I’m not ready to do a full writeup on this, but at first glance I like what I see in Pixelmator. As a web designer who’s been using Photoshop for years, I like the feel of Pixelmator. It feels very much like a native Mac app, and is easy to ramp up on. Can it soar to the heights of Photoshop’s finesse and complexity? Not exactly. But it can do about 80 to 90% of what you can do in PS, and at the price you have to pay now for a monthly Adobe subscription; I say: Bring on the alternatives.
