Looking for a subscription-free alternative to Adobe Photoshop on Mac? Pixelmator Pro is a competent competitor that’s well worth checking out.

And during Black Friday, this proficient graphics editor is available to buy for a fairly meaty 50% off its usual price, taking it down to just $20.

Not familiar with it? Pixelmator Pro is a non-destructive, bitmap-based graphic editor with vector drawing support. It can be used to create graphics entirely from scratch and handle photo editing. The app gets regular (free) updates with new features, capabilities, and technologies.

But it’s about to get even better.

In a blog post on the Pixelmator blog, the team behind the tool tease say video editing is coming to Pixelmator Pro in a major update due this December. That update, like all future updates, is free to anyone who owns the app but, once launched, the price of the app is going to increase from $40 to $50-60.

During this Black Friday promotion, you can buy Pixelmator Pro for $19.99/£17.99 from the App Store on macOS. If you want to try before you buy you can download a Pixelmator Pro trail build from their website. This allows you to use the app and ALL of its features for free, for 14 7 days (it used to be 14).

But don’t hang about — Pixelmator say this Black Friday discount is the as low as the app will ever be, so if you like what you find, be sure to snag a copy while it’s on offer. Pixelmator Pro works with macOS 11 Big Sur and above and is fully optimized Apple silicon.
