I was looking for an alternative to Photoshop as it’s too expensive for what I need it for. Gimp comes highly recommended but a friend on Twitter (@purplelime) raves about Pixelmator so I downloaded a trial and was blown away by how cool it looks and it’s features. There was a competition to win a license on FruitBytes but since I was unsuccessful I bought my own license 🙂
Just need to locate some tutorials (what sites do people suggest?) so that I can get the best out of it. I plan on using it to create banners for a new website I will be managing – more on that to come.
