Pixelmator, the makers of perhaps the best Photoshop alternative for macOS, teased a brand new app in a blog post today that they’ve been secretly working on for five whole years.

The mystery app is coming soon, said the Pixelmator team.

While they stopped short of revealing what the forthcoming software is about, it’s a safe bet that they’ve been working on a new kind of image-editing app for Mac. All we know that it’s the coolest thing that “we or anyone else has done in years” and their biggest project ever.

The Pixelmator team said:

This is the biggest thing that we’ve ever done. The most innovative, beautiful and powerful thing that we’ve ever done. And it’s also the most Mac thing that we’ve ever done.

The teaser image they shared shows a little bit of the app’s interface, suggesting it could be an app for vector graphics akin to Adobe Illustrator.

    It better be good and innovative, otherwise, they’ve wasted the past 5 years letting Affinity Photo eat their lunch and take over the Photoshop replacement standard.

    It’s def coming at WWDC

  • I’m excited to hear this! Pixelmator has become my go to app for artwork and editing even though I also own Photoshop and Affinity Photo. While there’s some things I can’t do in it an have to use the others occasionally Pixelmator has won me over as the go-to tool of choice. Looking forward to whatever they unveil. And I given the icon design at the bottom of the screen I have some suspicions as to what it might be 😉

      How many shares in Apple in your portfolio? 🙂

      • LOL, not sure how you got there from my commenting that I love piexelmator but to answer your question. Zero.
