Pixelmator Team announce pro-level photo editor specifically for iPads


After yesterday's iPad Pro announcement we now know were all the R&D of Apple is going and that the iPad Pro is closer than ever to replacing Macs and PCs in terms of sheer power as well as versatility and not to mention class-leading displays.

The hardware is certainly future facing and now the apps are too. We know there will be Photoshop for iPad coming in 2019 which will definitely change the game for photographers and editors. We are also getting a new app from Pixelmator which is built from the ground up for iPads.

The AI-powered Pixelmator Photo. Pixelmator Photo gives users all the tools they need to edit photos on iPad - a collection of nondestructive, desktop-class color adjustments, a set of stunning, machine learning-enhanced film emulation presets, a magical Repair tool to remove unwanted objects from photos, support for editing RAW images, and more.

"From the very first day that we released Pixelmator Pro on Mac, we wanted to bring the same photo editing experience to iPad," said Saulius Dailide, one of the founders of the Pixelmator Team. "And with Pixelmator Photo, we're bringing a fantastic collection of photo editing tools to iPad - our powerful color adjustments, the magical Repair tool, groundbreaking, AI-powered image enhancement, and more."

Pixelmator Photo brings a desktop photo editing experience to iPad. It features full support for RAW images from over 500 cameras, a collection of powerful, nondestructive color adjustments - foundational adjustments like Brightness, Exposure, and Saturation, time-tested photo editing classics, such as Levels, and Curves, a Grain adjustment for adding film grain, and many others. And the Repair and Crop tools let users perfect all the details - from removing small blemishes and entire objects to perfecting the composition.

Pixelmator Photo also takes full advantage of Core ML, using machine learning to power its ML Fix, ML Presets, and ML Crop features. ML Crop uses a machine learning algorithm to suggest a way of improving the composition of a photo. Users can choose an aspect ratio and tap the ML Crop button to be offered a suggestion, optionally resizing and repositioning the cropping box to refine the suggestion.
