As of 2.2.1, it has more than 80 image filters and color adjustments, some of which are unique to Pixelitor. Some of the gradients can also be found only here.

Note that Pixelitor is intended to be powerful rather than simple. You should have some experience with image editors in order to use it, because there isn't much documentation available yet, and many concepts (layers, blending modes, Gaussian blurring, unsharp masking, histograms, etc.) are the same.

What's New:

  • Image centered in the internal window
  • "Allow Growing" option for the Crop Tool
  • More zoom levels and "Ctrl + mouse wheel" zooming
  • New "Underwater" filter
  • The "Pinch, Bulge, Twirl" and "Swirl" filters were unified into one filter
  • Minor bugfixes
