Pixelmator Photo 1.2 out now

The fantastic updates just keep on coming and now it’s time for Pixelmator Photo 1.2! The latest major update — months in the making — brings Magic Keyboard, trackpad, and mouse support, Split View support, the machine-learning powered ML Match Colors, and more. Let’s take a closer look.

Trackpad Support

Enjoy full support for the new, click-anywhere trackpad.

Split View

Use Pixelmator Photo and any other app side by side.

ML Match Colors

Match the look and feel of one photo to another.

Adjustment Intensity

Magic Keyboard, trackpad, and mouse support

The new cursor in iPadOS brings a whole new way to work in Pixelmator Photo and we’re incredibly excited to be adding support for editing with a Magic Keyboard, trackpad, or mouse to Pixelmator Photo. If you’re all about using a cursor with iPad, we hope you’ll love the added precision.

Edit in Pixelmator Photo and any other app side by side

Thanks to Split View support, you can now edit in Pixelmator Photo and any other app side by side! Of course, Pixelmator Photo works with Slide Over, too.

Match the look and feel of one photo to another

The machine learning-powered ML Match Colors, first debuted in Pixelmator Pro, is now available in Pixelmator Photo. It lets you match the look and feel of completely different photos using our cutting-edge machine learning algorithm trained on 20 million professional photos. And it works with Split View, so you can simply drag and drop photos from other apps to use this new feature!

Adjustment intensity, quicker ways to copy adjustments, and more

This update turned out to be bigger than even we expected and we’ve got quite a few other great new features and improvements.


You can now control the intensity of adjustments using a handy new slider you’ll find at the bottom of the color adjustments pane. We’ve also added a new Recents collection of presets, which contains 5 automatically-generated adjustment presets with the settings from your most recently edited photos. And we’ve made it much easier to copy and paste adjustments between photos.

Head down to the App Store to make sure you’re all up to date and we’ll have some more great update news for you not too long from now. Stay tuned!
