"An amazingly bad piece of software"

July 31, 2009  |  By MDBritt

 |  Version: Pixelmator 1.2


It has a pretty little window that pops up when you select a tool or undo a command.


Missing basic tools (e.g. Cropping), crashes frequently, horrible text handling (when it works at all), doesn't provide feedback on tool settings, doesn't handle transparencies right (especially when you rotate), has a terrible "fill" command, etc.


If you want to get any work done, avoid this tool. I bought it because I didn't want to bite the bullet and pay the (steep) price for Photoshop. Bad idea. Unless you have zero budget and all the time in the world to kill on meaningless projects, this software will end up *costing* you far more than Photoshop despite the difference in price.

"Thanks for nothing--avoid this product!!"

June 13, 2008  |  By CherryTop2007

 |  Version: Pixelmator 1.2


I initially thought the program might be too simple to do anything impressive, but after I played with it awhile, I liked it's capabilities and it's not overly complex.


This so-called "demo" though, sucks. I worked for 4 hours getting used to the program, fiddling with it using a photo I NEVER thought I'd be able to clean up, and re-opened it this morning to discover "CREATED WITH PIXELMATOR" stamped across the front. Really pissed me off--what kind of demo is that?!? So I tried it again with another image and guess what? Now the image has disappeared entirely from the file I'd been saving on.

I'd rather spend an entire year saving up $1,000 bucks for Photoshop than give Pixelmator $59 for a license -- based on this crappy demo experience alone.
