Just bought Pixelmator on Sale for $14.99 in Mac App Store

Great tool if you can't afford Photoshop. Opens .psd files for editing layers too. Nice tutorials on YouTube including this one on how to create a logo with it (smart kid) :-)

@Ian. Thanks. The kid that made the video is pretty smart :-) I'm now looking for some good video tutorials on Pixelmator to create icons/logos. The Dave Hill effect is interesting :-) Might be something to use in splash screens :-)

I have heard good things about it. I know there was a free course on Udemy a month back.

Just got pixelmator last month..definitely a useful tool for making icons (and anything else)

My icon creation system is admittedly pretty ridiculous - I usually start in Gimp, then I generate a cool frame using "Icon Maker" (Mac App Store), then I add some cool effects using Pixelmator, the I round the corners and get all of my sizes using "Icons" (Mac App Store)

design isn't my strong suit :/

@Absentia. Thanks for the list of tools. Will definitely check them out. Design isn't my forte either, and I find I'm spending more time on that than some of the other things :-) I'm hoping to submit my app to iTunesConnect on Monday...if I can figure out a bug in Menu with Image rotation on iPad causing a freeze of the app :-)

Has anyone noticed that Puxelmator sometimes crashes when doing an export ? It seems to freeze up my whole Mac when that happens...
