Five Years of Pixelmator
Happy birthday, Pixelmator! Today, it’s been five years since the first Pixelmator version was released. Yay!
And you know what? We were so focused on the future, planning releases of our beloved image editing app, that we hardly noticed the time passing by.
Today let’s look back and see all those small steps that made Pixelmator what it is now.
Pixelmator was born on the September 25, 2007. It was a beginning of something very special for us.
Pixelmator 1.1 Kitten
Around 100 new effects made Pixelmator a real effects machine. You loved it!
Pixelmator 1.2 Draftsman
Rulers, Grid, Snapping, color adjustment tools, and more. Can you imagine Pixelmator without these features now?
Pixelmator 1.3 Tempo
The codename speaks for itself: Major performance improvements, easy to use click-and-drag tools, and more.
Pixelmator 1.4 Sprinkle
All about brushes, with the new brush engine and many more details enhanced. It was an incredible update.
Pixelmator 1.5 Spider
Save for Web feature, Slice Tool, and many more features and tools. Brilliant update for web developers.
Pixelmator 1.6 Nucleus
Performance improvements, 64-bit support, layer groups and more. Boy, this update made Pixelmator really fast!
Pixelmator 2.0 Chameleon
New look and feel, shapes, retouch tools and many more enhancements truly made it the best image editing app.
Pixelmator 2.1 Cherry

It’s absolutely amazing to see how much has changed in just five years: so many features, tools, improvements. I would like to say a special thanks to each and every one of you without whom Pixelmator couldn’t have happened. Thanks to you we can continue to do what we love. And because we love it so much, I can assure you, there are many great things to come.
