Pixelmator Team has announced a pretty slick looking new image-editing application, Pixelmator. The entire UI is based on the HUD-style floating palates that have started to crop up in OS X apps, and has a pretty impressive feature-set. Pixelmator promises fully integrated Automator support, which “allow the user to quickly enhance, resize, or transform images, add any special effects, and even export images to more than 100 different file formats.” It will be available in late-july for $59.
UPDATE: TUAW now has a video of Pixelmator in action. If this thing is really as fast and slick as presented, it could be a killer platform for Automator image processing (there are lots of great Photoshop Automator actions, but they are all hampered by that app’s sluggish file handling).
