Brings improvements to the Denoise tool and RAW image support. ($49.99 new, free update, 589 MB, macOS 11+)

I have found Pixelmator very difficult to use, due to its TINY tool icons. Therefore when Pro was released, I never bothered to update the app. My copy of non-Pro is version 3.9.11 from November 2022, and the app seems to have been removed from the App Store. I see no upgrade path to Pro, not that I am interested in one.

I’m an everyday user of Pixelmator Pro and an occasional user of Photoshop. Here’s a comparison of the tool icons.

Leaving aside a literal toolbar comparison, it only took me three minutes to nix Pixelmator Pro as a Photoshop replacement. I don’t recall what the missing feature was, but it was something fairly basic that I can’t do without.
