Pixelmator

Pixelmator

There’s never really been an alternative to Adobe Photoshop. With its range of features it sets the photo-editing benchmark. We recently discovered OSX and IOS app Pixelmator, which plans on changing that. The impressively full-featured software has been designed from the ground up offering a complete suite of tools allowing you to touch up, enhance, draw, paint, and add effects to your images. With iCloud integration, you can be sure any of your works of art are safely stored on the cloud, with anytime/anywhere access. The IOS version is surprisingly comprehensive, allowing editing of layer-based images, whilst the multi-touch screen lends itself perfectly to retouching, painting and creating masterpieces on the go. Pixelmator can handle your Photoshop .psd files without problems, meaning you can pick up on those half finished jobs with ease. Whilst not quite replacing Photoshop for the heavy user it gets excitingly close on the everyday stuff, and perhaps it’s just a few versions away until you can fully make the switch.
