Pixelmator has announced that its Pixelmator Photo app is switching to subscription pricing and revealed plans to launch a version of the app for Mac late this year or early next year.

Previously, Pixelmator Photo was priced at $7.99. It's now priced significantly higher at $4.99/month or $23.99/year. If you’ve already bought Pixelmator Photo, you get unlimited access without having to subscribe.

In a blog post, Pixelmator explains the issues it's had with a one time purchases, including:
1. Slower development
2. Paid upgrades can be too drastic
3. No upgrade discounts on the App Store
4. Users who buy early get more value than those who buy later
5. New users become more important than existing ones
6. No free trials on iOS and iPadOS
7. Lower prices of mobile apps
8. No unified purchases across macOS and iOS/iPadOS
