I like the Pixelmator app so far . I mostly use it for effects and cleaning up photos, as opposed to actually making a drawing or painting on there. Now that I have been going through the old photos from my folks, I have been using it to make those old pictures more presentable, too. Some of them have scratches and other blemishes that the repair tool can fix almost instantly. Between Pixelmator and Aviary, I can crop, enhance, and edit most of the pictures that have problems, or just need the colors sharpened up again. I have looked at the tutorials for the Mac version, and while it does do more things, and is undoubtedly worth more money, the app does everything that I need for what I use it for.
