Pixelmator 3.6

The Pixelmator Team has released Pixelmator 3.6 (aka Cordillera) with full support for macOS 10.12 Sierra and the new MacBook Pro laptops with the context-sensitive Touch Bar (see “New MacBook Pros Add Context-sensitive Touch Bar,” 27 October 2016). If you have a new MacBook Pro, you’ll be able to change tools quickly using the Touch Bar, view options for the currently selected tool, and customize which tools appear (check out this Vimeo video to see the Touch Bar in action with Pixelmator).

The update also enables you to manage windows using tabs, adds the Smart Refine feature to improve selections with a single click, adds support for Deep Images (making 16-bit images more vibrant on wide color displays), makes the Repair tool faster and more accurate, adds a live preview to the Quick Selection tool, and fixes an issue with images disappearing when editing larger images on some 2013 and 2014 Macs. ($29.99 new from the Mac App Store, free update, 57.6 MB, release notes, 10.9.5+)
