Pixelmator team unveils Pixelmator 3.0 FX


The Pixelmator Team has announced Pixelmator 3.0 FX for Mac OS X. Available as a free upgrade from the Mac App Store, version 3.0 features Layer Styles, Liquify Tools, and support for new features in OS X Maverick.

The upgrade also boasts a new, state-of-the-art image editing engine, says Saulius Dailide, of the Pixelmator Team. Pixelmator 3.0 FX introduces Layer Style, which speeds up the creation of polished compositions. You can apply shadows and inner shadows, beautiful gradients, create outlines, or reflections. Or apply a combination of effects with any of the Layer Styles presets. All of this is done non-destructively.

The new Liquify Tools bring even more ways to shape up and play with your images. You can slightly twist an element, add an artistic detail, or even completely distort the entire image. The new Warp, Bump, Pinch, and Twirl Liquify Tools are fun to play with, whether you want to subtly improve your photos or artistically distort them, according to Dailide.

He adds that Pixelmator's development team took an extra step to build a modern and innovative image editing engine that takes advantage of the full power of OS X, by combining technologies like Core Image, OpenCL, OpenGL, 64-bit architecture, and Grand Central Dispatch.

With new features in OS X Mavericks, like App Nap and Compressed Memory, Pixelmator is even more responsive and power efficient, says Dailide. Tags in OS X Mavericks helps you organize and find Pixelmator documents quickly.

Pixelmator 3.0 is available exclusively from the Mac App Store for US$29.99 for new users. It’s a free upgrade for all existing customers who purchased the app from the Mac App Store. More information on version 3.0 and a free 30-day trial can be found at Pixelmator online (www.pixelmator.com).
