Pixelmator, the powerful Photoshop replacement for the Mac and iPad, has gone half price ahead of Black Friday tomorrow. Sébastien yesterday posted a running list of iOS apps and games on sale this week, but Pixelmator definitely deserve’s a post of its own due to its tremendous popularity and quality.
This capable image editor features full support for the latest Yosemite and iOS 8 Continuity technologies such as Handoff and iCloud Drive. The Mac edition of Pixelmator has been marked down to $14.99.
The app normally costs $29.99 so you can save fifteen bucks if you purchase it discounted. And Pixelmator for iPad, which debuted in the App Store a month ago, is still just $4.99 as the team extended launch promotion for another week.
Released earlier this month, the Pixelmator 3.3 ‘Limestone’ update brought out a redesigned user interface and enabled the Repair Tool extension on Yosemite. With Pixelmator’s extension (you must first enable it in System Preferences > Extensions), you can easily fix images in other Mac apps like Mail or TextEdit, without opening Pixelmator.

With Continuity features such as iCloud Drive and Handoff, Pixelmator for iPad makes it easy to synchronize your images across iPads and Macs and pick up on your tablet right where you left off in Pixelmator for Mac, and vice versa.
