Mobile Photography/Art Tutorial – Pixelmator for iPhone – TheAppWhisperer


We are delighted to publish Jerry Jobe’s latest mobile photography/art tutorial for our pleasure. This week Jobe takes a look Pixelmator, now a universal app. Read his thoughts as he puts this new iPhone version through it’s paces (foreword by Joanne Carter).

Pixelmator retails for $4.99/£3.99 and you can download it here.

“Last November I started a five-part series on an app new to mobile devices (see here), Pixelmator. It’s a very powerful program, but that power was limited to iPad users. That is, up until last week, when Pixelmator for iPhone was released. It makes Pixelmator a universal app, and therefore does not incur any addition cost for those who have used it on the iPad.

I’ve attempted to put it through its paces, even though I am one of those who find the smaller screen of an iPhone challenging. I have not yet found anything that can’t be done on the iPhone that could on the iPad. There are still limits on the number of levels that can be used, but it doesn’t seem to be any lower on the iPhone.

For more in-depth coverage of Pixelmator, refer to my five-part series. This article will just show how the app looks on the smaller screen of the iPhone”.
