The iOS edition of Pixelmator, a Photoshop alternative, yesterday added support for the new 2018 iPad Pro display sizes and the double-tap gesture for Apple Pencil 2 in the latest update.

The update also brings a number of bug fixes and stability improvements.

Developers listed these bug fixes, improvements and new features in the changelog:

  • The Pixelmator interface has now been optimized for the newest iPad Pro.

  • Wherever possible, Pixelmator will respect your global settings for the double-tap gesture.
  • The Noise, Hue, Miniaturize and Hue effects were not working in the Photos extension. Fixed.
  • The canvas was being incorrectly centered in both the app and the Pixelmator Photos extension. Fixed.
