10 Inspiring Pixelmator Tutorials from PXM Tuts
Art and design is about bringing your imagination into reality and finding the most frictionless way to accomplish this goal. I’ve always had the need to create things, to get my ideas on paper, canvas, something, typically using analog mediums to get the results I wanted. When I switched over to the digital realm I instantly fell in love with the ease of quickly getting a vision started and realizing it within hours not days.
My biggest frustration was that many art & image editing applications all claimed to be the best and yet had such a wide variety of opposing layouts and workflows that just didn’t fit me. Photoshop you say? This was out of my reach for my budget at the time as is the case with many today. I needed to find something affordable, fast and powerful. Pixelmator seemed to fit the niche I was after. After years of using Pixelmator in my work-flow I now share my passion and knowledge with the community through the forums and have teamed up with designer and developer, Ashley Rich to create the tutorial site PXM-Tuts.
