Yup, November 29th. That is the day Pixelmator Pro will be released.

We can’t wait for you to get your hands on what might be the most beautiful, innovative, and inspiring app we’ve ever made. It really is that great.

We didn’t announce the Pixelmator Pro release date earlier because we wanted to take as much time as necessary to build a solid v.1.0. Pixelmator Pro is huge and there are just so many new things and technologies to take care of to make sure everything works as it should. But the current Pixelmator Pro 1.0 Whirlwind beta version I’m running is already rock solid so why not announce the release date is most likely to be November 29th.

Oh, and Pixelmator Pro 1.0 Whirlwind will launch on the Mac App Store with a price of $59 as we want as many of you as possible to be able to afford it. However, we don’t think the price will stay that low for too long. It will go up as soon as we ship free updates with major new features (that are not yet announced but are in the works already) as well as Pixelmator Pro for iPad (which is a great friend of Pixelmator Pro for Mac), Vectormator, and more. The intended original price for Pixelmator Pro is $99 and we plan to ship big updates quickly.

    I am a Senior Contributor at Photoshop User and Visuals Producer.

    I wanted to know if the Pixelmator Pro can be reviewed for both magazines.
    FYI, I always send a link or screenshot of the review as soon as it appears.

    Many thanks.

    the day November 6, 2017 I bought Pixelmator v 3.1 Mount Whitney (71005) in the Apple Store, and wanted to know if I can upgrade my version of the new Pixelmator Pro or I can buy it for the price difference or have to buy a new license Pixelmator PRO,
    Best regards

    Is it safe to assume that Vectormator is a new product and that it will be available for both Mac and iOS (iPad)?

    I have had Pixelmator (Amateur?), forever, and wondering if there might be a separate upgrade price for the Pro version? And/Or, will Pixelmator continue to be upgraded in the App Store for bug fixes, etc?

    Hi Guys,

    Can’t wait for this dedicated Mac app. PS6 is damn good but there are quite a few niggling compatibility issues I’m hoping whirlwind will address – direct compatibility with Photos app, for instance.
    I need to use this on my Mac and MacBook Pro laptop, too, for my photo art course. Will I be able to, without having to purchase twice – really important….as I’m broke!!! Great game Guys!!!

    I, too, would like an upgrade price to PRO as a long time supporter.
    I bought the original Pixelmator in 2009 (and still have the Serial Number.)

    Can you please confirm if Vectormator is a separate product or is it an upgrade to Pixelmator Pro? Really need SVG import/export file capability.
