Pixelmator Editor's Review

There is no denying the fact that Mac users are often left with fewer third party app choices than those who use Windows based PCs. However, when it comes to imaging, the situation is a little better. If you want a versatile image editor for Mac that does not cost much yet packs in lots of features, Pixelmator can be a worthy choice. It has plenty of bells and whistles to keep even demanding users satisfied. You can use layers, customize brushes and tinker with filters. Sharing edited images is also simple.

You will need a Mac system with OS X 10.9.1 and a 64 bit CPU to run this app. Installing the app is quite simple. It can be configured to support motile displays.

The interface of Pixelmator is strongly reminiscent of Adobe Photoshop. Photoshop users will have no difficulty in learning and using the app. Even for beginners, the learning curve is minimal. The UI is quite uncluttered. The tools palette at left side of UI and layers on right side of it are easy to use. There is another pallet which contains a myriad of effects and filters. Of course, you can choose to hide or show panels that fit your working style. Seasoned users will like the customizable keyboard shortcuts as well. It lets you use Apple’s iPhoto as the default image organizer.

As you select individual tools from the app toolbar, the actions and features showed on top part of its UI change accordingly. The Repair tool is bliss to use and with it you can fix image imperfections and remove unwanted objects easily. The app’s Move and Transform tools further ease up image retouching. Its Paint Selection feature enables you to edit images at pixel level. There is the familiar magic wand tool too. The revamped Liquify tools deserve a special mention. Using them you can create interesting and funny effects in a few seconds.

Pixelmator comes with a wide range of customizable brushes. You can tweak setting like brush stroke style, shape and tip strength. You may also create new brushes. Its advanced color correction tools will be appreciated by photographers. You can tweak attributes like saturation, exposure and contrast easily. The effects are neatly grouped and organized. It is possible to blend a number of effects to make images look stunning and artistic. The changes are rendered quickly.

Pixelmator supports use of layers, allowing users greater control over complex images with multiple objects and shapes. You can also use layer masks. The app is not taxing on system resources in general. However, dealing with high resolution RAW images is a different thing altogether! While opening RAW images, it’s CPU and memory consumption shoots up significantly.

When it comes to image sharing and exporting, Pixelmator ticks almost all the boxes. You can share images to sites like Flickr and Facebook without any problem. Supported export formats include TIFF, PDF and Photoshop PSD. It is also possible to export images to Aperture or iPhoto directly.

Positive Points:
•    Sleek, intuitive UI.
•    Adequate tools and brushes.
•    Support for wide image formats.
•    Support for multiple displays.

Negative Points:
•    Consumes resources when dealing with RAW images.

Conclusion:
Pixelmator packs in enough punch to qualify as a worthy Mac editor to suit needs of beginner to intermediate level users. It has a user friendly and uncluttered UI that is easy to mange. The provided toolset and features are praiseworthy. You can customize brushes and work with hotkeys. Its support for image formats is commendable. The only glitch is that it drains system resources a lot when dealing with RAW images.

Rating: 3.5/5
