 2.6.3

Pixelmator 2.6.3 brings one new keyboard shortcut and a few fixes.

• You can now select the Clone tool by pressing the O key.
• When exporting images with transparency to PNG, their transparency would not be preserved. Fixed.
• In certain cases, a flattened version of incompatible Pixelmator files would be opened automatically without explaining why they were incompatible. Fixed.
• Sometimes, certain brushes would not appear in the brushes browser. Fixed.
• Undoing edits using keyboard shortcuts while using the selection tools would cause the redo stack to be cleared. Fixed.

Diamo a Cesare quel che è di Cesare 👌

Tra tanti software ( tralasciando le app) per un editing innovativo e non distruttivo , filtri effetti e quanto altro ... ad oggi questa app mi lascia sempre qualcosa di nuovo da aggiungere, togliere ,ritoccare etc per avere seppur con pochi campioni foto o video risultati sempre diversi e migliori , riesco a dare sfogo alla mia creatività ed alla fantasia seppur complessa con risultati davvero improbabili per una sola applicazione ,sebbene oggi sia in ottima compagnia, con una fluidità eccellente e a volte diventa puro divertimento che non guasta in attività , a volte certosine , di editing fotografico meritando le sue 4 stelle e non 5 perché in cuor mio ha in icona che non la rappresenta ( a mio avviso ovviamente )un po’ insignificante ed anonima con un rosso sbiadito...😔 che non merita .. perché privarla di un tocco di corposità e definizione e perché no ... lasciare all utente la decisione del colore? Una bella quinta stella per una grafica più bella .. io intanto ci spero che prendiate sul serio una grafica più innovativa come la bellezza delle foto che ci permette di realizzare ... se potete fateci un pensiero affinché la renda ancor più distinta tra le altre ( non sono uscito da un trattamento sanitario obbligatorio , giusto per precisare 🌈😊

Quasi perfetta...


Se vi piace manipolare le immagini e il matte painting questa é l’applicazione che fa per voi. All’inizio non È troppo intuitiva ma dopo un poco si comincia a capire come è stata pensata. È praticamente un foto shop portabile. Ho dato quattro stelle perché manca qualche piccola funzione molto utile in applicazioni di questo tipo quali ad esempio la distorsione dell’immagine per simulare una prospettiva per il resto è fantastica. Speriamo che aggiungano questa funzione quanto prima
