What’s New

Version 1.5.1

Pixelmator Pro 1.5.1 adds a new Soft Proof Colors feature so you can quickly view the colors of an image in different color spaces (such as CMYK) and adds a number of additional improvements and fixes.

• Use the new Soft Proof Colors feature to accurately see how an image will look when converted to CMYK colors.
• Turn on Soft Proof Colors in the View menu or using the Command-Y keyboard shortcut.
• When moving or transforming multiple layers, any hidden layers will now also be transformed.
• Optimized memory usage of the ML Denoise feature.
• The Delete key will now clear selections and delete layers just like the Backspace key does.
• Layer style presets with large color spaces now load over 100x faster.
• Reduced the loading speed and memory usage of color adjustment, effect, and layer style data.
• Pixelmator Pro Automator actions are now up to 5x faster when processing large amounts of images.

• This update includes fixes for a number of related color management issues, including:
– Numerical RGB values (in the Colors window) changing in different color spaces.
– Colors shifting in SVGs exported from documents with non-sRGB color spaces.
– Issues with keeping the colors of Styles and Effects in sync with the document color space.
– Correctly matching the colors of text layers, layer styles, and effects after changing a document’s color profile.
– Keeping all letters in the same color space when editing text layers.
– Correctly matching colors when pasting layers from documents in different color spaces.
– Correctly matching the colors of effects, color adjustments, and layer styles when pasting between documents in different color spaces.
• Unnecessary undo steps would be registered when switching between documents while editing text in a text layer. Fixed.
• The Black & White, Color Monochrome, and Sepia color adjustments would clip colors when combined with certain other adjustments. Fixed.
• Using Image > Color Depth to convert the color depth of an image was not working correctly. Fixed.
• When pasting long passages of text, it would wrap incorrectly. Fixed.
• Copying and pasting text within Pixelmator Pro would sometimes scale it by 2x. Fixed.
• After dragging and dropping an image from Export for Web, the progress sheet wouldn’t always disappear. Fixed.
• Images with a LAB color space would not open. Fixed.
• PSD files would not work with the ML Match Colors feature. Fixed.
• When cropping images using the Delete mode, Pixelmator Pro would occasionally stop responding. Fixed.
• The My Templates shortcut menu was not working in languages other than English. Fixed.
• In macOS 10.15, documents would sometimes be exported with transparent areas. Fixed.
• The Font pop-up menu would sometimes get stuck and it would not be possible to change fonts. Fixed.

Great, but small bug

Fast and feature rich.
Freehand selection doesn’t select under the mouse cursor if you zoom and scroll, the marquee position gets confused and offset by a few hundred pixels.
Scrolling around fixes it momentarily.

A great app! Not a compromise!

I occasionally need to edit images on my home computer and didn't really want to pay A$14.94/mo subscription to one huge A company for the software I just use occaisionally. I tried a lite "Elements" version of that big "P" software, but it feels like that lite version was deliberately made to be inferior to the big software. I tried many other trials and all these apps were not really better than well known open source editor.

Finaly I tried the Pixelmator for a few days and I absolutely happy with this editor, for sure this app does not do everything the big "P" does, but it does everything I need for my occasional editing, does it great, and has superior usability. Well done guys! Thank you! Purchased today without waiting for the trial to finish.
