Pixelmator, the much-more-affordable-than-Photoshop image editor, received a minor update today. I’m not sure what the new blending modes do quite yet, but I am glad to report that the Quartz Composer is back in action. I’m no expert pixel pusher, but I do like having the Quartz Composer around for generating random patterns to start images off with. This feature was accidentally removed in the first version of Pixelmator on the Mac App Store, but it has been returned to its rightful place in the Filters menu in v1.6.5 — meaning we can all get back to making our own custom-made bokehs from right inside Pixelmator.
If you’re interested in picking up Pixelmator, I believe it’s also still on sale for $29 (normally $59) on the MAS, and that fee includes a free upgrade to version 2.0 (which is scheduled for later this year).
