    Pixelmator can do most all the basic functions of Adobe Photoshop but without the price tag or the "cloud" component and leasing fees. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

    For quasi-designers, I would never say I am an expert graphic designer and never execute final files for clients. However, I do last-second image edits for ads, email campaigns and other marketing tactics. All Adobe apps on OS desktop are too convoluted and not intuitive for rookies to intermediate design skilled users. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

    Lack of IPTC support for embedded information for the images is a deal-killer for use in a professional photography setting. It's critical to be able to embed information about the image. Also the File Save workflow is frustrating since it drops the Save/Save As feature we've all been used to in favor of Apple's design of save before creating mentality.

    Unfortunately Pixelmator behaves rather clunky in many situations, making it feel hard to control at times. Especially when it comes to functionality like copy&paste of layers or selections, it rarely does the right job on the first try. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

    Overall: I do almost all my graphics on PIxelmator Pro, thought I do use Canva for quicker cut/paste creations and final rendering. I create book covers and detailed banners/graphics/ promotional materials for both our church and for my business using Pixelmator Pro. There are many features in Pixelmator Pro that I do not yet use. I learned a new one just yesterday as I had need--by finding the answer in a forum and applying that. I still would like to figure out how to do some filters, but I know there are many more features awaiting my learning them in Pixelmator Pro.

    Overall: After searching for alternatives to expensive softwares i stumbled on Pixelmator and discovered this software offers the same features as all the major "classic design softwares". The first few days i learned quickly how to use it as it is very intuitive, and tons of tutorials are available. For quick photo editing, and even to create new layouts, or anything visual, Pixelmator has become an unmissable tool in my creative arsenal.

    Overall: I started out using Pixelmator Pro because it was the cheapest, most accessible option out there for multi-function graphics design, including vector drawing. However, because of the prevalence or dominance of other programs (like Photoshop or Illustrator) among other people and tools that are used in the design business, it has become superfluous among the other programs that I ended up needing to use more regularly.

    Overall: Once you learn some of its features, you can create just about anything. While I have not edited pictures, the ability to edit and repurpose elements. We were able to recreate a sign with edits from a PNG of the original. It really helps create images for advertising and social media.

  • Douglas S.Owner

    Overall: My experience with Pixelmator Pro has been a positive and productive one. I am a one-person shop and the software meets all my graphic editing needs. I have been able to easy create and edit various projects from business cards, to logos, to graphic images.

  • Keith T.CEO

    Overall: My overall experience with PIXELMATOR PRO is offers the features and. benefits of a Photoshop type graphics program without all the complexity that comes with learning Photoshop. Its been my go to graphics software for 10+ years
