The Pixelmator Team today unveiled Pixelmator Pro, a brand new Mac app that redefines image editing on the Mac, providing professional-grade editing tools in an incredibly intuitive and accessible design. Pixelmator Pro 1.0, codenamed Whirlwind, includes a modern single-window interface, nondestructive, GPU-powered image editing tools, machine learning-enhanced editing features, and more.
The popular independent makers of the graphic/image editor Pixelmator announces a new Pro version of the software. Expected later this fall, the new version bring professional-level graphic editing with Mac-specific capabilities.
Designed exclusively for the Mac, Pixelmator Pro uses the Mac graphics processor in tandem with the latest Mac graphics technologies, such as Metal 2, Core Image, and OpenGL, to deliver blistering fast, GPU-powered image editing. Built with Swift 4, Pixelmator Pro is a next-generation app that takes full advantage of the latest technological innovations in hardware and software.
It sounds exciting. I hope to gives Photoshop a run for its money because I really dislike Adobe's annual subscription model. It's pretty expensive and I'm still using the last non-subscription version of Creative Suite.
