While Pixelmator does not have the same huge set of capabilities as Photoshop, it is working toward boosting the app's profile with enough high-end features to give photographers a meaningful choice. The price is $30, compared with Adobe's monthly subscription fee of $10 for the Photography Bundle or $20 for Photoshop alone. Pixelmator 3.1 is available only on the Mac App Store and is a free upgrade for all versions purchased on the MAS. A 30-day free trial is also available from the company's website.
