geez... it's not that I doubted you about the price

http://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/pixel...07963104?mt=12

kind of bummed out that I paid $29.99 way back when it was 1.X and the big thing was for those that bought it before it went to the Mac App Store they could get the upgrade to chameleon free...

kind of lets the wind out of the sails a bit!

awesome app though and worth every penny, at either price.

Agreed. I leveraged one of the advanced tutorials to turn a quick iPhone photo of my daughter at her dance recital into a portrait. The photo was taken during the intermission, and I wanted to clean it up and focus on my daughter. All in all it took me about an hour. Lots of ways it could be improved, and I see some obvious mistakes, but not bad for my first attempt.

Edit: Photos removed

I've removed the photos since this is a public forum and that's my baby girl.

One of the things I like a lot about this program are the tutorials. There are a lot of tutorials available on their website, and they provide a lot of really good information. Best of all, most of the tutorials also provide PXM file with all the individual layers, so you can reverse engineer things, look at specific settings if you want more detail, and generally get a really good idea for how they did what they did. I'm having a lot of fun with the software, and I'm learning a lot!

For example, when I had photoshop I would have created my avatar by finding a background that I liked, and pasting a Lightning logo on top of it. With this software, with the exception fo the logo, everything is created from scratch. So much fun!!

Pixelmator can open and use Photoshop files. Another bonus.
