If only they'd get their CMYK act together.

True. There are ways around it (using ColorSync to handle conversion), though it's a step few seem willing to take.

The few comments from the Pixelmator Team seem to be expressing the attitude that it's a "pro" feature that its users don't really need... or that most print houses today accept RGB so what's the point, etc.

However... there are so many people who have requested CMYK, I don't know how they can keep putting it off. I do believe it will make an appearance eventually.

In the meantime, I have to say I'm impressed with Pixelmator's continually free upgrades... I wonder when / if that will become unprofitable / unmanageable.

In the meantime, for a great many users, Pixelmator remains the bee's knees, man!

Converting after the fact is huge risk that no one who knows what they are doing would take. Ditto for sending RGB to a printer -- you can't take someone elses' word for it that the conversion will happen without a dramatic colour shift. The two colour spaces are so radically different, you are just asking for trouble.

Those in or closely related to the graphics industry often forget that the vast majority of users have and never will have any need for CMYK. Pixelmator is designed for and aimed at that portion of the market.

Those who do need CMYK currently have little choice but to hand over an arm and a leg to Adobe and continue doing so on a sickeningly routine basis. That despite the fact that the latest and greatest version is seldom much if any improvement over other recent versions.

That said it would be nice if the folks at Pixelmator did put out a CMYK pro version at say around $100.

For those who may be interested, the Pixelmator team is releasing it's "Pixelmator Pro" app on 29 November. $59 launch price, ramping up to $99 in the future. Available via the Mac App Store.

For me the big problem with Pixelmator revolved around one issue. The lack of the ability to select a portion of an image with the magic wand then apply a select similar command. This is a sequence I use all the time, and work-arounds in Pixelmator proved unwieldy.

Perhaps this is finally addressed. Still looking for an image processing app on the newer computer. In the meantime everything photo is being done on the old MacPro.

There is an option to "Edit--> Select colour" with a slider to control its reach, but that may not be what you're looking for.

For those who are still considering less expensive alternatives to Photoshop, Pixelmator Pro is one heck of an option. And this article from The Verge touts its efforts to bring the classic CSI trope "zoom & enhance" closer to reality:

AI super resolution lets you ‘zoom and enhance’ in Pixelmator Pro
