Machine Learning

Intelligent image editing.

Pixelmator Pro uses machine learning to deliver more intelligent image editing. Machine learning is a technology that allows computers to learn and then use that knowledge to perform specific tasks more like a person than a computer. Integrated via the new, blazing fast Core ML framework, machine learning lets Pixelmator Pro detect and understand various features within images. Which makes it possible to create image editing features that are more intelligent than ever before.

Auto Color Adjustments

Automatically perfect the colors of a photo using the power of breakthrough machine learning.

With the new machine learning-powered Auto White Balance, Auto Lightness, and Auto Hue & Saturation adjustments, you can automatically perfect the colors of a photo with just a click. The machine learning algorithm was trained on millions of images to identify the contents of a photo, finding the best colors, lighting, and contrast to make every image stand out. Integrated via Core ML and powered by Metal, the Auto Color Adjustments are stunningly fast and powerful.

  • Auto White Balance

    If a photo is too warm, too cool, or has an unwanted tint, Auto White Balance detects any objects in the image — for example people, trees, or a sky — and intelligently adjusts the white balance to remove any color casts.

  • Auto Lightness

    Use Auto Lightness to automatically perfect the exposure, highlights, shadows, brightness, contrast, and even black point of a photo to make it more compelling and eye-catching.

  • Auto Hue & Saturation

    Auto Hue & Saturation makes photos more vivid and vibrant by using machine learning to adjust hue and saturation.

Automatic Layer Naming

Automatically name every layer in your composition.

Using machine learning, Pixelmator Pro automatically recognizes the contents of images and gives descriptive names to every layer you add to your composition. In real-time. So you don’t end up with a bunch of layers called Layer 1 to Layer 99. Just drop in a photo from your Photos library or elsewhere on your Mac and it will automatically be named for you.

Horizon Detection

Automatically straighten your photos using Horizon Detection.

With the help of machine learning, Pixelmator Pro detects the horizon in images to automatically straighten your shots for you.

Repair Tool

Magically remove objects, recreating image areas with stunning realism.

Featuring an algorithm developed and enhanced using machine learning, the Repair Tool lets you paint over objects to remove them, recreating image areas with stunning realism. It intelligently matches surrounding colors, textures, and even the structure of the image to naturally repair areas. As if by magic.

Quick Selection Tool

Quickly make accurate selections with ease.

The Quick Selection Tool uses machine learning to deliver incredibly accurate object selection, including features such as Direction Awareness, Smart Borders, and Advanced Edge Detection.
