Pixelmator Announce Version 2: Coming In The Summer

Pixelmator, probably your favorite Photoshop alternative, today announced Pixelmator 2.0 Chameleon.

Pixelmator 2.0, to be released later in the summer, will feature improved drawing tools, content-aware technology-based fills, a healing tool, new retouching tools, a smudge tool, and more.

If you purchase Pixelmator before the 2.0 release, you will be able to save $30 by availing of a free upgrade.

Pixelmator 2.0 will be available exclusively on the Mac App Store for $59 later this summer. For now, anyone can purchase the currently available version of Pixelmator on the Mac App Store for $29 and receive a free upgrade of Pixelmator 2.0 once it is released.

Buy Pixelmator from the Mac App Store, and check out their teasing sneak peak here.

Some of the key enhancements include:

A breakthrough new Content-Aware Fill technology in Pixelmator allows users to magically get rid of unwanted elements in images, as if they never existed. By using either the new Healing Tool or the selection tools, one can select wrinkles, blemishes, image damage or any other details in images, then let Pixelmator smartly and seamlessly fill the selected area with similar nearby image content.

The new retouching tools in Pixelmator include a Sponge Tool, for adding more color or taking color away from areas of an image by painting on them; Burn and Dodge tools, for naturally darkening or lightening areas of an image; and a Red Eye Tool for easily—either automatically or manually— fixing the red-eye effect in images.

The new Smudge Tool allows smearing paint, or rubbing out blemishes or any other details in images, simply by using any brush tip, as realistically as using one’s fingers.

Other new features of Pixelmator 2.0 Chameleon include a cleaner and easier-to-use interface, a new Eyedropper Tool, a new info bar, a convenient tool options bar, a fully customizable Tools palette, a new Type Tool, a Pixel Tool, and a number of minor improvements.
