Photomator and Pixelmator to be available on Apple Vision Pro from day one

We’re excited to share that Photomator and Pixelmator will be available on Apple Vision Pro starting from February 2nd. From day one, you’ll be able to access Photomator and Pixelmator as iPad apps in the Vision Pro App Store. We’re also planning to continue optimizing them specifically for visionOS to ensure you get the best image editing experience on this powerful new platform.

Compatible as iPad Apps

Our goal is to make sure that all the features found in Photomator and Pixelmator on iPad are readily accessible on Apple Vision Pro right from the start. This means that once you get your hands on Apple Vision Pro, you’ll have full access to all the tools available in our apps, including AI tools and even the Repair tool. And, we’re currently working to bring HDR editing support to Vision Pro, too. 

A significant advantage offered by Apple Vision Pro is its infinite creative space, which means you won’t be restricted by your display size. Even if you’re using a Mac with the largest display or multiple Studio Displays, they can’t replicate the experience of the enormous creative space provided by Apple Vision Pro. When working with Photomator or Pixelmator on Vision Pro, you’ll be able to easily resize your window and work within this vast creative environment with fewer screen size limitations.

Vision Pro as Mac Display

You’ll be able to view even Mac apps, including Pixelmator Pro, on Apple Vision Pro by bringing your Mac into Apple Vision Pro through Mac Virtual Display. This feature brings an exciting possibility to easily view designs from Pixelmator Pro on the enormous Apple Vision Pro display. 

Spatial Photography

The introduction of Apple Vision Pro brings forth an exciting feature – spatial photos. Spatial photography introduces a whole new level of depth to your images, making them appear incredibly lifelike. We’re eagerly looking forward to seeing how spatial photography evolves, as we believe it will provide an incredibly immersive photo-viewing experience.

We are thrilled about the future of spatial computing, and we believe it holds immense potential for designers, photographers, and other creatives. We’re also delighted for Photomator and Pixelmator to be among the first apps you’ll experience on Apple Vision Pro, and we can’t wait to launch them as native visionOS apps in the future!
