Pixelmator expands iPad Pro support with 30 new brushes

December 17, 2015

One of our favorite image editors, Pixelmator, is hot to add in new iOS technologies. It recently began supporting the Apple Pencil on the iPad Pro and 3D Touch on the iPhone 6s, and another update has expanded on this even more. Now, the app supports Apple Pencil’s Tilt feature for 30 more brushes.

At version 2.2.1, Pixelmator for iOS also provides faster Distort tools, while including several fixes to improve the experience of using the app. The developers state that applying multiple effects to large images in Pixelmator’s Photos Extension on iOS should work flawlessly, and the app should prove to be more stable when opening images.


Several other annoying issues have also been fixed in the latest update to Pixelmator. An issue that forced you to close and reopen the text format popover to make changes to text size or rotation after editing one of these options has been resolved. Additionally, a problem with Peek and Pop causing the app to unexpectedly quit on 3D Touch devices has been fixed.

Pixelmator supports all of the features of Apple Pencil, including palm rejection. Whether you want to use pressure sensitivity, allowing you to press firmly for heavy lines and gently for fine brush strokes, or vary the pace of your stroke to adjust the weight of your line, Pixelmator supports it. There are also tailored brushes and low latency painting.

Pixelmator is designed for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, and requires iOS 9 or later. It is available for $4.99 on the App Store, with no ads or in-app purchases.
