Hi, I would love to ask some question about the export algorithm of Pix Pro, because I find it awesome. Its not a feature neither a bug.

Why is the export algorithm so awesome in Pix Pro? Thanks

There are three sections in Pixelmator Pro:
Home / Pixelmator Pro
Home / Pixelmator Pro / Bugs
Home / Pixelmator Pro / Feature Requests

I use the first of these as a 'General' area.

Re: export. I'm still waiting for the ability to scale the image at export.

@St3f oh I have overlooked the normal one. Thanks for pointing that out.

I have seen that thread. It I export the image it makes it very small and it does not lose much quality. What is the image to scale export feature? I mean when do you use it?

Hi ResLes.

If I'm working on an image for both print and web, I might be working on an image that is 5000px × 5000px. When I export the image for use on the web I might want to export at 500px × 500px, but still keep the Pixelmator Pro file at 5000px × 5000px.

At the moment I've got two options:
* Export at 5000px × 5000px and resize after export using Preview or something like that.
* Resize the whole file to 500px × 500px, export and then undo the resize.

I want a third option where, when I go to export, I can choose the size of the file to export. That way I don't need to resize outside of the app or risk the situation where I forget to undo the size change.

On that note, I've moved this topic to the Pixelmator Pro "General" (top-level) forum.

@ st3f

Valide point! I always pressed command + Z but in terms of usability that (could forget to do it) is a necessary thing!
