Nondestructively change the look of entire layered compositions more quickly and easily than ever. Over new artist-designed vector shapes in categories like science, activities, and symbols. Thanks to optimizations for M1 Ultra, machine learning-powered features are blazingly fast on new Mac Studio devices. What’s new in Pixelmator Pro.

Many of the most important adjustments can be applied automatically, using a machine learning algorithm trained on 20 million photos. Magically remove unwanted objects, clone parts of your photos, lighten or darken precise areas, and do much more. All by using simple brushstrokes to retouch just the areas you want. So all your shots look picture-perfect. Pixelmator Pro supports RAW photos from over of the most popular digital cameras. Use color adjustments layers to combine different color adjustments, selectively edit photos with incredible precision, and change the look entire layered compositions with ease.

See the full list of adjustments. Thanks to its advanced algorithm, the Quick Selection tool lets you easily select even the most challenging objects and areas with just a few brushstrokes. I, on the other hand, am truly happy. It is as if you do not want to understand. IMO, you do not want to understand the other side of this issue.

Your speech so far shows up this way. As someone who is I think more objective on this matter, I lean toward those who see this deal as poor customer service. I think it is one step away from the CoverSutra deal and have had that discussion here. They are not the same thing, but at the bottom line, with what MAS ultimately presents to the consumer, they are very similar.

Thanks for the Amazon link. Helps to know there are other places to get the app. I say chances are very good the current deal is not the only deal Pix team could use to help people transition to MAS. I may have said, and still believe, if you want updates post 2.

Getting shafted is another animal. It is more humorous to me than travesty. You are today paying for an app you already own. That strikes me as funny and as you getting shafted. Also, to be clear, you getting shafted is less your doing. All in name of transitioning to MAS. But since it really shows up as you are rebuying app you own, that strikes me as getting shafted.

If you care to spin it another way, fine. I think there is other ways to spin it. The irony here is that MAS is making I think devs more rich regardless of these customer issues. CoverSutra seems to be doing quite well since MAS release and yet many people hate that deal. So apparently, this is the way to go. Go all in on MAS, shaft your past customers and let the chips fall where they may. I guess we can all spin it around to our own way of thinking, as you have demonstrated.

However, one significant advantage in addition to a free upgrade to v2 to buying in the MAS for some users will be that they can suddenly, legally, use Pixelmator on more the one computer. That in itself is an attractive proposition to many people. The major difference is that Sophie is not providing any more updates to the non-MAS version of her program, while promising free updates until version 3.

The Pixelmator team are providing updates until version 2 outside MAS. It all comes down to our own experiences, opinions and judgements. So arguing the toss on the forums is really a pointless exercise. Just one promise of being able to buy 2. Unwisely handled if you ask me.

Of course the company has the right to do this. Does it feel bad for me? Yes … End of story …. The way the App store is at the moment, transitioning customers are not differentiated from new ones. I doubt even the Pixelmator team would know, unless every current transitional user commented such on the App Store. To my mind, the App Store offers a superior experience for new users by being built directly into the OS and carrying the same trust as iTunes with respect to payments and returns.

And any time the Pixelmator team save by not having to manage multiple distribution channels will only benefit the product. Of course, I wanted an extra licence so that I could install it at work anyway. So the temporarily reduced price benefits me above and beyond any other concerns.

Clearly you cannot be a native English speaker. You think common phrases are signals of combativeness. I believe the only true solution to your problem of believing PM are shafting customers is to simply forget you ever heard of the application and buy a competitor like Acorn or even Photoshop itself.

Enjoy your stubbornness and outdated operating system. Maybe Team Pixelmator could consider a similar thing to what RapidWeaver are doing… i. Basically, you both have your own points and opinions, and whether they are right or wrong, neither of you are going to see the others side.. I am native English speaker. Feel pretty adept at the language. Show me that promise.

So, I see it as worse than Pix deal, but comparable. But if this is really about transition, then allow existing customers to believe they will get to try 2. Or still can. I see me being a Pix owner some day. Seems likely after 2. I have competing app and like it. Right now I have very bad taste with MAS, though that feels like it could change if MAS makes some adjustments that strike me as sensible and what every Mac dev and client is essentially screaming about in the last week.

You might want to get your upgrade now. I have no intention of using the app store, I like to have control for my computer, not Apple, so it look like this is where me and Pixelmator part-ways. I just hope that, as a loyal 1. They are a for-profit company. That very wording constitues a promise according to the dictionary definition does it not? I have, however, seen the words written in the program, so I know for a fact they exist.

The point is… PM Team said there would be free updates until version 2, and they are sticking to their guns, Sophie on the other hand is NOT sticking to hers.

