• Pixelmator Releases Version 3.2 "Sandstone"

    The Pixelmator team recently revealed the newest iteration of their popular Photoshop alternative for Mac which brings a number of enhancements that now allow users to work with 16 bits of color per channel, easily remove unwanted objects from images and lock specific layers. The update’s landmark feature is the new Repair Tool, which the company says has been “redeveloped from the inside out.” The tool allows users to simply paint over an object that they would like to remove from an image with broad strokes. The software will then remove that portion and automatically stitch together a replacement background.

    Users have three options with the new repair tool: quick, standard and advanced repairs. Thanks to several algorithmic enhancements, the Pixelmator team says the new tool uses four times less memory than its predecessor.

    The group has also added support for working with 16 bits of color per channel, a feature now available on every Mac. In addition, layers can now be locked individually and users have access to a new Convert Selection into Shape option. The company also promises “a number of improvements, user interface enhancements and fixes related to stability and reliability.” Pixelmator cofounder Saulius Dalide said the following in a release regarding the matter:

    Packed with incredible features, Pixelmator 3.2 Sandstone delivers the most empowering image editing experience Pixelmator fans have ever had. Redeveloped from the ground up Repair Tool, 16-bits per channel support and Lock Layers feature make Pixelmator an excellent image editor that is just as fun and easy-to-use as it is powerful.
    Those of you interested in Pixelmator can download version 3.2 for $29.99 from the App Store.
