Pixelmator On Sale In App Store

by Mike on January 25, 2011

Aperture 3 for just $79 isn’t the only great photography software deal in Apple’s Mac App Store.

Smith Micro’s excellent Pixelmator photo-editing application is available for just $29.99, which saves you $10 off Amazon’s price.

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.

It’s rated 4/5 stars on Amazon (VERY high for a photo-editing program), while Apple App store users rate it 4.5/5, making it one of the more-acclaimed photo-editing software packages out there.

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.