Great Deal! I pay and you give me something in return! Is it hard to understand that what you tell us to be FREE is what we are asked to pay for?

So 14 items to clarify things make me feels one thing : create confusion to hide what things really are. Like a lot of other people who have already owned and have been championing Pixelmator I have followed these past couple of posts closely and have come to the conclusion that I will be taking my money elsewhere.

Trust me you will want it. Hand me the money please…! If Apple or the developer deceided to remove the app from the AppStore how do you reinstall it??? Where is your dmg file that still works in 10 years as you also own an old Are you really sure that the MacAppStore still let you install those old apps you loved for years?

Just as if you paid for the Wikileaks-iPhone App. Rene B.. TBH Pixelmator team have earnt my trust. By all means call me naive but with few exceptions Pixelmator makes me smile like few other art programs Expression, Brushes, Photoshop on a good day, Harmony and Pixelmator beats most of them so have they done things maybe a smidge clumsily? Would they have done things different if they had more time? Do they deserve my money as a pre-payment for v2?

Yes imo. It is a policy decision invoked after sale is made and registration info is entered into the application. If this were truly a principle thing, I believe it would be quite easy to poke holes into it. If CS deal cost 1 cent, do you think we have this convo?

If I am wrong about that, I will stand corrected. Though, I would just note that if I am wrong about that, it seems a bit odd that a developer would have paid upgrades between version 1. I am wondering if there is a public policy that goes back to release of 1. If yes, then my next point will help me to make it even more clear how Pix deal or past deals are like CS current deal.

For if it is true that Pix offers free upgrades between all versions of software from 1. So, I see CS deal as saying 2. Yet, with this added info on whether or not Pix users at 1. I do think it is reasonable expectation for 1. And if a platform change occurs like that of This developer cannot wait until our next major version is released. Dem da breaks. After making transition, what is to stop user who has hard copy or serial version from reselling that? I realize the value of that 1.

This also has lead me to believe how this is different from previous special deals on the app. If you sell that, you no longer own Pix, nor have avenue to upgrades. But with this new deal, you could sell your old copy and arguably come out ahead, depending on the buyer.

You said that you were on I guess if you level the playing field, and had CS — I bought v2. Along comes MAS, and Sophie releases a bug fix version, labels it 2. PM — I bought version 1.

However, I can go to the PM site and I can continue to receive updates up to version 2. However, in addition to this, the PM team said we will receive free upgrades to v2.

Assuming all things equal, i. The MAS makes absolutely no difference to that. So to counter that, they give us the opportunity now to pre-order v2, and get a free update.

They are continuing to provide me updates up until 2. Now, with you being on In which case, is this really the fault of MAS? At some point in time, every developer of software or hardware has to make the decision to drop support for older versions in order to provide a better product moving forward.

So no problem with that. Even if Apple tries everything possible and habe 5 backup locations and promise to never delete any app: Maybe someday a really good hacker or an earthquake or whatever destroys their servers and backups. What will happen if a company removes all their apps? Will Apple still keep copies for 20yrs so you can still redownload them? And this part is something I can control to a much better extent.

If you trust Apple and believe that everything is there in 10yrs go ahead an use the MAS. You can even download most apps for free and I think that many users will start doing this in the future as the MAS made it really easy to pirate any app but this is not an option for me.

Thinking that many customers will pay twice for an App is — out of my world. As great as Pixelmator is, as much as i love the app. Having to pay a second time for the same app just to maybe get an update to 2. Will the company still exist? What if 2. What if you all seating on some white sunny beach drinking cocktails with all the money you got from selling the same app twice and never produce a 2.

And the Mac App Store sucks. For customers outside the US it is a pain. Same bugs as iTunes. Not even the simplest thing like a working back button! It takes you to page 1. Thats not even beta-software. So stop telling that the Mac App Store is such a great user experience. Are you aware that outside the US not all Apps are available? So maybe Pixelmator is available in country x but not in country z — is that what you want? Some countries dont have iTunes stores at all, so they dont have a Mac App Store either — no way to purchase Pixelmator 2.

You know you can backup the application as it sits on your hard drive too, right? In fact, create a disk image, copy the Pixelmator app into it, and back that up across multiple locations.

Without any upgrade pricing in place, how is 2. For goodness sake people! And you get the next version FREE!!!!! So the big mistake for Pixelmator would have been not being in the MAS. Jealous that new customers will pay less to use the same software you use everyday.

