Pixelmator version 2.1.1 has officially been released. And while many would assume this is nothing more than a small point release considering the previous version was 2.1 — this one brings a new feature along with a handful of improvements and a resolution for a number of other issues. The updated Pixelmator app is available by way of the Mac App Store as well as direct from the Pixelmator website. In short, if you are running Pixelmator — you can update as of today. That said, lets get into the new feature, the all-new Healing Tool. According to the folks at Pixelmator;

“This update brings a radically improved Healing Tool. Now you can easily remove image imperfections or just about any image element you want, so your pictures look their absolute best.”

More to the point here, it was noted that the new Healing Tool is 20 times faster than in previous versions (and 10 times faster than in Photoshop). Otherwise, the improvements come for saving images, Undo and Redo and Quick Look. Also worth noting, the user interface has been updated and should now look better on a Retina display, you have have the ability to temporarily disable Alignment Guides with the Command key and False Color, Mask to Alpha and Circular Wrap effects added. Finally, for those curious about those remaining ‘other issues’ — here is how that list plays out;
