I’ve been using Pixelmator for many years. I love how it is both powerful and simple to use, especially for someone like me who is not a professional image editor. However, I am a basic features user and I never felt compelled to upgrade to the Pro version.
Last week I decided to buy it because it is 50% off and the non-Pro version won’t be upgraded to Apple’s “M” silicon. It turned out to be one of those things you didn’t know you needed until you got it.
There are many small improvements that are making me more productive. Not only that, it’s not limited to images anymore. It now has some basic video editing features, and it can export to Apple Motion.
Special thanks to Jenn Jager. It was her video demonstrating the new features that inspired me to finally upgrade.
