Pixelmator - Powerful Core Image-based image editor
Authored by: wack on May 05, '08 08:59:57AM

Personally, I think Pixelmator is a bit pants. I got it as part of the last MacHeist, and I would NEVER, EVER pay $60 for it.

In particular, the Automator actions are incredibly slow compared to Preview actions, for example. And the GUI is a weird, semi-transparent black. Black would be okay, but as it is, the transparency makes it hard to make out the tool palette unless you're working on top of a plain desktop, and much more confusing than it need be.

These may be relatively minor niggles, but a killer is file size. Perhaps I'm doing it wrongly, but any JPEGs I make in Pixelmator are massive compared to those generated by other programs using similar settings.

Spend the $60 on beer and install the Gimp. Better software, much better price.
