LONDON, March 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
The Pixelmator Team today released Pixelmator 1.1, codenamed Aquarelle, a major update to the world's most advanced full-featured, layer-based image editor for the iPad. Pixelmator 1.1 comes with a unique watercolor painting technology, a collection of artist-designed watercolor brushes, a new Color Picker, twice as fast painting performance, and more.
"It took a close collaboration between artists and our engineering team to develop a unique watercolor painting technology that makes it easy to create fascinating, real-life looking watercolor paintings," said Saulius Dailide, one of the founders of the Pixelmator Team. "We think that the new Pixelmator watercolor technology will inspire painters as well as creative photographers to find new ways of expression."
Unique for the iPad, new watercolor painting technology in Pixelmator 1.1 lets you create watercolors right on your iPad. Artist-designed watercolor brushes apply colors with watery strokes, just like applying paint on paper with a wet brush. When brush strokes overlap, their colors blend, creating an entirely new color with a soft gradient between them. With Pixelmator 1.1, you can create beautiful watercolor paintings or use watercolors to add an artistic touch to your photos.
Pixelmator 1.1 Aquarelle is packed with other great features such as two-times-faster painting performance, an innovative new Color Picker, the ability to insert a photo as a new layer from iCloud Drive, lock image transparency, open RAW image preview, a refreshed Eyedropper tool, live brush preview, and better stylus support. Enhanced Photoshop file support makes Pixelmator 1.1 the most Photoshop-friendly app on iPad. Pixelmator 1.1 also comes with major stability and performance improvements.
Pricing & Availability
Pixelmator for iPad is available from the App Store for $9.99.
