Essential Apple Podcast 65: Andrius Gailiunas of Pixelmator

Recorded 26th November 2017

This week, being the week of Thanksgiving/Black Friday where the news is a little thin on the ground (unless you count the endless “Black Friday greatest deals ever” stuff) we are joined by Andrius Gailiunas from Pixelmator to talk about Pixelmator and the upcoming Pixelmator Pro.

On this week’s show:

  • All about Pixelmator
  • How closely do Pixelmator examine the competition before they decide what to include versus just figuring out on their own independently what they want?
  • Will the Pixelmator Pro app have a library/catalogue feature as Lightroom has?
  • How do Pixelmator see themselves in relation to the Photoshop / Lightroom / Affinity / Luminar / PhotoLine competition?
  • What do Pixelmator feel is the USP of the app?

About Simon Parnell

Co-host of the Essential Apple Podcast alongside Mark Chappell who lives in the far West of Wales, while I make my abode deep in the East of Suffolk.

Father, Husband, Mac Lover, DTP & Prepress Professional, Geek, Cook, Drinker of Wines, Beers & Spirits.

I am British, and now the “wrong” side of 50 years old, I am married and have 3 children.

I started working in a design studio in the early 80’s back in the days of Cow Gum, Rotring Pens and Scalpels. I moved on to using Macs in about 1989 (way back when 40MB Hard Drives were BIG and 8MB RAM was a top end spec, System 6.0.3 was the cutting edge and the IIcx I worked on set me back about £5000… eek!).

Since then I have worked on pretty much every generation of Macintosh and every Mac OS Apple have released. I have done design and pre-press work with a wide variety of “DTP” applications old, new, well known and obscure. I have a fascination with finding cheaper alternatives to the “big guns” so DTP can be accessible to everybody!

For the last 15+ years I have worked in a small print works close to my home doing design and pre-press work.
