For those considering a switch from Photoshop, or even an upgrade from the base version of Pixelmator, you can get Pixelmator Pro today for $27.99 CAD. That's a darn good deal, IMHO....

Been awhile since I tried Pixelmator.

For me the deal breaker was always the lack of a feature similar to the 'select similar' command in PhotoShop. I use this command all the time as skies often require a different treatment than the rest of a photo, and without that feature working around tree branches is a nightmare.

Their selection tools have had major upgrades over the past several versions. You can download Pixelmator Pro for free and try it out before you buy....

The software I'm designing is very simple in design, so I often create layers that are simple rectangles (a left column, a header bar, etc.). Often I need to quickly change the colour of a rectangle, or turn it into a gradient, or add a border... all things I can do with layer styles. Are there any Pixelmator experts out there that know how I can do this?

Androscoggin, you certainly could go the layer styles route. There are many tutorials and examples available at the Pixelmator website.

Here's a review from January on Pixelmator as a Photoshop Replacement.

You might also consider using Keynote! It's more powerful, flexible and useful than people realize:
