The Pixelmator team has been hard at work improving their lightweight Photoshop alternative for the major 2.0 update. New features including content-aware fill, sponge, healing, and smudge tools, and more have been added to make the image editor even more competitive. Lion specific enhancements including full-screen, Versions, and Auto-save are baked in as well.
The Pixelmator Team today released Pixelmator 2.0, the latest version of its groundbreaking image editing tool that provides everything needed to create, edit, and enhance still images. Pixelmator 2.0 features new drawing and retouching tools, Content-Aware Fill, a Healing Tool, a Smudge Tool, and more. Designed from the ground up for OS X Lion, Pixelmator 2.0 now supports Full Screen, Versions and Auto Save, and is available from the Mac App Store for introductory $29.99.
The application is available through the Mac App Store for the introductory price of $29.99. If you originally bought Pixelmator 1.x before the MAS was released, then sadly, you’ll have to repurchase to receive the update.
