Pixelmator 1.0 Integrates Automator

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](http://www.tuaw.com/2007/05/31/tuaw-exclusive-video-of-pixelmator-in-action/) 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](/archives/category/workflows-actions/photoshop/) Photoshop Automator actions, but they are all hampered by that app's sluggish file handling).



  1. Apaprently it was far too cool and powerful to do the promotional images on their website with. They were all done in Photoshop…

    I call shenanigans.

  2. There is a fair bit of skepticism about Pixelmator, to be sure. The video goes a long way to credibility, but we’ll find out soon enough.
