An Absolute Pleasure to Use!

I started with Pixelmator Classic, mainly because it provided a great alternative to Photoshop. In practice, I found it daunting to use. I then went over to Affinity apps, which are incredibly powerful tools, and you only pay their price once. Although Affinity is absolutely fantastic and completely maximized for Apple Silicon, it sometimes can hold you back speed wise, because it has so many features available to you at once. I don't know what made me revisit Pixelmator Pro, but I'm glad I did. I can't believe how easy it is to use.....and very fast. I feel like the workflow is so much more fluid. And not only that, it has vector graphics capability as well. It's so easy to switch back and forth between work environments. And Pixelmator Pro integrates into Apple Photos, Final Cut Pro, and Motion so easily. Also, the machine learning in the app is absolutely insane and surprisingly accurate. I can't believe I ignored this app for so many years. It is an absolute pleasure to use....it basically gets all the technical stuff out the way, and now I can focus on experimenting, developing and finalizing ideas quickly. The Pixelmator team has the magic sauce and it can only get better from here. This is my testimony.

An Easy-to-Use Picture Editor.

I find Pixelmator Pro to be a remarkable image editing app that has continuously impressed me with its powerful tools and user-friendly interface. One thing that stands out about Pixelmator Pro is the team's dedication to improving their app constantly. They have been actively adding new features and refining the existing ones to make the app even more intuitive and efficient. I'm always excited to see what they come up with next.

Another feature that sets Pixelmator Pro apart from other image editors is the level of support and resources provided to users. The app is well-documented and supported by a vast array of online tutorials, which make it easy to learn how to use its many tools.

Overall, I am impressed by the work of the team behind Pixelmator Pro. Their dedication to constantly improving their app and making it more accessible and user-friendly is admirable. If you're looking for a powerful image editor with a robust set of features and a sleek, user-friendly interface, I highly recommend giving Pixelmator Pro a try.

Adobe who?

I'm was a casual graphic designer that created assets as i needed them. When adobe switched to a subscription model I jumped at the chance to use the industry standard. Even at that cost I didn't use their service enough. I went looking for a solution and found the original pixelmator. Years later and with a shiny new job, I was handed an extensive creative cloud account with all of the bells and whistles. The problem? I kind of like pixelmator more... So, i requested a liscense and here i am again. Though the adobe suite does have tools that i find invaluable, when I'm doing most projects i find myself in pixelmator first. My experience with the software may make me a bit biased, but i find the tools to be more intutive. I think it is important to be familiar with many editors, but like my favorite brush i keep coming back to pixelmator. Also- they have a phone app, which ended up being unexpectedly useful and given me another reason to use this software over the others.
