Long-fabled image editor Pixelmator
(arguably one of the hottest, and most discussed
Mac applications of the year) has finally left beta testing, and version 1 is available to download and buy. Compatibility with layered Photoshop PSD files (and over 100 other file formats
too), Core Image-driven editing, Automator actions, iSight and iLife integration and a heck of a lot more await, and it's certainly a compelling option given that a licence costs just $59.
If you're wanting to get a quick look at the features in Pixelmator (and our very own screencast
didn't whet your appetite enough), then in conjunction with the launch of the app, well-known screencast producer Don McAllister of ScreenCasts Online has produced a brief screencast
that takes a look at the basics of the application.
Pixelmator requires OS X 10.4 Tiger, with a Core Image-compatible graphics card recommended.
