My thanks to the Pixelmator team for sponsoring a series of upcoming content this week on Digitaldojos and their amazing Pixelmator app that is available for iOS & OS X. Pixelmator provides a highly affordable & advanced editing platform filled with tools & a simple UI to navigate through.
Available on Mac OS X, iPhone, and iPad this is simply one of the best image editing apps you can get for desktop or mobile. Awarded the Mac App Store of the year in 2011 & iPad App of the year in 2014.
As I have a whole series of graphic design content coming up via the Pixelmator app I thought it’d be best to kick off the campaign with an overview of the application to get a better feel of what it can do.
Pixelmator for OS X:
The OS X version offers a full fledge image editor that allows for touching up, enhancements, sketching, drawing, and other great effects on photos.
So whether your looking to move objects, paint a masterpiece, or simply retouch a photo you took Pixelmator has you covered. Below is our video overview walking you through the app.
For those who want to edit on the go their iPad & iPhone app is just as feature packed all in a mobile UI. Making even simpler to take a photo & quickly edit afterwards before uploading or saving it into your camera roll.
Aside from just editing on the go you can of course create works of art using Pixelmator’s toolset such as sketching, painting, & various brushes to help you take that burst of inspiration & convert into art. Designed with iOS 8 in mind the mobile app has all sorts of compatibility with features like iCloud Drive, Handoff, etc. Whether your a mobile painter, photographer, or designer Pixelmator has all the tools for you. Check out their own overview video for the iPhone version.
The iPad version is just as great with all the screen real estate to match. Making it easier than ever to create & edit on such a big canvas. Turning the iPad into a great content creation device.
