Does anyone have experience with the app "Pixelmator Pro". I have ordered a MacBook Air M1 with 8GB RAM. I am wondering if the amount of memory is enough for occasional image editing. A slight reduction in speed would not bother me. Only if the program crashes completely would that be a problem. Maybe someone can give me an assessment.

I´d say: Better get 16GB. Because it´s unified RAM means it´s supporting the whole system-on-chip (SOC) and you don´t want RAM Swapping which will stress the SSD. I´m on a M1MacMini2020/16GB and while I´m just have Safari open with 4 threads plus ActivityMonitor to check RAM usage it occupies already ca 9GB without doing any workload right now. Just my 2¢ of course but you made your decision already.
