Shapes

Resolution independent, high quality vector graphics.

Vector shapes are graphics created using two simple elements — points and curves. But you can personalize those shapes with any combination of styles, adding color or gradient fills, strokes, shadows, and reflections. You can also add, subtract, and intersect multiple shapes at once to create complex graphics, advanced illustrations, and all kinds of designs, from web sites to posters and everything in between. And vector shapes are resolution-independent, so curves always look smooth and edges always stay sharp, no matter how much you resize each shape.

  • Resolution Independent

    Resize shapes as much as you want, keeping every curve perfectly smooth and every edge razor sharp.

  • Straight Lines

    Draw straight-lines by clicking to add individual anchor points.

  • Curves

    Add custom curves by dragging as you add an anchor point. After you complete your shape, you can also drag the direction lines that appear, precisely adjusting the shape of the curve.

  • Style

    Customize the style of your shape by adding one or even multiple Fills, Strokes, Shadows, Inner Shadows, or Reflections, and change the Blending Mode and Opacity of each shape.

  • Corner Radius

    Change the rounding of corners by adjusting Corner Radius.

  • Shape Modes

    Choose from four different shape modes to combine shapes — Add, Subtract, Intersect, and Exclude.

  • Convert Selections into Shapes

    Instantly create custom shapes from selections.

Pen

Precisely draw vector shapes by adding individual anchor points.

The Pen Tool lets you draw custom vector shapes with full control over the shape outline. Each time you click or drag, a new point is added to your path, so your shape has anchor points in the exact places you want them. Which makes it more straightforward to further refine each point after you complete the shape.

Freeform Pen

Freely draw vector shapes as if with a pencil on paper.

When you draw with the Freeform Pen Tool, Pixelmator Pro creates a vector path for you, automatically adding points and curves according to the path you draw. So drawing vector shapes is practically like drawing with a pencil on paper.

Smart Shapes

Add and quickly customize pre-made Smart Shapes.

With a collection of pre-made Smart Shapes, you can quickly add star and various polygon shapes, arrows, speech bubbles, and other shapes to your compositions, then customize them in any way you want. For example, you can adjust the number of points in a shape, change a rectangle’s corner radius, customize arrowheads and the tails of speech bubbles, and more, using simple controls right on the canvas.

Shapes Palette

The Shapes palette is where you’ll find your entire collection of shapes, including the beautiful pre-made shapes that come with Pixelmator Pro.
