The Pixelmator Pro team''s latest update is version 3.0, which provides a whole new way to create reusable stencils for your Pixelmator projects. The update also includes 200 premium design templates and mockups, and the enhanced placeholder capabilities allow users to create their own.
The templating features allow for a particular layer content to be marked replaceable, which adds a little plus button for one-click swapping of one image for another. Pixelmator will also provide a selection of options to the user of the template.
The color selections in a Pixelmator document are now located centrally under a new Document Colors button in the toolbar. Simply modify a shared color in that panel to modify all references to that color in one go.
The app now has 200 templates integrated into the new project browser, allowing users to make posters, shareable social media square and portrait formats, and screenshot mockups for Apple devices for Mac, iPad Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro. The packages are of high quality and are organized by brand, so each template in the group has a common design language and theme.
While I was aware of some layout issues, I couldnt find a way to add a custom template to the gallery, but was unable to find a solution.
The new Pixelmator Pro templates are available as part of a free download in the Mac App Store starting today. Pixelmator Pro is priced at $39.99. For new customers, see the developers website for more information.
