The New Paint Selection Tool in Pixelmator 2.2 Blueberry
In Pixelmator 2.2 Blueberry, we have one more treat packed for you: The new Paint Selection Tool. It’s an awesome tool that makes selecting anything within your images really simple and enjoyable. You paint as if using the Brush Tool, only you are not painting but rather selecting.
Technically speaking, we’ve implemented a few tricks that enabled the tool to “read” the area within the stroke and then, judging by the texture and colors of it, select entire objects for you automatically. We’ve spent quite some time crafting it, but we believe the tool was really worth it.
The all-new Paint Selection Tool is part of the awesome, free, and soon-to-be-released Pixelmator 2.2 Blueberry major update.
