A New Image Editor; Pixelmator

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m not the technical one around here, but every now and then I’ll try my hand at something technical-ish. So, I’m here to report on a new program I’ve been playing around with, Pixelmator, an image editing app for Macs.

Have you ever had a photo you wanted to doctor up a bit? Have you ever, say, taken a picture of your 3 beautiful children in an embarrassingly messy living room and wished you could just go in and with a swish of a magic wand make that mess in your photo just disappear? Well, Pixelmator, can do just that (or claims to).

Since I don’t do Photoshop, but occasionally have the need to alter a photo, whether its to adjust the lighting, wipe out a blemish, or something more dramatic like swishing away embarrassing clutter, I thought I would try the free 30 day trial of Pixelmator.

For someone who is used to using Photoshop, Pixelmator probably seems pretty easy and straight forward. But, speaking as a total novice to photo editing, I’ve found it overwhelming. Even after watching several of the “beginner” tutorials on how to use the product, I’m still mystified as to how to transform my mediocre photo into a thing of beauty... or at least into something I would want to post on my blog.

The one tool on Pixelmator I do like is the “healing tool”. By clicking on the band-aid icon, I activate the healing power of Pixelmator and can wipe away blemishes or defects or unwanted images on the photo. I have used this tool several times and quite like it. But, as for the rest of the app, I’m not convinced yet. Ultimately, Pixelmator is not intuitive, at least for a beginner.

The free 30 day trial is still going on if any of you out there are interested in trying it for yourself!
