Pixelmator Pro now supports AI and EPS files from Adobe Illustrator

Pixelmator Pro introduces support for Adobe Illustrator (AI) and Illustrator EPS files, letting you open these files with all their layers, including text and shape layers, fully preserved, and easily edit them in Pixelmator Pro. Additionally, this update includes performance improvements, ensuring an even faster image editing experience when switching between tools and opening documents in Pixelmator Pro. In preparation for the upcoming holidays, we’ve also included a stunning collection of holiday templates in Pixelmator Pro.

AI File Support

Pixelmator Pro now supports native Illustrator data in AI documents. This means that when you open AI files in Pixelmator Pro, all layers and layer groups are preserved, allowing you to seamlessly edit shapes and even text layers. This enhancement greatly expands the capabilities of Pixelmator Pro, letting you open AI files without the need for Adobe Illustrator and convert AI files into other formats when needed.

Illustrator EPS File Support

Pixelmator Pro now offers full support for Illustrator EPS files, which is another file format produced by Adobe Illustrator. While this format is older and no longer supported on macOS 14 Sonoma, it’s still commonly used for sharing vector graphics. With Illustrator EPS file support in Pixelmator Pro, you can open EPS files with all the layers intact and easily edit shapes, text layers, and more. Additionally, you can use the Convert Image action in the Shortcuts app to effortlessly convert EPS files into various other formats.

Improved Performance

We are committed to enhancing your experience with Pixelmator Pro, and as part of our ongoing efforts, we are introducing further performance improvements. This means you can now enjoy quicker tool switching and faster document opening, making Pixelmator Pro work at lightning-fast speeds!
