VILNIUS, Lithuania, Dec. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Pixelmator Team today announced a major update to the Pixelmator app for iPhone and iPad, the full-featured, layer-based image editing app. Pixelmator for iOS 2.2 now works perfectly on the iPad Pro, fully supports the new Apple Pencil and allows you to open and edit 16K images. The update also adds 3D Touch support on iPhone 6s, a collection of artist-designed Basic brushes, a new Auto-straighten feature and more. Pixelmator for iOS 2.2 is available today as a free update from the App Store.
"User feedback about the desktop-class features of Pixelmator for iOS has been amazing, and today we're excited to make all those features available on the iPad Pro," said Saulius Dailide, one of the founders of Pixelmator Team.
Pixelmator for iOS, now optimized for iPad Pro, takes full advantage of its powerful built-in features and technologies and allows users to create and edit images on the large 12.9-inch display with incredibly fast processing. With Apple Pencil support and over 50 specially tailored brushes, users have more control over the look of a stroke and can paint more intuitively than ever. The new palm-rejection feature and almost real-time response makes painting with Pixelmator on the iPad Pro feel just like on paper. Photographers and graphic designers can also take advantage of Apple Pencil support, which now gives them even more creative space and the ability to work with much greater precision. 16K image support allows all imaging professionals to create and edit stunning-quality images up to 100 megapixels, which makes Pixelmator for iOS perfect for working with extremely large photos and truly advanced compositions, right inside Pixelmator on the iPad Pro.
Pixelmator on iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus adds full 3D Touch support. In addition to useful shortcuts when pressing firmly on the Pixelmator icon from the home screen and on an image in the Pixelmator gallery, Pixelmator for iOS 2.2 also brings 3D Touch-sensitive painting. Now you can change the look of a stroke simply by varying the pressure you apply on the screen with your finger, without having to change the brush settings.
In addition to iPad Pro, Apple Pencil and 3D touch support, Pixelmator for iOS 2.2 features other great improvements, such as a collection of artist-designed Basic brushes, including the new Pixel brush; enhanced Crop performance, which makes it even easier to crop and straighten images; a new Auto-straighten feature, that lets you straighten images with a single tap; the ability to increase font size up to 1000 pixels; and more.
Founded in 2007 by two brothers, Saulius Dailide and Aidas Dailide, the Pixelmator Team develops Pixelmator for Mac—a full-featured image editing app for Mac, and Pixelmator for iOS—the world's most advanced image editing app for iPad and iPhone. Both apps have been honored with numerous awards, such as the Mac App Store App of the Year 2011, the App Store iPad App of the Year 2014, and many more. Pixelmator for iPad was featured in the Apple Special Event in October 2014.
