Pixelmator has announced a major update to Pixelmator Photo which brings AI-powered selective adjustments and a new name -- Photomator.

A new update for Photomator is now available, bringing a ton of fantastic new features, changes, and improvements. But hold on, did we say Photomator? That's right — the app now has a snappier and catchier new name! To complete the makeover, version 2.3 also features a beautiful, refreshed design, but the biggest highlight of this update lies beyond the looks.

We're excited to introduce an all-new and incredibly powerful selective adjustments feature that will completely change the way you edit photos in Photomator. From now on, you can easily select and edit specific areas of a photo using a variety of selections and masks, and even make selections automatically, using AI.

What's New In This Version:
Photomator 2.3 brings incredibly powerful selective adjustments with the ability to make selections of people, backgrounds, and skies automatically using AI, create gradient and brush-based selections, and a whole lot more.

• Pixelmator Photo now has a simpler new name — Photomator — and features a refreshed, more modern design.
• You can now select and edit specific areas in photos, without affecting the rest of the photo using powerful selective adjustments.
• Use the magic of machine learning to automatically select common areas in photos, such as sky, people, and backgrounds, or make selections manually.
• Paint over the areas of a photo you want to adjust with a brush. Easily adjust the brush size, softness, and opacity, or switch to Erase mode if you've accidentally selected too much.
• Add customizable linear and radial gradient selections to photos to create smooth transitions between edited and unedited areas. Easily change the gradient position, size, rotation, and blending using handy on-image controls.
• Adjust specific colors or entire color ranges in photos by selecting them using an eyedropper.
• Create additional color adjustment layers to experiment with different edits and easily compare them.
• Add selective adjustments to photos by tapping the Add button at the top of the Color Adjustments pane and choosing a selection option.
• Quickly switch between different selections by tapping their corresponding icons directly on a photo.
• Keep track of all your selections in an all-new Layers browser at the top of the Color Adjustments pane.
• In the Layers browser, turn the selections on or off to hide the applied adjustments without resetting them. This lets you apply multiple different edits to the same area of the photo and compare them.
• Combine multiple selections using blend modes to refine the selected areas or create striking artistic effects. In the More menu next to an existing selection, choose Add or Subtract, and choose an option.
• Easily switch to a different blend mode of a combined selection by tapping More and choosing Add, Subtract, or Intersect from the Blending Mode menu.
• Find options for renaming, duplicating, inverting, moving, or deleting selections in the More menu next to each selection layer.
• Adjust the intensity of edits applied to each selection by dragging the Intensity slider at the bottom of the Layers browser.
• Easily toggle selection previews on and off by tapping More at the top of the Color Adjustments pane and selecting or deselecting Show Mask Overlay.

You can download Photomator from the App Store for free.
