“We are super excited to introduce a powerful, fast, yet very easy-to-use image editor that has everything you need to create, edit, and enhance images on iPad. It looks amazing, and it’s a real iOS 8 app,” said Saulius Dailide of the Pixelmator Team. “We think everyone, creators at home and professional image editors, will find Pixelmator for iPad incredibly useful, capable and fun.”

Pixelmator for iPad brings full-featured painting tools, outstanding brushes and an impressive painting engine. You can choose from a range of brushes, from realistic to stylized,of all sizes and shapes to subtly enhance photos, sketch, draw, paint, spray, color, and so much more, even create breathtaking masterpieces from scratch. And every stroke you paint on canvas blends in and responds naturally, thanks to a state-of-the-art painting engine built right in.

Featuring innovative color adjustment tools, Pixelmator makes it easy to do precise or artistic color corrections. Use one of the single-tap color sets to give your work a quick enhancement or a more creative look. Or play around with advanced controls like levels, brightness and contrast, color balance, curves, white balance and so much more. Live histograms provide real-time color values so you know exactly what you are doing. And unique color adjustment technology combines all adjustments non-destructively, so you can apply as many color adjustments as you want without losing image quality.

Pixelmator comes with a set of top-quality retouching tools so you can easily make every picture absolutely stunning. With the innovative repair tool, quickly and easily get rid of unwanted image elements simply by painting on them or, with just a simple tap, fix red eyes, brush away blemishes, smudge to smooth out hard lines, paint to boost the colors, bring in some light and so much more. Advanced technologies used in retouching tools make them incredibly fast and accurate, so that you can seamlessly bring an image to perfection.

Loaded with dozens of breathtaking effects, Pixelmator for iPad gives even more ways to enhance pictures.
