Software Overview

Pixelmator is a layer-based image editor for iOS devices. The app can be used to touch up, enhance, sketch, and paint images. It is the mobile version of the Pixelmator desktop application for OS X.

The app supports several graphic formats, most notably JPEG, PNG, TIFF, GIF, and PSD. Pixelmator features layer-based editing and an abundance of photo editing, painting, and graphic design tools. You can remove skin blemishes and unwanted objects in photos, choose from over 100 brushes and erasers when painting, blend layers, text, and shapes when designing graphics, and much more.

After finishing your artwork, you can save your images directly to your Photos app or store it on iCloud for later access. You can also share your image through social channels such as Facebook, Flickr, and Twitter.

The app is designed for amateur and professional artists such as photographers, graphic designers, and painters. The app is easy-to-use while still providing an impressive amount of image editing tools for a mobile app. While creating and editing images on an iPhone or iPad may not be a user's first choice, especially if you are a professional, but Pixelmator is an excellent app that allows you to create impressive images on-the-go.
