For most everyday users, there’s no need for an image editor with the bells & whistles. Many people would rather prefer something that simply works. Pixelmator is the perfect solution.

Its gorgeous UI and incredible ease-of-use makes it just amazing to work with. It’s loads quickly, does exactly what you need and goes out of your way. Oh, did I mention that it’s perfect?

We’ve managed to “heist” 10 copies of Pixelmator worth $600 to give away for free to 10 lucky MakeUseOf readers.

I guess this is something that amazes me so much that I have to mention twice — Pixelmator loads so quickly, it’s unbelievable. When I need to make simple yet sophisticated adjustments to my images quickly while multitasking, forget about Photoshop, I launch Pixelmator.

It greets me with a simple Welcome window.


Then here’s the gorgeous (yet very usable) UI I spoke of earlier. All of the tools you need are laid out on the screen. Like Photoshop, it supports layers, advanced image correction, retouching tools, cool filters and effects. And before you ask — yes, Pixelmator is compatible with PSD files. In fact, take a look at the full list of features it has to offer.

If you’re harbouring some doubt as to whether Pixelmator is as powerful as Photoshop, don’t. Pixelmator has a very creatively driven community which share and help each other bring out the best from Pixelmator. Here are some web-based tutorials to demonstrate that Pixelmator won’t cripple your creative mojo.

And what about exporting images? Pixelmator saves to a native “pixelmator” image format but it will also allow you to export your images to any image format you desire. I mean any. In the screenshot below, notice that the common image formats have their own quick-to-reach tabs but within the Other tab lies a whole bunch of other image formats I’ve never even heard of.

Pixelmator is the perfect, cheaper alternative to Photoshop on a Mac. If you don’t believe me, download the 30-day trial and check it out for yourself.
