Pixelmator Team unveils Pixelmator Pro 2.0 with support for M1-powered Macs

This is Pixelmator Pro 2.0. Redesigned from the ground up, it’s more powerful than ever, more beautiful than ever, and it will be available in just six days, on Thursday, November 19th.

Support for M1-powered Macs

The Pixelmator Pro editing engine is powered by high-performance Metal code, so we can take advantage of the unified memory architecture of the M1 chip to bring you much speedier and much more responsive image editing. Machine learning tasks like ML Super Resolution are now up to a staggering 15 times faster on the new Macs. And, as a Universal app, Pixelmator Pro 2.0 runs natively on both M1 and Intel-based devices, so we’re completely ready for the new era of Mac.

Up to 15x faster ML Super Resolution

macOS Big Sur

Pixelmator Pro 2.0 is also fully compatible with macOS Big Sur with a new unified toolbar and a gorgeous new app icon.

All-New Design

Oh, and there’s one more thing – one more pretty huge new feature. That’s the all-new, more refined, and more modern design. Almost every tool, every menu, and every button has been updated to make the app more intuitive and more fun to use, making it easier for you to be creative. You can now customize the Pixelmator Pro interface, the list of tools, and the toolbar. We’ve also added a new Effects Browser, a new Presets Browser, over 200 beautiful new presets for the Color Adjustment, Effect, Style, Shape, and Gradient tools, and more.

In fact, this update is so big our full release notes didn’t even fit under the App Store’s 4,000 character limit. But you can read them in full on our Updates page!

You can get all the details about what’s coming on November 19th on our all-new Pixelmator Pro page. And make sure to sign up for our newsletter to be notified as soon as the update goes live.
