Thanks for the exhaustive comparison between the two products. I started with Photoshop many moons ago, so I still gravitate towards that product. But I canceled my Adobe subscription a few years ago. Two reasons: 1) it was subscription, and 2) I really don’t do much work with graphics anymore. Pixlemator can be my future graphics buddy.

Not sure if you’ve considered the usability of each application when those meat sticks–you and I know as fingers–are decimated by that 24-ounce furry black shredding machine. You probably didn’t notice it because of its ninja-like qualities, but if you look closely, it was on top of your laptop waiting to strike the entire time you were shooting pictures.
