Informative layer subtitles now show useful info about layers, depending on their type: sizes for image layers, text formatting for text layers, path info for shape layers, and more. The design of the blending controls has been updated and they’ll now appear at the top of the Layers sidebar by default.
Layers sidebar viewing options can now be customized, so you can change the size of thumbnails, the visibility of layer subtitles, and the position of the blending controls. You can now quickly add an empty layer using the new Add Empty Layer button. Layer masks will now appear as separate layers in the Layers sidebar. Layer masks can now be unlinked from their parent layer — double-click the line connecting a layer mask to its layer to link or unlink it.
Color adjustments and effects layers let you apply color adjustments or effects to all the layers below them in a composition. These new layer types work just like other layers — they can be masked, hidden, rearranged, and more. You can now easily apply selective edits by using colors adjustments and effects layers with masks.
Use the Shift-Command-A keyboard shortcut to add a colors adjustments layer and Shift-Command-F to add an effects layer. Over new artist-designed shapes have been added to Pixelmator Pro.
Several new shape collections have been added and others have been rearranged, so there are now 10 collections: Basic, Activities, Food, Objects, Arches, Science, Animals, Plants, Organic, and Symbols. All shapes are pixel-perfect — this means their vector points perfectly align with pixel boundaries, ensuring any icons you create won’t have any unwanted blurring. Thanks to support for the M1 Ultra chip, Pixelmator Pro flies when performing machine learning-based tasks on the latest Mac Studio devices.
Tasks like automatic background removal, super-resolution, and photo enhancement are up to 1. The Scrubby Zoom mode makes it easier to zoom images when using a graphics tablet or mouse.
When using the Zoom tool, you can simply drag your image horizontally — like scrubbing video controls — to zoom in and out. When using other tools, first press the Space key, then the Option key to temporarily activate the Zoom tool. If you’d like to, you can change the scrubby zoom scroll direction from horizontal to vertical using the following Terminal command: defaults write com.
You can now create masks by Command-dragging layers onto other layers. You can also copy and paste masks between different Pixelmator Pro documents. You can now set the frame rate and duration when exporting Motion projects. The Up Arrow and Down Arrow keys can now be used to increment and decrement values in text fields. Press and hold the Shift key to use bigger increments. Use the new Option-Right Arrow and Option-Left Arrow keyboard shortcuts to adjust the character spacing of selected text.
Added support for a few more Adobe Photoshop adjustment layer types. Improved SVG writing and reading for better compatibility with other apps. Clipping masks will now be preserved when exporting SVG files. When replacing images using the Replace Image feature, file sizes will now be better optimized in certain situations.
Sometimes, part of the Pixelmator Pro workspace would be hidden when exiting fullscreen. When creating an effects or color adjustments layer from an empty layer, its mask would not be preserved. Color Adjustments and Effects menu items and their keyboard shortcuts would be inactive if the Crop tool was turned on.
Effects with adjustable opacity would sometimes show incorrect opacity values. The width of the fonts menu was incorrect with certain fonts. Pixelmator Pro would quit unexpectedly when importing Pixelmator Classic brushes. In certain situations, opening the Brushes browser would make Pixelmator Pro quit unexpectedly.
Opening photos stored in iCloud will now automatically download full-resolution versions of these photos. Any changes you make in the Photos app — for example, if you rearrange or rename your albums, add or remove photos — will now instantly appear in the photo browser. It is now possible to change the colors of shapes and Color Fill effect right in the Layers sidebar.
To open the color picker, double-click the layer thumbnail. You can now quickly convert color adjustments applied to a layer into a color adjustments layer. Option-scrolling to zoom using MacBook Air trackpads would sometimes work incorrectly. Changing the image size would not scale the grain size and sharpen radius of the Grain and Sharpen color adjustments layers.
Added a few shape-related stability and performance improvements and fixed an issue with shape thumbnails. Thanks to the new shapes browser, finding and inserting shapes into your designs is now quicker and easier than ever. Find the new shapes browser in the Shape tool’s options pane, the Add Layer menu at the top of the Layers sidebar, or add the new shapes browser button to your toolbar. Seamlessly browse your entire shapes library without switching between different shape categories.
