Pixelmator Pro is available from the Mac App Store on Mac devices only. To download it:

1. Launch the App Store app on your Mac.

If you're using the App Store for the first time, you'll need to create a new Apple ID.

2. Find Pixelmator Pro on the App Store

Search for Pixelmator Pro using the search field in the top-right of the screen or click the link below:


Note: There are two ways you can purchase Pixelmator Pro — as a standalone copy or the Pixelmator Pro upgrade bundle. The upgrade bundle is intended for those users who already own a copy of the original Pixelmator and would like to upgrade to Pixelmator Pro with a discount. See Download the Pixelmator Pro upgrade bundle for more info. 

3. Head to the check-out. 
Click the price badge next to the app and follow the directions on the screen. You may be asked to enter your Apple ID password or other details.

Tip: If Pixelmator Pro doesn't show up or if you see an alert when trying to purchase it, double-check if you're running a compatible device. Due to the advanced technologies it uses, Pixelmator Pro requires macOS High Sierra or later macOS to run as well as a Metal-capable device.

4. Download and launch Pixelmator Pro.

Once you purchase Pixelmator Pro, the download should start automatically. There's nothing special you need to do to install the app once the download is complete — you can launch it from the Launchpad or the Applications folder on your Mac.

Tip: In case the initial download is interrupted and you cannot restart it, try rebooting your Mac. Once the Mac restarts, go to the App Store, then click your Apple ID in the sidebar on the left and find Pixelmator Pro in your list of purchases.

Note: If you see the Pixelmator Pro trial splash screen when you launch Pixelmator Pro, it suggests that you still have the Pixelmator Pro trial installed somewhere on your Mac. The Pixelmator Pro trial typically ends up in the Downloads folder on your Mac. You'd have to find it there and delete it.
