Is something not working like it should? Let us know.

I use an iMac (27 inches, late 2013) to do design work with the Pixelmator Pro application (version 1.4). This iMac has the graphic Nvidia GeForce GTX 780M 4GB and I am using macOS Catalaina (10.15 19A583).

When I try to update Pixelmator Pro to the latest version (1.5) I get an error that tells me: "Pixelmator Pro is incompatible with the graphics card of this computer"

I would like to know if my mac is going to be incompatible with future Pixelmator Pro updates, or is it a bug?

I have been getting the same error message on my iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2013) as well when trying to update. Mine has a NVIDIA Geforce GT 750M 1 GB. I am also running the latest macOS Catalina 10.15 (19A536g).

Thank You

This is a known issue that we've reported to Apple — it's on its way to being fixed but, if you haven't done so already, could you also shoot us an email about this at with your Apple IDs? Thanks!

Still the same here with late 2013 iMac 27'', GTX 775M, 2GB.

Unfortunately, this issue still hasn't been resolved in macOS Catalina, but we can send anyone affected a directly downloadable version if you could email us at

with the last version of pixelamtor 1.5 and the final version of macOS Calatina the error continues. Is my mac obsolete and I will no longer be able to use pixelamtor pro even though I bought it?

I think it's a very serious problem, since the nvidia GPU is still powerful so that you can use a program like pixelmator pro as with version 1.4.
