Pixelmator for iPhone was released today as a universal app, a free update for owners of the iPad version (which is no longer available on the App Store, apparently, in favor of the universal app). The $4.99 image editor offers a wealth of features, including support for Photoshop PSD files with layers.


Highlights of the photo editing features include:

  • Dozens of beautifully designed templates
  • Frame your images or create collages, cards, and posters
  • Single-tap color correction presets
  • Levels and Curves
  • Remove color casts, adjust white balance
  • Hue and Saturation effects
  • Wipe away image imperfections, skin blemishes and unwanted objects
  • Pinch, bump, twirl or warp areas of an image with Metal-powered Distort Tools
  • Blur, sharpen, lighten or darken specific areas of an image
  • Choose from dozens of effects

Compatibilty highlights include:

  • Open, edit and save Photoshop images with layers
  • Open and save images using PSD, JPEG, PNG, PDF and other popular formats
  • Save your images directly to your Photos app
  • Store and access images on iCloud Drive
  • Instantly publish your images to Flickr, Twitter and Facebook


This version of Pixelmator requires iOS 8.3 or later.

It's compatible with the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus.

Pixelmator for iPhone is available on the App Store for $4.99 and it is a free download for those of you who already have an iPad version.

Go ahead and download the world's most powerful mobile image editing app -- we are eager to see what you guys create using the new Pixelmator for iPhone.

P.S. As for the near future, an in-depth Pixelmator for iPhone ibook and a bunch of awesome video tutorials are in the works. Stay tuned.
