Pixelmator 2.0 Chameleon goes live tomorrow (update: live now)

Update: October 27th: It is now live – go get it!

For those who don’t need all of the bells and whistles (and overhead) of Adobe’s Photoshop for photo editing, another product has taken off in the Mac platform.  Pixelmator is a $30 Mac App, now in the App Store which gives you 80+% of what Photoshop offers.

Users who buy the current $29 version will be upgraded for free tomorrow.

All the new features after the break.
