Wonderful value for the price

It's not a Photoshop replacement or not even a Photoshop Elements replacement but it's powerful enough and very easy to use. I own a Photoshop Elements that seems to be a little better featured but I tend to use Pixelmator because of its usability advantages. One star less for buggynness.

Best tool for the Buck

Pixlemator is one of best software tools I’ve ever bought.

I’m not a pro designer, but a software developer and use it daily to cut/slice/modify images from other sources, create icons, enhance app screenshots, etc...
Sometimes I need to do something more complex and still it’s more than enough for all my tasks.

I really can't think of anything better you can buy for this price.

Highly recommend.

Just the best out there

Best software I've ever used (and I used many!), definitely easier and better than Photoshop for most tasks.
