Pixelmator 2.1 now $14.99 in Mac App Store, adds functionality and Retina support

There’s no lack of photo editing software on the Mac. On top of free favorites like GIMP (through the X11 Window System) and Seashore, there are also a plethora of great paid editors too. One of those is a relatively new one known as Pixelmator – and today, it was updated and discounted.

For $14.99 – a discount of $45 from its regular asking price of $59.99 – you’ll get all of the great features that have already made Pixelmator an instant favorite among plenty of users, but also the new features from the 2.1 update, including: iCloud syncing, Retina display and Mountain Lion support, and a selection of new sharing options so you can put your edits and creations on your favorite social media networks.

I’ve been using Seashore for a long time to do all of my edits. It’s a great app for free, but it isn’t the most robust option out there. Pixelmator offers a variety of extra tools to help get edits done quickly and beautifully. For $14.99, I’m finding myself hard-pressed not to buy a copy – especially after writing about its superiority to Seashore. In fact, some people have even compared the app to Adobe’s Photoshop; I think I might just buy a copy when I’m done writing this article.
