Photoshop Alternative Pixelmator for Mac Users

Pixelmator photo editing

I have been using Pixelmator to make basic editing on my photos.
If you are a Mac user and do not want to pay for Photoshop Elements or monthly payment Adobe Creative Cloud / Photoshop CC, you can start with much affordable solution. It is simple to use, very effective and you can get good result for your photo editing needs. It is super fast loading, works just fine with Wacom tablets. It has plenty filter effects to play with.
