Focus on color improvements: Pixelmator 1.1.4
We are very happy to let you know about the release of Pixelmator 1.1.4 since it features fixes for one of the most important functions of Pixelmator – color issues – some of which have been a big headache for us.
But not anymore. Working on version 1.1.4, our main task was to repair color shifting issues, improve the Eyedropper tool, and enhance the precision of adjustment tools in Pixelmator, and we accomplished our goals. Oh, and thanks to your feedback, we also replaced the cursors, making them much more visible but still in the Mac OS X style.
Just a few more notes about other improvements for the many people out there who are interested:
• When opening PDF documents, you will see the Cover Flow window, which will let you choose the exact pages. (If we get some requests for a feature to specify the resolution when opening a page,we will add it.)
• A contextual menu for Eyedropper is now available and includes Copy (color) as HEX.
• When using painting tools, you can temporarily switch to Eyedropper by pressing the Option key on your keyboard.
• And use your shift key to paint a straight line with any of the painting tools. (You just said, “Finally!” Right?)
All the other changes are bug fixes (over 40) focusing mainly on color improvements and stability.
Download version 1.1.4, and have fun immediately.
