Mac: The new Pixelmator update, 3.5 Canyon, brings Quick Selection and Magnetic Selection tools, as well as a Retouch Extension for the Mac’s Photos app.
The new Quick Selection Tool is designed to make selecting complex objects in your image a lot easier. Using a new algorithm called Smart Edge Detection, the Quick Selection Tool lets you highlight and select an object with just a few brush strokes. The Magnetic Selection Tool also makes tracing objects super easy by finding the object edges for you and automatically snapping a selection around them. In addition to the advanced new selection tools, the major 3.5 Canyon update also features the Pixelmator Retouch Extension for the Photos app, which includes the popular Pixelmator Repair Tool. The extension lets you retouch your favourite photos with the tools you like, but still keep them organised in Photos.
The Pixelmator 3.5 Canyon update is free for all current Pixelmator users, but if you don’t have it yet, you can grab it for $46.99 in the Mac App Store. You can read more about the update and see the new tools in action at the link below.
