The Pixelmator 3.2 update was announced a month ago, and now it's time to try the app in action. Called Sandstone, this great Photoshop alternative is already available on the Mac App Store. There are so many innovations that we cannot tell about all of them, but we will be persistent.
The central theme of the Pixelmator 3.2 update is a tool called the Repair Tool, which is an excellent tool for fighting graphic junk. There are several modes for removing spots, strokes, highlights and other unwanted elements, including very advanced options. A kind of magic at the flick of the mouse cursor - the correction algorithms are very competently composed, a lot of attention is paid to accurate work with the background of the image.
The long-awaited option is blocking image layers, something that has long been implemented in other graphic editors and makes life much easier for artists. And now in Pixelmator 3.2, you can close the prepared layer with a careless click in order to start working on another, without being distracted in vain. Less time spent on organizational issues - more will remain for creativity, and the developers have thoroughly optimized the entire other interface, so these are not empty words. And here is such a nice bonus, the application was taught to consume system resources more sparingly, RAM is required 4 times less than before the update.
In version 3.1 there was only support for 8-bit channels, in 3.2 added the ability to work with 16-bit channels and convert files from one format to another. An extremely important option - Mac Pro users will undoubtedly appreciate it quickly, because it is not so easy to operate with 16 million shades without being able to specify the color code as accurately as possible. The more bits, the less the likelihood of awkward colored stripes and spots due to its majesty of chance.
The list of useful new options in Pixelmator 3.2, briefly:
- A set of tools Repair Tool, built on revolutionary technologies and allows you to correct the results of "creativity" with respectable accuracy;
- Support for 16-bit color shades encoding format to create bright and rich images;
- Shape converter - a new option for creating objects of arbitrary shapes;
- Locking layers, in which the next changes do not spread beyond the layer with which you are working.
The price of the application in the Mac App Store is 979 rubles, if you own old versions and want to update - everything is free.
