Pixelmator Pro Extension Adds Layers, RAW Editing and More to Apple Photos

Earlier today, popular macOS Photoshop alternative Pixelmator Pro just released a major update. Pixelmator Pro 1.4 ‘Hummingbird’ adds a slew of useful new features, but the biggest news is the addition of an Apple Photos extension that turns Apple’s built-in photos app into a full-blown editing suite by integrating all of Pixelmator’s features.

If you’re deeply ingrained in the Apple ecosystem, you know the benefits of using Apple Photos. iCloud syncing means that your photos are always up to date on every device, seamlessly. But despite adding some slightly more advanced editing features into Photos back in 2017, the app is still miles behind RAW editors like Lightroom or graphics editors like Photoshop. Or it was.

With the release of Pixelmator Pro 1.4 Hummingbird, you can add layer-based workflow, RAW editing, digital brushes and every other Pixelmator Pro features directly into Apple Photos. The big advantage is obvious: “layers and other nondestructive changes directly to your Photos library and sync between computers via iCloud.”

Here’s a quick look at how the new Pixelmator Pro extension works:
