Today, we’ve released Pixelmator Pro 3.1 which brings support for macOS Ventura, and adds a few more neat features, such as an ultra-fast document opening, initial support for AVIF images, an all-new smooth corner style, individual corner radius editing, and more.

Yay! It was only a couple years ago that I discovered squircles. I was continually fighting with making icon corners match. Now that it's directly supported in Pixelmator I can do away with those imperfect squircles I manually created!

AVIF support is great. Are you planning to implement this file format also for export for web?

Does Pix Pro support metal 3?

Thank you.

Thank you for a great update with speed improvements and AVIF support! Hoping for AVIF-export support in the future :D

Another great update as always. You guys Rock! AVIF-export support would be great if this is the new format we all should be using now for the web.

I am very eager to get Avif but to be honest browsers support and adoption in end users side take a while. I think 3 to 5 years.

We're not planning to add panorama stitching to Pixelmator Pro but we're considering it for Pixelmator Photo. It's a feature for a longer-term future, though.

Yeah makes sense. I’m still using .jpg and .png on most websites using TinyPNG to compress but will be great to have a new, well supported format.

Yes, I have used these plugins in the past, but I use Pix Pro for exporting webp images and can control the image quality quite nicely. 95 of broweser support webp. AVIF will take a few years to be wide spread.

One less plugin for me...
