About this tutorial:
Pixelmator is one of those hidden gems and often overlooked by many. Which is a shame because from my experience it actually out performs Adobe Photoshop Elements in both features and price point. At around $29.99 USD at the time of this post and the fact that it now fully supports 16bit color per channel when PS Elements still does not, makes this a real competitor in the photo editing software market. The latest release 3.2 Sandstone offers many features that are just hard to over look. Many tools in Pixelmator IMHO work better then similar tools found in Photoshop CC. The Magic Wand tool for example is quicker and smarter about selecting a subject from its background. In this video tutorial I wanted to start out with the very basics of photo editing and focus more on showing the user where they can acquire this product and how to do basic exposure, color and contrast adjustments that are almost always used in processing photos on a daily basis.
