New Interface

Designed to put full focus on what matters most — your images.

Pixelmator Pro features a new, user-centered interface that strips away all unnecessary ornamentation. Designed exclusively for working with images, the elegant single-window design allows you to focus on your compositions in a beautiful and intuitive editing environment. And meticulous attention to the smallest details means even simple edits become more engaging.

  • Single Window

    The elegant single-window interface puts all the tools you need in just the places you expect to find them. With just one window for all your tools and the image you’re working on, image editing in Pixelmator Pro is simpler than ever.

  • User Centered

    A carefully crafted, user-centered interface means Pixelmator Pro feels intuitive to anyone, whether you’re just starting out with image editing, or you’re a seasoned pro. Thanks to its simple workflow, Pixelmator Pro is both easy to learn and easy to use.

  • Refined Design

    Pixelmator Pro features a clean and refined design, without any clutter and unnecessary ornamentation, such as shadows, separators, lines, and other decorative elements. A more consistent look and feel makes editing images in Pixelmator Pro both easy and intuitive.

  • Dark Interface

    A beautiful dark interface makes your images the centre of attention, putting tools and the interface itself in the background. Created exclusively for working with images, it allows you to focus on your content in a professional image editing environment.

  • Streamlined Toolbar

    A beautiful streamlined toolbar frees up even more space for your images while keeping all the most important document controls easily accessible.

  • Translucency

    Translucent parts of Pixelmator Pro give you a glimpse of your image if any areas are hidden behind the interface.

  • Built for Retina

    Pixelmator Pro is designed exclusively for the high-resolution Retina display. Because it takes advantage of the additional resolution available on Retina, every detail appears sharp and vibrant. And a clean and refined design means Pixelmator Pro also looks great on non-Retina displays.

  • Interface Efficiency

    In Pixelmator Pro, every bit of screen real estate is used efficiently. No matter how large your screen is, all your tools are easily accessible and your entire image is easily visible. So Pixelmator Pro looks great on any display — from the smallest MacBook to the largest 5K iMac.

  • Animations

    Subtle, meaningful animations make even simple edits more engaging.

  • Scrolling Text Fields

    Change the value of a text field by scrolling inside it and see all your changes live. Not only is scrolling faster, just like elsewhere in macOS, the harder you scroll the more momentum there is — so it’s also more fun.

  • Effect Rope

    The Effect Rope makes it easier to keep track of every effect applied to your composition. It shows you an effect is currently editable and lets you customize the effect directly in your image.

  • Attention to Detail

    Pixelmator Pro has been designed and developed with a meticulous attention to every detail — from the way each tool works to the look of the icon. Even the About Pixelmator Pro window has something special about it.

Viewing Experience

First, the best image viewer ever.

The best image editor starts from being the best image viewer. Thanks to a groundbreaking Zoom Engine, Pixelmator Pro delivers an incredibly responsive and smooth image viewing experience. So you can navigate around compositions large and small with no perceptible delay. And your images always look crisp and clear, no matter what zoom level you view them at.

  • Fast and Responsive

    The technical engineering behind the Zoom Engine is seriously sophisticated. By harnessing the power of the graphics processor in your Mac, Pixelmator Pro lets you zoom and scroll with no perceptible delay, even in large and complex images.

  • Zoom Quality

    The Pixelmator Pro Zoom Engine includes a range of technical advancements for displaying images at different zoom levels, so your images always look crisp and clear, no matter how much you adjust the zoom.

  • Smart Scroll

    When editing a document that’s especially long or wide, Pixelmator Pro centers it, letting you easily scroll up and down or left and right, without accidentally hiding too much of the image beyond the canvas. And if you zoom in, you can also scroll past the canvas to easily work on the edges of your document.

  • Classic Zoom Tool

    Use the classic Zoom Tool to easily focus on a very precise section of your document by dragging over the area on which you want to zoom in.

Hidden Interface

Keep an eye on the big picture.

Hide every part of the Pixelmator Pro interface to get the clearest possible view of your image and work on it without any distractions.
