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.

ML Enhance

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

The machine learning-powered ML Enhance intelligently fine-tunes 37 individual color adjustments to give you the best starting point for making your own creative edits to a photo. Trained on over 20 million professional photos and integrated via Core ML 2, ML Enhance makes adjustments based on the actual contents of a photo, taking care of all the little details that go into a great photo, such as white balance, exposure, shadow, and highlight detail, and leaves the creative finishing touches to you.

  • 5 ML-Powered Adjustments

    Along with ML Enhance, Pixelmator Pro has five individual machine learning powered adjustments — White Balance, Lightness, Hue & Saturation, Selective Color, and Color Balance. Each adjustment intelligently improves photos using the knowledge from the 20-million-photo dataset, delivering stunning automatic enhancement.

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.
