Hi,
I am really enjoying to edit photos with Pixelmator Photo on my iPad.
The only thing that is really missing for me is a denoising algorythm to
make high ISO images look better.
Is this feature planned for a future release?

We've been working on a denoise feature for quite a while now — it's a tricky project so I can't guarantee when it might be released, but it's not just planned but already in development.

That sounds great!
I was on the verge of getting a subscription for Lightroom, but I guess I will wait...
Will there be a beta version for the feature (TestFlight)?

Possibly but, again, no promises about when that might be — this is a very complex project so it will take time.

Right, but its good to know that the denoising is in the works .

Hi,
I just purchased Pixelmator Photo. I like it, but unfortunately I am not satisfied with RAW import very much. Comparing to Lightroom mobile, it seems to me that some amount of denoising is already automatically done during import. I prefer natural look with grain much more. Partly I can simulate it by adding noise filter, but that is not the way. Do you plan to add some more options, so I would be possible to work with really raw raw in the future? Thanks.

Hi Marek, we have considered revealing the base RAW processing controls but it's a tricky thing to do (almost impossible, actually) due to our nondestructive Repair tool and the fact that we have made it work with RAW photos. We'll reconsider this in the future but, for now, things will probably stay as they are.

Hi.
I just saw that the new Pixelmator Pro “Avalon” just got a ML noise removal
tool.
Will it be ported to Pixelmator Photo?

That's the plan, yes.
