Pixelmator for iOS 2.4 Cobalt adds full support for iOS 11 and takes advantage of its powerful new multitasking features. With support for Drag and Drop, you can now move images and graphics between Pixelmator for iPad and other apps more easily than ever. You can use Multi-Touch to quickly add multiple images to your composition at once. And you can even move your entire composition into apps like Mail, Messages, and Keynote by simply touching and holding outside the image canvas, then dropping your image into the other app.
With support for HEIF images, Pixelmator for iOS users can now import images shot on the latest iPhone models, including iPhone X. HEIF, the High Efficiency Image File Format, is a new, much more efficient format that reduces file sizes without sacrificing quality and is used as the default on all the latest iPhone models, starting with iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
