Pixelmator 2.2 – Blueberry

Pixelmator, my photo and graphics weapon of choice, just got a really nice update. There are a lot of new features in this update.

  • There are shape tools and pallets, with dozens of built in shapes. (Watch the video)

  • There is an intriguing new “convert text into shape” feature, to apply apply gradients, shadows, strokes, or even reshape individual letters.

  • There is a new paint selection tool to speed up selections with a brush stroke. (Watch the video)

  • They’ve also added a light leak effect for retro-illuminated images. (Watch the video)

It’s a free upgrade if you’ve already purchased the app. If not, I recommend getting a copy of Pixelmator. It is a really powerful photo tool for just $15.
