About Pixelmator

Pixelmator is an OS X only image editing tool designed with speed, simplicity and a great user interface in mind. It lacks the raw power of Photoshop, but provides a great, flexible tool for graphics editing and photo manipulation. After using it for a few weeks, I decided to make the switch for most of my graphic editing work. It’s quick, simple and – although it takes a little while to adjust from the Photoshop interface – definitely worth trying out.
