Where can I get Photomator?
Photomator is available to download from the App Store on Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Vision Pro. You can choose monthly or yearly subscription plans, or if you prefer to purchase Photomator and keep it, a one-time purchase license is also available. To check the Photomator pricing in your region, visit its official page on App Store
Is there a free trial available for Photomator?
Yes! When you download Photomator for the first time, you get 3 free edits (or 10 if you are an early supporter or Pixelmator Pro user). On Mac, you can see how many free edits you have left in the Photomator toolbar. To extend your trial period, you can opt for the yearly subscription, which also includes a bonus 7-day trial at no extra cost.
Note: If you sign up for a 7-day trial and you don't want to continue with the yearly subscription, make sure to cancel it at least 24 hours before the trial ends. If you do it later, you may be charged the full subscription fee.

Do I need both Photomator and Pixelmator Pro?
Photomator and Pixelmator Pro work great independently for specific editing workflows, but they have also been designed to work beautifully together.

How does Photomator manage photo libraries across Mac and iOS devices?
Photomator is designed from the ground up to bring a seamless way to browse and organize photos on your Mac, iPhone, and iPad. With its deep integration with Photos, Photomator automatically syncs any edits you make in the photo browser with your Photos library, while full support for the native Apple file system lets you edit photos anywhere on your device, external drives, or cloud services. On Mac, switch between Photos and Files browsers by simply clicking the pop-up menu in the toolbar or pressing the X key, or tap Settings (the gear icon) on iPhone or iPad.
Thanks to full integration with Apple Photos and iCloud Drive, edits sync seamlessly across all your devices and platforms whenever you’re using Photomator.
Does Photomator support Family Sharing?
Yes! You can share your purchased copy of Photomator with your family members for free if you have a family sharing group set up on your App Store account. If you don’t have Family Sharing set up, visit Apple Support
website to learn how.
I’m a Pixelmator Pro user, do I get Photomator with a discount?
Pixelmator Pro and Photomator are two independent apps, so users of Pixelmator Pro won't automatically receive access to Photomator for Mac. However, as the two apps were designed to work together and complement each other in design and photography workflows, for a limited time, we're offering Photomator for Mac with a 30% discount to all Pixelmator Pro users. To learn more about the offer, visit the official Photomator page on the App Store
Which RAW formats does Photomator support?
Photomator features full support for RAW images from over 650 cameras
including compressed Fujifilm RAWs. If your camera is relatively new and is not yet supported by Apple, support will most likely be added in future updates and Photomator will be able to take advantage of it automatically. You can also let us know which camera models you’d like Photomator to support by filing out this form
and sharing a sample RAW file with us. This way, we can work on adding support for more cameras in the future.
