The image-editing software Pixelmator Pro 2.0 (code name: “Junipero”) is designed as a universal app that supports the new Apple M1 processor. Intel CPU systems are supported as well.
It is integrated with Metal, Apple’s hardware-accelerated 3D graphics and compute framework, standard library, and GPU shading language, thus providing increased speed in various image-editing processing steps, by a factor of 15x. The user interface has been completely overhauled, and now matches the macOS 11 (Big Sur) design. A new Effects Browser, interface customization, and workspaces for photography, design, painting and illustration are included. In addition, Pixelmator PRO also has a new presets browser, including seven new color adjustment preset collections and eight new effect preset collections. For users of former Pixelmator versions, the update to the PRO 2 version is cost-free.
