Pixelmator has two versions — one for Mac and another for the iPhone/iPad. For iPhones and iPads, it’s downloadable at $4.99. For Mac, it’s $29.99. Both versions have almost the same features, but the Mac version can save in more file formats and has a more detailed interface.
Most of the tools and features available in Pixelmator are common to those already familiar with Adobe Photoshop. Editing functionalities such as layers, effects, brushes, filters, and retouching tools are present in both the iPad/iPhone version and the Mac version.
Pixelmator is made specifically for photo editing, digital painting, and graphic design in the iOS platform. Both versions can work together in a sense that you can start working on a project on your iPhone/iPad and continue working on it on your Mac.
