When I edit photos, the application takes up more space. We are talking about it can occupy more than 10GB. All this taking into account that I have no files on the iPad. I delete them, both the original photos, as well as the files with the extension .photo

Therefore, after finishing editing 10 photos, I have to uninstall the application and reinstall it to free up that space.

I contacted support and they told me to wait for some new update to fix this.
When do you plan to release an update to solve this?

Hey there! Could you check if you're running the latest version of Pixelmator Photo? There should have been a memory-related fix in v1.5.1 so it would be interesting to know if you can still reproduce the issue using that version. If the issue persists, a screen recording of how it looks like on your iPad would be a big help. You can either share it here or send it to us at Thanks in advance!

Same issue here. No photos linked or saved as .Photo. The size of the Documents and Data on iPad is 5GB. I am on 1.5.1
