• Pixelmator for iOS Updated With Dynamic Touch, Tool Precision, Fixes & New Features

    On Tuesday, Pixelmator for iOS received an update that added a slew of new features for photo-editing to the application and refined many existing features. The latest version of Pixelmator, version 2.0.2, is available in the App Store right now both for existing users and for those that want to grab the application for the first time.

    In the latest version the Pixelmator team is introducing what they call Dynamic Touch, which allows you to adjust the stroke of any retouch tool by adjusting the way your finger meets the screen. Using the tip of your finger leads to a thinner stroke, while using a much fatter part of your finger leads to a thicker stroke.

    Moreover, Pixelmator notes that the Repair tool has been made more precise and nearly 5 times faster at rendering results. Below, you can view a full list of the changes and improvements to Pixelmator for iOS in version 2.0.2:

    Improvements and bug fixes

    • The Blur effect lets you apply more blur to your images.
    • We’ve enhanced the look of the Pinch and Bump effects, so now they look even better.
    • The Effects preview thumbnails of very wide images were too wide. Fixed.
    • Now you can Cancel or Apply an effect with the settings popover open.
    • The Clone tool now starts cloning grouped layers when and where you ask it to.
    • The Retouch tools now work just as they should on layers with Lock Alpha on.
    • The rhombus shape looks much more crisp.
    • The Font Size setting had no effect on a few fonts. Fixed.
    • The values of the Color Balance settings used to stay the same after applying Undo. Fixed.
    • Previously, after canceling color adjustments for text, shape or grouped layers, you were still able to Undo the adjustments that you never made. Fixed.
    • Removed Undo Image Size after creating a new Custom Image.
    • The Replace Photo popover is now displayed properly when customizing a template at a high zoom level.
    • We’ve made it easier to zoom the canvas into Fit and Full-Screen views.
    • Your canvas now also fits the screen nicely after rotating the device with the Tools popover open.
    • Browsing the Image Gallery is easier, when you can start swiping from the Name or Date labels, too.
    • Images copied from Messages and other text-based apps are now pasted properly.
    • Shapes with gradients created with Pixelmator for iOS look just the same on Pixelmator for Mac.
    • Now you can see Pixelmator document thumbnails in the iCloud Drive Document Picker.
    • Once in a while, the Photo Editing extension used to stop responding while saving changes. We found the reason and fixed it.
    • The Photo Editing extension used to save the changes you made, even if you made no changes. Fixed.
    • The app used to quit unexpectedly when you tried to enter Effects while editing a very wide image. Not anymore.
    • We’ve improved the stability of the app when opening PSD documents with custom fonts.
    • The Low Disk Space alert is now displayed only when you launch the app.
    • Once in a while, the app used to stop responding after running in the background. Not anymore.
    • The app would sometimes stop responding when opening an image from another app or via Handoff. We fixed this.

    Improvements and fixes to Pixelmator for iPad:
    • We’ve updated to the latest Adonit stylus SDK for a better painting experience.
    • Replaced the Brush Tool and Eraser Tool stylus shortcut options with one Toggle Eraser option.
    • Fixed an issue with Stylus Shortcuts, which sometimes used to perform two actions at the same time.
    • First Writing Style was available but non-selectable. Fixed.

    Other performance and stability improvements, minor bug fixes.
    Pixelmator is a $4.99 download from the App Store at this link, and is a universal binary for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, but if you're already an existing user, then the update will be waiting for you under the Updates tab in the App Store application.
