Hi I'm trying to open a Nikon raw file .nef ( taken direct from the camera using the camera connection kit) but when I import the image this is all pixelated. Any ideas thanks Chris

I'm having exactly the same problem. Specifically, every image is changed to being only 160px wide by 120px tall upon opening. Have tried reinstalling the app and experimenting in every way I can think of. I'm on an iPad Pro so pretty certain it's not an issue that the photos are too big for the iPad to handle.

This makes the app essentially useless for me—any ideas, anyone?

Seems that Pixelmator is importing a low resolution preview of the image. What happens if you do a workaround like saving the image from the connection kit to the iPad's camera roll and open the image in Pixelmator from the camera roll?

Any word on this? Having the very same problem.
Just downloaded the app for the first time. On an iPad Pro.
Opens pictures from camera roll 160 x 120.
Deleted the app, reinstalled. No change.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi ! I've been through the same problems, ans it seems like editing the .nef file into the stock Photo app is solving the issue.
Just crop it, or change a little something unnoticeable, then save it, and try to open it again in Pixelmator.
It worked fine for me !
I hope this is helpful !
