Hi,

I was editing some pictures with and without layers. I can find the split view comparison slider. May I have overlooked something? Where can I find this feature? Thank you.

Are you probably talking about the before+after "switch"?

Hello Ellen,

I am at the beta version for 2.2. They have implemented a new split comparison feature but I can’t find it. I would have thought it would be next to the button on the screenshot you have provided s as this function was already there…

Is this the version using macOS Monterey/Testflight?

I think they did it on TestFlight but I use the previous testing method. I don’t know if they are different. Image

I can´t get a working/valid URL from this site: https://www.pixelmator.com/pro/join-beta/
It seems that this is reserved for iOS users.

Ah, I thought you can’t see the screenshot I have provided. The test number and the description is on it.
On my mobile phone now. No I can’t open it

I think you can send them an email or search on the forum or on google for it.

I have seen in the past that they provided a link in some threads

Will do. If you have still the dmg I think the link is in the info.
I tried Testflight with my developer account but it´s for macOS Monterey - so I´m stuck.

Today an Apple event is scheduled. I reckon they will release Monterey today. Guess 2.2 shortly after

The TestFlight beta is currently only available on macOS Monterey and requires the developer beta of TestFlight, while the App Center one is more universal, though we'll phase it out eventually. But the current Pixelmator Pro beta is the same.

ResLes, you can find the comparison slider by Option-clicking the Show Original button when using the Color Adjustments/Effects/retouching/reshaping tools.

EllenM, if you'd like to join the beta, send your email over to beta@pixelmator.com and we'll add you.

by 安德烈斯 2021-10-18 01:10:41 TestFlight Beta版目前仅在macOS Monterey上可用,需要TestFlight的开发人员测试版,而App Center one更通用,尽管我们最终将逐步淘汰它。但目前的Pixelmator Pro Beta版是一样的。
ResLes,使用颜色调整/效果/润色/重塑工具时,您可以通过按住 Option 键单击“显示原始”按钮来找到比较滑块。
EllenM,如果您想加入测试版,请发送电子邮件至beta@pixelmator.com,我们将添加您。

There's a split comparison button you can add from the list of available toolbar items (View > Customize Toolbar) but I guess it's not the first place you'd normally look for it. Would it be helpful to have this button in the Color Adjustments pane, too? Or somewhere else in the document window?

I have looked in customise tools but as I couldn’t find it there. I haven’t even looked deeper.

Yes please, every where where the show originally image button is.

The original image button is not present in customise toolbar… by the way 😉

Thanks for the tips

No problem and good point about the Show Original button in the toolbar. We'll see what we can do about that, too.
