Hey everyone!

We all know that Pixelmator for iPad is out. We just don't have a good place to discuss about it. I've created this forum so we can all share some tips and tricks, tutorials, guides, ask questions, report problems, and so on.

I'm starting with some Pixelmator for iPad video guides we created so far.

Black and white effect:


Bokeh effect:


Also, if you create something really nice, share it with us all!

Is there a way to import Photoshop brushes into Pixelmator? If so, how? I'm not able to figure it out.

Hey guys! I am using Pixelmator for one main purpose at this moment in time, namely adding captions to images. So I can create a text box on a photo and write the caption in. But what I'd like to do is run the caption beneath the image on a plain white background so that the caption itself is easily legible. How do I create a plain white background layer on which to place my text box with the caption text? Thanks — love the software!

If you don't want to hide portions of the image you can do the following.

1) Increase the canvas size (edit menu) at the bottom of the document.
2) Add a new layer and fill it with white and place this layer all the way at the bottom of the layers palette.
3) Add a type layer and type your text and place this text over the white part of the document.

I find Pixelmator's layer palette for iOS to be inferior to Pixelmator's layer palette for OSX/MacBookPro (which closely resembles Photoshop's layer palette.)For example, showing and hiding layers is so much faster and less cumbersome on the OSX application's checkboxes than iOS's pullout menus. Is there any reason the iOS layers palette can't be like the OSX version?

Recent news is that Pixelmator Pro will cost $59 for macOS but does anyone know what the price will be for the Pro iOS version? My entire workflow has changed from Photoshop/InDesign to Pixelmator/Pages and I like it that way!
