One of our favorite Mac apps is the beneficiary of a 50% discount today: Pixelmator for OS X is now $14.99. This powerful photo-editing software regularly goes for $30, today is the first time that we’ve seen it at this price in seven months. It is a match of the lowest that we’ve seen it go for.

Since the beginning, we’ve found Pixelmator to be an excellent alternative to other photo editing programs, such as Adobe Photoshop. Not only for its cost effective price but also for the powerful editing tools that make this the perfect software for hobbyist photographers and prosumers alike. Pixelmator has an all-time rating of 4.5/5 stars by over 3,600 App Store users.
