The Pixelmator Team has issued version 1.5.5 of its Pixelmator Pro image editing app, enhancing the recently added ML Super Resolution feature (see “Pixelmator Pro 1.5.4,” 6 January 2020) with improvements to upscaling highly compressed images, sharpening edges, upscaling faces and portrait photos, and preserving small color details. The release also brings better strong noise removal to the ML Denoise feature, adds Automator actions for Increase Resolution of Images and Denoise Images, preserves the visible part of the canvas after changing the size of an image, fixes a bug with ML Super Resolution that caused some pixels to become slightly transparent after upscaling, and extends the maximum range of the Sharpen color adjustment to 100 pixels. ($39.99 new from Pixelmator and the Mac App Store, free update, 189 MB, release notes, macOS 10.13+)
