Le très populaire Pixelmator a reçu aujourd’hui une nouvelle mise à jour numérotée 2.6 sur iOS. Au programme des nouveautés, on note l’arrivée de plusieurs améliorations et corrections de bugs, mais surtout d’un un outil incroyable de sélection rapide, et un outil de sélection magnétique puissant et précis.

Avec le nouvel outil de sélection magnétique, l’utilisateur peut rapidement sélectionner et avec précision des objets complexes. Il suffit de tracer les bords d’un objet quelconque d’une image et regarder l’outil enclencher automatiquement une sélection précise autour de l’objet en question.


Avec le tout nouvel outil de sélection rapide, l’utilisateur peut effectuer des sélections très précises par simple glisser sur les zones de l’image. Après avoir choisi l’outil de sélection magnétique, il suffit de commencer votre sélection en le faisant glisser sur le bord d’un objet que vous souhaitez sélectionner. Lorsque vous déplacez votre doigt, l’outil se met automatiquement autour de l’objet, ce qui simplifie grandement la sélection de l’objet.

Cette nouvelle mouture a aussi eu droit à des améliorations en grand nombre que voici :

Selection improvements:
• When making selections, you can now tap Invert to invert those selections.
• The outline of selections made with the Color Selection Tool is more precise thanks to a content-aware smoothing algorithm.
• The all-new marching ants design improves performance and has ants that actually march around your selections.
• The Color Selection Tool is now faster (especially on older devices).
• Added a Create New selection mode, which is now the default.
• A live preview of your final selection is now shown when using the Add or Subtract selection modes.
• You can now transform selections in the Arrange pane.
• Selections now snap to layers and the canvas, just like layers do (but you can turn this off by turning off Guides).
• Selections made with the Free Selection, Rectangle Selection, and Ellipse Selection tools now always snap to pixels, meaning there won’t be any unwanted, half-transparent pixels at the edges of a selection when you copy, delete, or transform it.
• The selection paths of the Free Selection Tool are now made up of twice as many points, which makes them smoother.
• When you open up Select with an already selected area, the selection tool that you were using previously will automatically become active.
• When moving a selected area, dragging inside the selection will move it, and dragging outside the selection will now pan the image.
• The selection outline that is added as you select with the Free Selection Tool now has a subtle animation.
• When making selections with the Quick Selection or Color Selection tools, the selection preview now fades into the marching ants.
• Tapping Undo after transforming a selected area sometimes used to make that area flicker. Fixed.
• When using the Free Selection Tool, quickly tapping could sometimes make really small selections instead of adding points. Fixed.

Improvements and bug fixes:
• Use a two finger double tap to zoom in or zoom to fit.
• The 9:16 aspect ratio is now in the list of ratios in Crop.
• The request to let Pixelmator access your Photos library wouldn’t appear if you tried to save to Photos before having opened an image from Photos – it does now.
• If you use Copy to Photos to save a new image to your Photos library, you’ll now be able to use Save to Photos to save over that new image.
• If you drag a layer that is not selected (the transform handles aren’t visible) and it does not fit in the screen, the layer will not be moved. To move it – first, tap to select it.
• When you hold two fingers to rotate a layer but one or both fingers are outside the currently selected layer, other layers in your image will not be selected – first tap to select the layer you want to rotate, then hold two fingers inside it to start rotating.
• Zoom animations are a little more smooth as they now have subtle ease-out transitions.

Apple Pencil improvements and bug fixes:
• When using Apple Pencil, the brush size of the Quick Selection Tool is pressure-sensitive.
• Selections made using Apple Pencil and the Free Selection Tool are now more accurate.
• The transform handle area is now smaller, giving you more precision.

Pixelmator for iPhone improvements:
• The Select and Distort tool choosers are now laid out more symmetrically.
• The selection mode in the Select tool chooser is highlighted more clearly.
• Tapping to choose a selection mode will now close the Select tool chooser.
