Brushes-

Pixelmator offers a wide variety of brush types to get that right touch for your image.

  • Pencil
  • Crayon
  • Marker
  • Ink
  • Paint
  • Spray
  • Watercolor
  • Smudge

Each with a collection of styles within each category. The design & technology that goes into their brushes are unparalleled. My favorite for example the water color brushes allow for great blending of colors & make edges that are defined & detailed.

Here’s an example of an image thrown together using the watercolor brushes. Notice how the colors overlap & blend into each other rather than featuring harsh edges. That level of detail is what makes pixelmators brushes so great.