The photo browser is now even more stable and powerful, bringing a smoother image browsing and search experience. Use the new Zoom slider to change the size of image thumbnails. Add images to favorites using a Favorite button in the toolbar. Preview image names by hovering the pointer over their thumbnails. The photo browser will now show progress when downloading photos from iCloud and when indexing image search results. You can now Control-click an image thumbnail to access a shortcuts menu with additional image opening options.
Option-click the Open button in the photo browser to open the original, unedited image for images edited in Photos or using third-party extensions. If an image fails to open, Pixelmator Pro will show more informative errors to help you troubleshoot issues quicker. You can now add and edit layer styles of multiple selected layers.
Original styles — fills, strokes, and shadows — applied to each individual layer are kept. You can also add, paste, and reset layer styles, color adjustments, and effects of multiple layers at a time. When exporting an image multiple times during the same editing session, Pixelmator Pro will now remember the last used document color profile setting.
Advanced shapes exported to Motion file format will now be more accurate. You can now reset all Crop and Quick Export presets to default. The Reset All option will appear when pressing and holding Option while in the preset shortcut menu.
Images with certain effects would sometimes look different when exported. Pixelmator Pro would occasionally stop responding when saving changes. Trying to load a Photos library that’s been deleted or removed with an external storage drive would cause Pixelmator Pro to quit unexpectedly. Use the new Shrink Text to Fit feature to automatically reduce the size of text when it’s too big for its text box or path. Pressing Shift-Enter while typing will now continue text from a new line instead of a new paragraph.
You can now quickly preview images in the photo browser by pressing the Space bar. Replace layers, shapes, and save custom shapes more quickly using new shortcut menu options and main menu items. When inserted, larger images will be automatically resized to fit the canvas. Thanks to performance optimizations, editing complex compositions is now 5 times faster. Memory management has also been improved to fix and prevent memory-related issues.
Automatically select the subject of any image — also with just a click. Easily make advanced selections of challenging image areas — even hair or fur. Use Smart Refine to turn a rough selection into a pixel-perfect one. Automatically remove any traces of the previous background from the edges of objects. Export files to Motion format to create motion graphics more easily than ever.
The design of the Export for Web tool has been refreshed to make it easier to use. Use the new Distribute Spacing feature to easily evenly space objects of different sizes. Use the new Remove Background feature to automatically remove the background from any image with just a click.
Find this new feature in the Pixelmator Pro toolbar, the Edit menu, by pressing the Shift-Backspace keyboard shortcut, by pressing and holding the Command key when dragging and dropping images into Pixelmator Pro documents, as a Quick Action in the Finder, and when Control-clicking image layers in the Layers sidebar.
The new Select Subject feature lets you automatically select the subject of any image — also with just a click. Note that this feature works especially well on macOS 12 and devices powered by the M1 chip. Thanks to the new Select and Mask tool, you can now make advanced selections of challenging image areas — like hair or fur — with ease. In the Select and Mask tool, you’ll find a redesigned Smart Refine feature that turns rough selections into accurate ones automatically.
When using the Select and Mask tool, you’ll also find a Refine Edge Brush that intelligently makes accurate selections of edge areas. To see your selection in more detail, you can try different selection overlays, like On Red, On White, or Black and White. Once you’ve refined your selection, choose to ouput it to a selection, a mask, a new layer, or a new layer with a mask. In addition to the Select and Mask tool for refining and creating selections, we’ve added a Refine Mask tool for refining and creating masks.
Use the Decontaminate Colors feature to remove any traces of the previous background from the edges of objects. The Pixelmator Pro actions in the Shortcuts app have been updated to be able to remove backgrounds and create subject masks from any image not just portrait images. The Export dialog now features an option to export images at custom sizes and scale factors. The last-used export location will now be remembered app-wide rather than for each document.
A progress indicator will now be displayed when using the Denoise feature. When exporting images to custom sizes using the Export dialog, the Bilinear algorithm will now be used for resizing rather than Lanczos.
When exporting to PNG using the Export dialog, small images with no color profile would be a little larger than they could be. The Custom Size option in the Export dialog would remember sizes incorrectly. Outlines for completely straight paths drawn with the Pen or Free Selection tool would sometimes be displayed incorrectly. When using the Select and Mask tool, outputting a selection of a RAW layer to a new layer would create graphical artifacts.
