Pixelmator Pro 1.2 was released earlier today, according to a company blog post. The update adds macOS Mojave support, a new "light appearance" to work with Mojave's light and dark modes, ML Enhance and batch processing using five actions.


New features in Pixelmator Pro 1.2 include:

  • Pixelmator Pro is now fully compatible with macOS Mojave.
  • A new light appearance lets you change appearance any time in Pixelmator Pro preferences.
  • Use ML Enhance to automatically improve the look of any photo using a machine learning algorithm trained on millions of professional photos.
  • Batch process images using five powerful Pixelmator Pro actions in the Automator app: Apply Color Adjustments to Images, Apply Effects to Images, Auto Enhance Images, Auto White Balance Images and Change Type of Images.
  • Create richer, more vibrant graphics and designs with colorful SVG fonts. The Gilbert Color font is included with this update.
  • Thanks to support for the Continuity Camera, you can now take pictures using your iPhone and have them instantly appear in the Pixelmator Pro document you're editing.


Improvements in Pixelmator Pro 1.2 include:

  • The Pixelmator Pro interface has been refined to more closely match the look of macOS in both Light and Dark Mode.
  • Accent color support means the buttons and sliders in Pixelmator Pro will now match your preferences.
  • You can now change the color of the Pixelmator Pro window background in Pixelmator Pro preferences.
  • The Pixel Paint tool now has an Eraser Mode.


Fixes in Pixelmator Pro 1.2 include:

  • After hiding and showing the Pixelmator Pro Tool Options pane, certain buttons would not be updated when using the Arrange tool. Fixed.
  • When scrolling inside the brush size text field to resize the retouching and distort tools, the ratio between the brush size and scroll speed was incorrect. Fixed.
  • When opening images with no PPI information, the PPI will now be set at 72 by default, rather than 150.
  • Closing a document while using the Quick Selection tool would occasionally cause Pixelmator Pro to quit unexpectedly. Fixed.
  • The Color Selection tool was not working correctly in all images. Fixed.


Pixelmator Pro 1.2 is available now for $29.99 from the Mac App Store as a 168.5-MB download.
