Set Photos Extension preferences
You can choose whether or not you’d like to preserve your nondestructive edits — such as layers, adjustments, and effects — in your Photos library after you edit an image using the Pixelmator Pro extension in macOS Photos.
Set Photos extension preferences
- Choose Pixelmator Pro > Preferences (from the Pixelmator Pro menu at the top of your screen).
- In the Extension tab, do one of the following:
- Turn on "Preserve nondestructive edits" to preserve any layers, adjustments, effects, and other nondestructive changes you make using the Pixelmator Pro extension and they will be restored the next time you open images edited using the extension.
- Turn off "Preserve nondestructive edits" to discard any layers, adjustments, effects, and other nondestructive changes, and save the final, edited image to your library.
You can choose to save the Pixelmator Pro document with the nondestructive changes to iCloud or the Pictures folder on your Mac. If iCloud is turned off, the documents will be automatically saved to Pictures.
