i tried it, and got disappointed. Why?
because it doesn't have the probably most important and basic feature that photographers often use: shadows and highlights.
Almost every photo has some flaws, and majority of them are little underexposure resulting in shadows, and overexposure resutling in highlights.
In PSE it can be fixed in less than a second!
In PM you need to use brushes, layers....
For me it's to cumbersome.
I prefer PSE - it does this stuff so good, that just for this feature I'd keep using it.

Preller please, I am not your Dude.

I do not want to waste time to write here things that are on Pixelmator weblog. Just go there and have some reading to understand why some people have a bad feeling with this transition. To understand that some people do not want to pay twice for the same application.
You are free to believe whatever you want from PM. I trusted them when I paid weeks ago the full price for their software. Now they ask me to pay to enter their new shop : but what do I have to pay for except something I have already paid ? What will be in the 2.x and the new Mac App Store update I have to pay for ? Many people asked PM team : no answers yet.

I wrote my previous comment to warn people here about the situation. I've studied the in and the out of the situation and my conclusion is : Pixelmator team choose the worst way to do the transition to Mac Apple Store. Hope it will help some.

dude, you'll get free upgrades until version 2 via sparkle, what's your problem?

Pixelmator enter the Mac App Store.
The policy they adopt is just too bad for registred user : in simple words "old" registred users have to pay again for the application.
I wrote us and many users did the same about this disgusting act over their previous customer.

Maybe the application is good but as for me I do not trust them for now.

I use Pixelmator on a daily basis. Not only because of its beautiful Interface but also for the blistering speed of it. Well worth the price and my image editor of choice.

Pixelmator is a very good Photoshop alternative for Mac. It doesn't contain all the features of Photoshop, but for the price it does a lot and does it well. Pixelmator is very easy to learn, especially for anyone who has used Photoshop before. It contains many of the tools from Photoshop. One of Photoshops very useful tools, the magnetic lasso, is missing from Pixelmator. Pixelmator opens and saves as Photoshop documents so it is compatible with Photoshop. Pixelmator has a very nice interface and works well, but also has a few bugs. Another thing I would like to see in Pixelmator that Photoshop has is the history palette. Overall, Pixelmator is a very great piece of software at a very great price!

Indeed, the program lacks some basic functionality....

I've been watching Pixelmator for a while and it's really starting to mature into a useful product. That said, if this app aims to appeal to web designers it's in desperate need of layer groups, layer effects and vector shapes. It also sorely needs some sort of sane palette management. Although it's a good looking app, it seriously has one of the most cluttered interfaces I've ever seen.

Pixelmator 1.5 has gained a couple of badly missed features and is now finally mature enough that I don't miss Photoshop all the time.

I like this app, but it DESPERATELY needs Layer folders. The app has progressed to to a point where most of my psds look great in it. I'd much rather open them in Pixelmator than Photoshop. But all the layer folders are jacked, so I cant really work with it.

I really, really hope they fix this. I'd even purchase it again
