The popular graphics and design Mac app, Pixelmator, has been discounted 50% and is currently available for $14.99.  This app retails for $29.99 and is rated 4.5 stars in iTunes.  CNET had some great things to say about this app, “If you’re looking for a full-featured image editor at a relatively low price, Pixelmator fills the bill nicely. Sporting a smooth Mac-friendly interface, Pixelmator offers a layout much like Adobe Photoshop…”  Also, new Mac owners can rejoice as this app supports Retina displays.

Pixelmator takes full advantage of the latest Mac technologies, giving you speedy, powerful tools that let you touch up and enhance images, draw or paint, apply gorgeous effects, and just have fun with your pictures. Once your images are ready, access them anywhere with iCloud, send them to iPhoto or Aperture, email, print, or save them to popular image formats, or share them through Facebook, Flickr, and more—all right from Pixelmator.

And the new Pixelmator 2.1 is optimized for the new Retina display on the MacBook Pro, with full support for OS X Mountain Lion.
