Customize the Files browser

In the Pixelmator Photo Files browser, you have the option to view your files as thumbnails, list, or columns which is helpful if you have files nested in multiple folders. Column View also lets you see previews of files and offers access to tools like rotate without even opening a file. You can also sort images by name, date, size, kind, or tags to make them easier to find and organize.
