There is one thing that I do painstakingly manually: focus-stacking!
With the ultra fast mirror-less cameras, I get/create photos with near to far objects in sharp focus of the same "framing".
However, it would be super convenient if Pixelmator Pro can take advantage of the ML capabilities and the team is able to build this feature.
Thank you for your honest reply.
Is there a way to preform focus stacking manually? By using masks to paint in the in focus parts from each image?
I haven't really had the chance to try it myself but I believe it should definitely be a possible, though a bit time-consuming task. If I understand the masking technique correctly, the time spent on the edit will grow exponentially with each image of a different focal distance that you use. So, it's manageable for one or two images if you want to experiment but it doesn't seem like a very efficient technique in the long run.
It uses layer masking and alignment.
Please work this one out. Essential feature for pros.
All of these requests, like Focus Stacking, are all the trappings of a good photography editor, I know that photography wasn't the charter of the OG Pixelmator, but is this something you're considering? Just a few more photography-centric features would push Pixelmator Pro for Photography from good to Great!
