Pixelmator Releases Draftsman 1.2


Pixelmator has released Version 1.2 of their Draftsman software, updating the GPU-powered image editing tool to create, edit, and enhance still images.

“Now with powerful, but easy-to-use rulers, guides, curves, auto enhance, color balance, and polygonal lasso tools, Pixelmator provides users with an even wider range of creative opportunities,” said Saulius Dailide of the Pixelmator Team.

He said Pixelmator 1.2 introduces a powerful rulers tool, which is helpful for the exact positioning of images or elements. Additionally, users can adjust the rulers origin to measure from a specific point on an image and change the units of measurement to pixels, inches, centimeters, millimeters, points, picas, or percent. Guides appear as nonprinting lines that float over the image, which users can add, move, remove, and lock. They can also utilize the grid to lay out elements symmetrically and the snap feature to position selection edges precisely.

Pixelmator 1.2 is available to order for $59; it’s a free update to current Pixelmator customers. Pixelmator requires Mac OS X version 10.4.9 or later, but 10.5 is recommended.
