I do say!!!! This looks more than promising!

Six more days! Not even a week!

Six days! Well, you sexy thing!

The Pixelmator Team are revolutionising things!

What is Adobe doing these days?

Nightmares, I guess.

A new morning is entering the creative universe!

The UI is looking very polished!
Any clue to upgrade pricing? I only purchased version 1 in the App Store on 31/8/2020. Tad frustrating if I have to pay out again already.

Eeee! That sounds great! I would not mind paying for the upgrade. But Free is good too.

Looks promising and I would not be surprised if it is.
(Hope the update goes with less difficulties than Big Sur . . . )

That would be a relief. But where did they state that?

A lot of threads, facebook and I think in the faqs.

Ah, and on the homepage at the bottom.

Thanks Andrius & the team. Just read the full release notes there are some exciting new features for all users.
Looking forward to this.

Yay! Very excited as always!

Here is a list of reasons NOT to use Pixelmator Pro:

by leonfabr What is new besides updated UI?
Good point, that it is more customisable, supports M1 and Big Sur - it has more effects and adjustments but rather then that hard to see.

Maybe they worked in the background to optimise the code for the future to implement new features more easily?

Hard to say...

but the UI change is really nice. They will build from there.

Actually I have looked into it a bit more. It doesnt seem so much but the fine tuning, new presets, apple silicon and big sur stuff is a lot of work I think its great that they did it now they can build from there.

I would love a clarity tool, local and adjustment layers, a font slider and even more ML stuff. I guess they will add stuff for artists, too.

It feels really refreshing the new 2.0.

I cannot wait for this. So SO excited. It looks incredible.

Two additional requests:

- Pixelmator Photo preset options
- Clarity tool

Thanks so much for all your hard work!

And I hope the cloning tool will be refined. Now it is almost impossible to clone minute parts because of the extremely clumsy circle...

Anyway, greatly looking forward to this! Wish I could finally leave Photoshop completely aside!

THREE DAYS LEFT!!!

PS/ Today I saw that the cloning tool was perfect... WOW!

I hope they’ve been working on ML powered masking to instantly mask people and other objects, similar to Resolve 17, and in addition worked on content aware scaling line Photoshop, for a 2.x release.

The more I work with Pixelmator Pro 2.0, the more satisfied I get.

ONLY, if the text tool could be side by side with the color adjustment and effects tools and on EVERY workspace. I often want to write something on a photo I have edited...

I really like the new update. New design is gorgeous. I love the customisation of the tool bar - I figured out how I can group tools together.

I miss the image and canvas resize button as well as ML super resolution button in the tool bar as well if I want to use apple photos.

You mean you have found a way on how to move individual tools, like the ’T’ for instance? Please give me a lesson!

Here you go:

If you want them to group together you click on one and drag it on to of an other one in the tool bar - it will be highlighted...
