Pixelmator is bringing its photo and image editor to the iPhone soon, as announced in a blog post today. Pixelmator was exclusive to the Mac until late last year when the developers ported the application to the iPad. It is now nearing completion on the iPhone version.

The especially good news for current Pixelmator users is that the iPhone version will not be released as a separate app. An update to the iPad app will make the software universal, so you can buy the app now and get the iPhone update for free when it is released. Even better, Pixelmator for iPad is currently on sale to celebrate the announcement

The update will also include new Distort Tools, as seen in the Mac version, to enable warping and morph effects for transforming your images.

You can download Pixelmator for iOS and Pixelmator for Mac from the App Store. The company pushed a new update for the Mac version (incorporating Force Touch) last week.
