    I haven't used it yet, but it seems to be a step up to Pixelmator's game — one that's slightly more geared to photographers. So, I do think they're competing with Lightroom.

    Photoshop for better or worse is less relevant than it was a few years ago and using it for more than heavy-duty illustration and graphic design doesn't make a lot of sense, so there's no reason for Pixelmator to stay positioned as "the alternative to Photoshop".

    Overall I think it's a pretty smart move for them to invest in doing their own thing and hope it pays off the same way it paid off for Bohemian with Sketch.
