What happens when a company has a successful product, but thinks it can do better? The folks behind Pixelmator made a surprise announcement last year when they introduced Pixelmator Pro.
I reviewed this new venture at Macworld: Pixelmator Pro 1.0 Whirlwind review: An affordable alternative for pro Photoshop users.
My impression is that Pixelmator Pro is a great first start, but still has some rough edges to work out. The work they’ve done to make edits non-destructive is impressive and welcome, and I approve of a departure from the Photoshop-style layout that most applications mimic.
At $60, though, it could be just the thing for someone who wants to edit photos and put together compositions without springing for a full Creative Cloud license to use Photoshop.
Macworld moved its comments to Facebook, so you can comment on the review here; or, feel free to tell me your thoughts below.
