Pixelmator 3.3.2 Update
Pixelmator 3.3.2 is out, featuring lots of new stuff — Photos app support, Force Touch trackpad support, jaw-dropping Repair Tool enhancements, and much more.
We simply love the new Photos app for Mac. That’s why we are excited to let you know that you can now access your Photos library right from the Photo Browser in Pixelmator. It looks good and works great.
The new Force Touch trackpad support is also here for you to play with. You can now paint with pressure sensitivity using a Force Touch trackpad on the new MacBook and MacBook Pro. The force sensors detect how much pressure you’re applying, and Pixelmator changes the size of your brush. It feels just like painting with a stylus.
Finally, we are very proud of the unique, incredibly powerful Repair Tool in Pixelmator for Mac, which is now up to 5 times faster. Since we’ve spent so much time perfecting the tech behind this tool, we had to make a video on how it works:
Stunning, isn’t it? If you don’t believe what you just saw (which wouldn’t be much of a surprise), go ahead and update Pixelmator to 3.3.2. Then, download the photo you just saw in the video and try it for yourself. You can download it here.
The Repair Tool is one of our many fun and interesting secret scientific projects. We even used the new Mac Pro (because it’s extremely fast and powerful) to automatically improve our Repair technology algorithms.
Since there are numerous ways to repair any area of an image, our Mac Pro worked incredibly hard for months to find the best algorithm. It analyzed millions of possible ways to repair areas of various complexity, and then it compared the speed and quality ratio of each final result. Lastly, our Mac Pro—this is awesome—derived a repairing strategy that gives the optimal result every single time. How smart is that?
In other words, the new Mac Pro did a great job. And because it did so well, you can now wipe away unwanted objects in Pixelmator for Mac extremely quickly and with superb quality.
Enjoy the new Pixelmator update and please remember that we feel great when you let us know what you think about our work.
We’ll talk to you very soon about some awesome new stuff. Thanks.
