Popular Mac app Pixelmator Pro released its latest version today with the launch of Pixelmator Pro 3.0. The update to the image-editing app includes 200 new design templates, custom layouts, and a machine learning-based feature the company calls “Smart Replacement.”

Update comes after the company announced earlier this year that Pixelmator Photo is coming to the Mac after it was previously only available on iOS and iPadOS. While Pixelmator Photo is primarily used for photo editing, Pixelmator Pro offers users more creative freedom and a more robust feature set.

Today’s update includes 200 new design templates ranging from social media sharing platforms, resumes, posters and even cards. According to the company, these templates are fully customizable and even offer branding options.

Once the user logs in and chooses to create a new document, they are presented with an application catalog with categories and a choice of brand templates. Templates are designed to provide continuity across media.

“The easy-to-use design templates in Pixelmator Pro allow absolutely anyone to create stunning visuals in minutes,” said Simonas Bastis, lead developer on the Pixelmator team, in a launch announcement. “And with a range of gorgeous, fully customizable layouts also included in today’s update, users can instantly see these designs come to life right in Pixelmator Pro.”

In addition to customizable templates, the company now allows users to create a layout of their design and edit that layout with alternate elements. Mockups can be designed for various forms of print, Mac, iPhone and iPad.

At the bottom of the left sidebar, users can find the layouts section and choose which medium they want to promote their design on. By clicking the plus button, users can place their design on the layout and click the alternatives button (usually in the lower right corner) to change the lighting settings. Lighting effects can reflect direct light, various types of plant shadows, soft shadows, as well as direct and diffused light.

Users also have the option to change the entire color scheme of the layout they are editing.

In addition, the company released the “Smart Swap” feature.

This feature will allow you to replace the design element with the user’s photo, as well as remove the background, scale the image if it is of low quality, and find the optimal placement. This concept is supposed to help designers save time and allow images to fit seamlessly into the design.

Existing subscribers will have access to the update, while new users can purchase it for $39.99.
