Pix­el­ma­tor

Mac Format - - APPLEWORLD - £2.99 De­vel­oper Pix­el­ma­tor Team Works with iPad

This is just em­bar­rass­ing. £2.99 is too lit­tle to pay for an app as pow­er­ful as Pix­el­ma­tor, surely. It feels like rob­bery to down­load it – but make no mis­take, you ab­so­lutely should get it. The popular (and ex­cel­lent) Mac im­age-edit­ing app has come across to iPad, and of­fers ev­ery­thing from sim­ple and fun ef­fects such as lens flare to ad­vanced re­pair tools for re­mov­ing un­wanted ob­jects from even com­plex scenes – in many ways, this is more like Pho­to­shop for iPad than, er, Pho­to­shop Touch is. The tools are ap­plied in lay­ers, mean­ing you can make non-de­struc­tive, multi-faceted ed­its, and it’s all been de­signed to run in­cred­i­bly quickly and smoothly on iOS de­vices, with lit­tle wait­ing for things to process or ren­der.

It’s even got some great paint­ing tools, for orig­i­nal art, rather than pho­to­graphic tweaks. iCloud Drive support means that you can work on your images seam­lessly on ei­ther the Mac or iOS ver­sions of Pix­el­ma­tor, and it can out­put its doc­u­ments to PSD files, if you’d like to do some work in Pho­to­shop in­stead.

We’re re­ally ex­cited about Pix­el­ma­tor not just be­cause it of­fers such ad­vanced tools for im­age-edit­ing on the go, but be­cause it rep­re­sents another step for­ward for the iPad as a real pro­fes­sional-level way to work.
