Did you actually try to use Pixelmator in production before rating?
Authored by: alec kinnear on May 08, '08 11:48:46AM

Rob, before you rated Pixelmator 8/10 did you actually try to use it? I mean it looks good and demoes okay but folds completely under use.

Pixelmator is slow and crashy. Saving takes ages, files are huge. There's no Save for Web. I was unable to get any real work done, despite spending nearly a full day on Pixelmator over the course of a few days.

I so much wanted to replace Photoshop. I loathe Adobe's whole approach ($2200 for a single software seat). But Pixelmator won't do it. I wish the guys luck, but they are making claims which just don't hold up.

The whole core image approach is overrated. We have great multicore processors with 4 or 8 or more GB of RAM on board. Why are we offloading 2D to the 128/256/512 MB single core 700 MHz graphics card again?