Not true, they can do something about it. On my desktop I care very much. Hell no. For free! Dmitri Zdorov. Robert Nixon. Hopefully Apple will introduce a way for developers to offer upgrade pricing to existing customers down the road. Your app is the reason I am free from the evils of Adobe. Robert Nixon : Be careful with buying software outside the AppStore, even so it came as a special offer. You never know if you have to pay twice. This program is NOT for beginners like me. There is no indication on Pixelmators app store page that this is only a time limited introductory offer.

Does it mean, that now they will be qualified for upgrades trough the AppStore? Virgil Dupras. You obviously care about it more than making your existing customers happy. Hmmm above it says that you will get the 2. Its simple, yet effective. A great deal of times its challenging to get that ideal balance in between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say that youve done a great job with this. In addition, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Web explorer.

Outstanding Blog! We people who did not use MAS for 1. I wish you guys would maintain your external distribution channel in addition to MAS.

How difficult is that, really? I prefer getting software directly from the producer, bypassing the middleman. I went to MAS, redownloaded the new trial version of iWorks and reinserted my original key. Not the case here with Pixelmator. No support, no help and they keep deferring me back to Apple client support. Pixelmator Blog. RSS Feed. Let me try to clarify things by answering some questions about the recently launched Pixelmator transition to the Mac App Store : If you own a non-Mac App Store Pixelmator license: 1.

What is the Mac App Store transition? Why did you do the transition? Comments Thanks and congratulations for the great success! Chris Why am I — as a customer — limited to one store? Wayne Bought Pixelmator the second I heard about the free 2.

Tomi Questions left unanswered although they certainly were asked frequently: -When will there be information about Pixelmator 2? Ray Still not a good deal for existing customers no matter what spin you put on it. Justin Well I for one sincerely hope that the AppStore is a monumental failure. The only person who wins out of the app store is apple. People love it. Justin Saulius, Well I wish you all the best with it. Saulius Dailide Chris, And I totally understand your dissapointment at first and thank you very much for your warm comment.

Bee-Ess Ok, shut up Saulius. Regards Valentin. Wooster Quick question, one I think I already know the answer to, but I feel like asking none the less. Yesterday I had a bad taste while discovering your policy. I still have it! Saulius Dailide Wooster, it is unlikely that Apple introduces upgrading system anytime soon. Saulius Dailide Henzo, Andi, thanks a lot for your trust!

Trent As the team have got a firm stance on their decision, there is an issue that needs clearing up. PietHH «The offer will end in two months, I presume. Domsou Saulius, I am not as some others people here an old PM user.

Finally, I understood your policy. Can the team please clarify this for us? Trent The question on an upgrade policy does not seem to be answered. So this is my view. Saulius Dailide Trent, we definitely allow using Pixelmator for commercial purposes.

Trent Saulius, Thanks for the response. I am still concerned about the upgrade policy Or lack of , that still remains unanswered. Acorn have retained the original system for upgrade purposes. This makes very good sense. Feedback please? These are issues that the team need to clear up with an explanation for customers. Ruben Oh dear.. Now HTFU and bring layer styles. Sander As several people stated, lower the price once 2.

Bob Cooper hamsta: You want to come across as smug? How many of them bought your product in the last 6 months? Existing customers be damned. Valentin I just bought Pixelmator on AppStore. Keep up the good work. Julia Altermann Thank you so much for the extensive explanation you offer on your blog regarding the transition to the Mac App Store. Bubz Aidas, Saulius, please answer Sander.

DPient Aidas Dailide, I have a few question. I also post this in previous weblog post, you can that one if you want. Aidas Unfortunatelly there was no way to transfer our existing customers to the Mac App Store the way we really wanted — by just importing our existing customers to the Mac App Store and releasing paid 2.

Domsou Aidas, Following DPient proposition there is one simple thing you can do : extend free upgrade from existing user beyond 2. Dan Domsou Existing users are already getting an offer. Jman Non user of Pix and following this discussion for past few days. Cheers, J. Dan Domsou You just expressed that existing and new users are somehow unequal in this deal, and think a solution is to make 2. Dan Domsou And I fail to see how this is different than for example, the long-time Photoshop user who has spent thousands buying the original and upgrades versus the new Photoshop user who has only paid for the latest version.

There is no problem here. Patrick Owen. Aurelija Pixelmator Team. Pixelmator Community. Is there another way to buy Pixelmator Pro? A place to talk about anything else with other Pixelmator users. Follow thread. Thu May 16, pm I’ve just spent the last three hours trying to buy Pixelmator Pro. Unfortunately, I get an error message when I try to buy through the App Store.

I searched online for an hour trying to fix it and then called Apple. After two hours with Apple support and every available supervisor, they told me they’d have an Apple engineer contact me tomorrow.
