The Painting Engine in Pixelmator Pro was designed and built for maximum quality and maximum speed. So painting is incredibly responsive without sacrificing quality.
Zooming and Panning
The brand new Zoom Engine in Pixelmator Pro delivers fast and fluid zooming and panning. Which means the entire painting experience, including navigating around your image, feels super smooth.
When painting, you can quickly change the Size and Softness of the Paint Tool using a handy shortcut menu — simply Control-click the canvas to see it.
Use layers to nondestructively build up your paintings piece by piece.
Mask, Select, Retouch
The painting tools aren’t just great for painting. You can also use them to retouch your photos, edit layer masks, or even brush precise selections in Quick Mask Mode.
Pixelmator Pro features intuitive and easy-to-remember keyboard shortcuts for all the settings and tools you use most often while painting.
A new cursor design in Pixelmator Pro tells you more about the Softness of a brush. When you increase Softness, a dashed outline shows you exactly where the soft edge starts.
The Paint Tool lets you paint with over 20 Blending Modes. So you can blend your brushstrokes with your image in a range of distinctive ways, create dazzling special effects, or experiment with different styles.
