Pixelmator offers two editing extensions for Photos for macOS—Pixelmator Retouch and Pixelmator Distort. In this video, Derrick Story provides an overview of both editing extensions. Pixelmator is a popular image editing app for the Mac platform, that now includes two editing extensions as part of its download.
- [Instructor] When you buy Pixelmator in the Mac App Store…you get two editing extensions with it.…Now Pixelmator itself is really deep image editor…it does all sorts of stuff.…And the extensions are a bit more…specialized and we see that,…we see that with Affinity also which we're going to talk about…in some upcoming movies.…So you don't get the whole shebang…in terms of what Pixelmator can do in the editing extensions…but what you do get are some pretty useful things…especially tools that shore up the gaps…in Photos for macOS.…
So we'll go to extensions here and I'm just going to…give you a peak at them right now…and then we'll dive into them much deeper…in the next couple movies.…My favorite of the two is Pixelmator Retouch.…And the reason why I like it is again it has…things that I don't enjoy in Photos for macOS natively.…It has a great repair tool.…It has a cloning tool and then the light…and color are not just for changing the overall…image globally, but for painting, which is very nice.…
So it could be used as dodging and burning for light,…
