Pixelmator 1.3.1 released
Pixelmator has launched Pixelmator 1.3.1, updating its image editor with a color-management sheet and Refine Selection tool. The Color-Management sheet manages color profiles in images and retains the functionality the Assign to Profile and Match to Profile tools. The Refine Selection tool allows users to make precise selections, controlling smooth, feather and size parameters and displaying real-time results. The new version also improves the Type tool, adds user interface and compatibility improvements, and bug fixes.
The image editor features a full pallet of drawing, painting and retouching tools and supports layering effects, all while being CPU-aware. It also supports direct capture from iSight cameras, has a photo browser built in and offers Automator compatibility. Pixelmator 1.3.1 requires Mac OS X 10.5.5 or higher and recommends a core-image supported graphics card. Some features require Apple's iLife suite. It is now available for download for $60.
