Aperture 3 for just $79 isn’t the only great photography software deal in Apple’s Mac App Store.
Pixelmator is a Photoshop-like application that sells for about half the price of Photoshop Elements while offering a mind-boggling array of image-altering tools, including the ability to make tweaks in layers.
I’ve been playing around with Pixelmator for the past few days and I’ve been very impressed. It’s a snap to use if you’ve ever played around with Photoshop, it operates lighting-fast on my Macbook (early 2008 so I’m not exactly state of the art here), and it does just about everything Photoshop does at a fraction of the price.
So if you’re on a budget but in the market for a photo-editing application, I highly recommend Pixelmator – at less than $30, the bang-for-the-buck is simply enormous.