So, we added support for complex shapes using vector masks! We were planning to only add support for vectors in Motion but, at the beta testing stage, we had quite a few request for image layers too. However, as we added support for image layers, we decided we could do this too. Image masks on all layer types are supported! If you apply a Gaussian blur using the Effects tool in Pixelmator Pro, it will be preserved when you export it to Motion.
Pixelmator Pro features a huge number of Shortcuts actions, including a Convert Image action that lets you convert between different image formats. And you can now use that action to convert files to Motion format! Super happy we were able to add this too. Certain SVG filters and effects are now supported — gaussian blurs, drop shadows, and inner shadows, including SVG 2 drop shadows. Text support has been greatly improved, including support for path text, multiline text, text with multiple styles in spans, better whitespace handling, and more.
SVG masks are now supported, both clipping paths and image masks. Blending modes in SVG files were previously not supported — they are now. Added the ability to constrain the proportions of objects in SVG files, both when importing and exporting. Fixed an issue that would cause Pixelmator Pro to quit unexpectedly when closing documents. On Apple silicon-powered devices, the speed of advanced PNG compression has been greatly improved. You can now choose to keep or remove transparency when exporting WebP images optimized for the web.
The new Distribute Vertical Spacing and Distribute Horizontal Spacing features let you evenly space objects of different sizes. Pixelmator Pro actions in the Shortcuts app were not working with a larger number of images — they should now be able to handle hundreds of images and work faster than before. When using the Pixelmator Pro actions in Shortcuts to export images for the web, remove noise, match colors, or increase resolution, the Pixelmator Pro app would stop responding while these actions were being processed.
Square images would not be resized with the Pixelmator Pro Resize Images action. The View and Window menus have been rearranged to make the View menu a little more compact, moving window-related options to the Window menu. When exporting SVGs using the Export for Web tool, hidden layers will not be included in the final file. The Image Size keyboard shortcut was not working with Japanese keyboards.
With certain effects on shapes in PSD files, they would be opened incorrectly. Compatibility with certain third-party cloud storage providers has been improved. Support for masks in projects exported in Motion format has been improved, adding the ability to extend the lifetime of object masks. This fix was added by our colleague in Kharkiv, who’s been working with us for over a year now. Although he’s on indefinite paid leave, he saw this bug was an easy fix and pushed it to our git repo.
Almost immediately after, he had to run down to his local bomb shelter as the Russian army started shelling residential areas of his city. The Pixelate effect will now be automatically applied from the top left corner of the image. The default position for the Pattern Fill effect will now be from the top left corner of the pattern image rather than its center to make presets that use this effect function more reliably.
The decimal point can now be used as a decimal separator even in locales that use commas for decimals — if it’s the only separator, points will be considered the decimal separator. If you’d like to disable text field math, use the following Terminal flag: defaults write com.
Fixed a few cases where text field and tooltip values would be displayed as -0 or Document opening progress would sometimes be displayed incorrectly. You can now use the following Terminal flag to switch to package-type document saving: defaults write com.

Sat Dec 19, pm by pritcee Sat Dec 19, pm Long time PS user trying to switch over to pixelmator for my digital painting.
Tue Dec 22, am by ResLes Sat Dec 19, am I use the Mx master 3 mouse and the second scroll wheel is set up for zooming. Wed Apr 13, pm Hey pritcee, not sure if you’ve been painting much recently or even using Pixelmator Pro , but recently when thinking of little quality of life things to add, we remembered your scrubby zoom request — it’s now available in the app.
Thu Apr 21, pm I see we’ve incorporated the scrubby zoom feature. Unfortunately, I hate it! For users like me, the ability to create a bounding box to which the window is zoomed in was a godsend. It was yet another advantage unique to Pixelmator Pro! The former method allowed users to instantly and precisely specify the area and degree of magnification.
In comparison, the tool is now a sloppier matter of guesswork that wastes time, as the user zooms back and forth in an attempt to get the magnification and placement right. Was it necessary to take the former method away when incorporating the new method? Since at least one user prefers scrubby zoom, why not keep the old code and incorporate the new code by having the user hold down a modifier key?
Given that scrubby zoom may be most useful for tablet users, it would make sense for Mac users to have to make this accommodation.
