Mac users are getting the World’s first GPU-Powered image editor that brings all a Mac head needs to create, edit, and enhance still images. Pixelmator (Like Tuh-mator, without the Tuh) was built from the ground up using open source and Mac OS X technologies.
"Finally, an innovative, fast, and easy-to-use image editor that brings the power of today's expensive image production tools to every Mac user at a very affordable price," said Saulius Dailide, Pixelmator Team. "We think all Mac people-home users as well as professionals-will find Pixelmator very useful and fun".
The program features powerful selection, painting, retouching, navigation, and color correction tools and uses layer-based image editing. The image processing is completely GPU powered, which is pretty cool.
Pixelmator is based on Core Image and OpenGL tech using the Mac graphics card for the processing. Macs with a high-performance graphics card will provide real-time responsiveness with image editing, color correction tools, filters and more. The application will work on the latest PowerPC and all Intel-based Macs. Pixelmator will be available in late July for $59. Via Pixelmator
