The Pixelmator Team today released Pixelmator Pro 3.0, codenamed Muse, a major update to the award-winning Mac image editor designed to make powerful professional tools accessible to everyday users.
Pixelmator Pro 3.0 Muse introduces an all-new way to create designs with over 200 easy‑to‑use design templates, AI-powered template editing, 16 fully‑customizable mockups, document color palettes, and more.
“The easy-to-use design templates in Pixelmator Pro let absolutely anyone create stunning visuals in moments,” said Simonas Bastys, lead developer at the Pixelmator Team. “And with a range of gorgeous, fully-customizable mockups also included in today’s update, users can immediately see those designs come to life right in Pixelmator Pro.”
Design templates bring an all-new way to create with Pixelmator Pro. With over 200 ready‑made designs – and many more to come in the future – users can create anything from eye‑catching social media posts to beautiful event posters. Pixelmator Pro is designed from the ground up for ease of use and templates are no different, so they can be personalized using simple on-canvas controls. Every template also includes a range of built-in effects, illustrations, shapes, and more, that let you transform the look of a template with just a few clicks.
Pixelmator Pro uses state‑of‑the‑art machine learning to speed up template editing. When replacing placeholder content, it can automatically remove backgrounds, increase the resolution of low‑res images, and choose optimal placement and composition. Machine learning features are powered by Core ML for blazingly fast performance on the latest Apple silicon Macs, which feature the Neural Engine for accelerating ML tasks.
A unique feature of templates in Pixelmator Pro is brand templates, which are collections of templates created using the same design language. In each collection, users will find a range of templates in all the most common digital and print formats. With brand templates, it’s incredibly easy to build a consistent visual identity and each brand has been designed with real‑life brands in mind in categories like small business, art & design, events, food, and more.
The new Document Colors feature lets users quickly try out different color combinations for designs. Templates and mockups include designer-made color presets created exclusively for each visual but users can create their own color palettes or easily customize existing ones.
Version 3.0 also introduces fully‑customizable, ultra-premium design mockups. Users can easily place designs into mockups – whether they’re created using the templates in Pixelmator Pro or even other apps – adjust lighting effects and entirely recolor scenes in each mockup. Mockups include simple on-canvas controls, so it takes just a few clicks to completely change their look and feel.
