    "Thought it was fine until..."

    June 18, 2012  |   By Mister-Jeff


    Cheapish, Simplish.


    I was quite enjoying this little app until it simply disappeared a valuable image.

    No warning, no nothing - there one moment, gone the next.

    I used Pixelmator for the first time in a couple of months this morning - and the same thing happened, luckily with an easily-replaceable image.


    Random image-loss is unforgivable, particularly with Lion, which purports to autosave as you go along - a trait I loathe btw, along with the incomprehensible decision to ditch 'save as' and pursuit of eye candy in place of functionality.

    I cannot tell whether this is a bug or not - neither does Pixelmator, apparently.

    All Pixelmator-users beware - use ONLY with dupe images.
