The Pixelmator Team has released Pixelmator 3.4.1 with smoother gradients in 16-bit images, sharper effect previews in the Effects Browser, and improved support for 16-bit Photoshop images. The image editing app also keeps the colors the same within the crop marquee (they were previously slightly lightened compared to the rest of the image), ensures the correct name and shortcut are shown in the tooltip when hovering over an effect name in the Effects Browser, fixes a bug that filled the corners of several effect thumbnails with random colors in OS X 10.11 El Capitan, and resolves a crash that occurred when using the Gradient Tool in 10.9 Mavericks. ($29.99 new from the Mac App Store, free update, 46.7 MB, release notes, 10.9.5+)
