The makers of the Pixelmator editing app have today announced an update to the iOS version of the app. Pixelmator 2.2 is now optimized for the processing power of the iPad Pro and comes with support for the Apple Pencil and the 3D Touch feature on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus

On the iPad Pro there is also a new palm rejection feature that allows you to users to rest your palm on the device's 12.9-inch screen when drawing or editing with the Apple Pencil, just as you would when drawing on a sheet of paper. The Pencil works with 50 of Pixelmator's brushes and, thanks to the iPad Pro's desktop-level processing power, the app supports editing of images up to 100MP in size. 

The new version also makes use of the pressure-sensitive display on the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus. The 3D Touch feature allows you to trigger Quick Action shortcuts by hard-pressing the home screen and the thickness of your brush stroke now changes with the pressure you apply while painting on the latest iPhone models. Further improvements and additions include a collection of artist-designed brushes, improved crop performance, an auto-straighten feature, and the option to increase font size up to 1000 pixels. The latest version of Pixelmator for iOS can be downloaded from the App Store for $4.99.
