The crop tool as a whole has been reworked to make use of machine learning, making it easier to crop photos so they look just the way you want them to, 7 new photographic overlays are also part of the refresh, explains the press release:

  • The Crop tool has been redesigned and now features an ML Crop button that provides suggestions for how you could crop your >- photos to make them more eye-catching.
  • The Crop tool will now be much faster with large documents that contain many layers.
  • New perspective correction sliders will let you adjust the perspective of images right in the Crop tool.
  • The Crop tool now features 7 photographic overlays, such as Rule of Thirds, Golden Ratio, and Golden Spiral.

The app has also added a Stroke with Brush feature that facilitates painting with the app’s brushes along the path of shapes and image layers. The feature joins a new brush picker and an option for smoothing strokes. Additionally, the Type tool has been updated to add a slider that quickly resizes text and the ability to control paragraph spacing.

Pixelmator Pro also gains a new Quick Fill feature that allows users to fill images, shapes, and text layers with a color “using the magic of drag and drop.”
