Pixelmator - Powerful Core Image-based image editor
Authored by: dudemac on May 05, '08 01:01:32PM

As it stands right now, I have not been impressed with any of the core image based editors. There are a few that stand out and I was really hoping this would be one of them. But it is just too unstable for regular work. PS and PSE even the older versions handle large files with no problem. If you happen to have a older video card or an integrated intel chip I would skip it all together. This program has taken my older powerbook out.... hard restart which really never happens. And my mini will hang for ever trying to apply and effect. So even though it handles ps files I would wait until it is a little cleaner running. I would rate it at a solid 5 out of 10. I use graphic programs all the time and this is just not up to snuff. Even gimp, which is free and has so a more contrived interface will smoke Pixelmator in just about every category which is why they really need to work to make the stuff it does do it better than the status PSE so for the price not worth it. I do hope this program gets better as I think there needs to be alternatives to PS and PSE but currently the only thing that looks good to me is Gimp as it is free.
