Pixelmator Pro now has an amazing extension for the Photos app. And unlike most other extensions, the Pixelmator Pro extension is actually the full Pixelmator Pro app integrated fully and completely inside Photos. Transforming your Photos app into a full-featured, professional, layer-based image editor. This quick guide is all about the new extension.

I couldn’t help but notice that there is no mention of Touch Bar support.

The Touch Bar is fully supported in the extension (naturally...).

Hi all
I have just started using the pixelmator pro extension with photos, perhaps I'm being thick but I cannot find the darkening tool anywhere.
Can somebody help ?

It's in the same place as it is in the regular Pixelmator Pro app, grouped together with the Lighten tool — here's a screenshot, which should help locate it: Image

Thanks for the reply, it took a while to work out I needed to right click the tool button to change from Liighten to Darken.
Its a bit of a steep learning curve at the moment.

Fair enough, thanks for the feedback — any other things you're struggling to locate at the moment?

No thanks, I might try right clicking a few of the other tool buttons and see what appears.
