Tutorial Description

Another sneaky peak this week, this time on an update to one of the most capable image editors and that's Pixelmator.

Since its launch exactly a year ago, Pixelmator has firmly established itself as one of the stellar graphics applications for OSX, or as they like to say ""Image editing for the rest of us"".

Sporting many features previously only seen in high end image editors (and now with additional features not seen in high end images editors), Pixelmator delivers a wealth of functionality and some leading edge technology.

With the advent of the soon to be released Version 1.3, the Pixelmator developers have been focussing on delivering better performance and re-working and adding to Pixelmators rich toolset.

For this weeks show, I've split the contents into two halves:

The first half is all about the new tools and significant enhancements to some of the old tools.

This section covers:

  • Smart Palette Hide
  • Magic Eraser
  • Magic Wand
  • Enhanced Paint Bucket
  • Hue and Saturation
  • Replace Color

The second half of the show looks at some of the other features and techniques used within Pixelmator to make it such a powerful package.

These include:

  • Layers
  • Layer Masks
  • Clipping Mask
  • Curves Tools
  • Gradient Tool
  • Transform Tools
  • Crop Tool

And don't forget, there are a wealth of filters and effects also available in Pixelmator that I ran out of time to cover.

Check out the previous screencast to see some of these in action.
