Pixelmator has been a favorite Photoshop alternative among graphic designers for quite some time. This is because Pixelmator offers most if not all of the features that made Photoshop such a vital tool in the graphic design world for hundreds of dollars cheaper. With Pixelmator, you can edit and spice up images with ease by using different brushes, filters and other tools. Pixelmator is also Retina display compatible and usually receives updates more often than Photoshop.
Personally, I’ve been using Pixelmator for the past few years as I refuse to drop hundreds of dollars on Photoshop. From what I’ve seen, I’m not missing out on much either. With Pixelmator, I don’t have to worry about paying yearly upgrade fees when the latest “creative suite” is released and I know that I’m supporting an independent developer when recommending the application to a friend.
As of now, Pixelmator is on a holiday sale for 50 percent off. Pixelmator can normally be purchased for $30 via the Mac App Store; however, the application can be purchased right now for a mere $15.
