Hopefully I will be able to replace ImageReady CS2 with Pixelmator!

edit: still a few rough corners (missing options for dithering for GIF and indexed PNG, seems like there's no optimisation past 128 colors, etc) but for a first release that supports web tools, it's excellent!

I still find myself gravitating towards PS more often, but I love this application.

If only Pixelmator would include support for the CMYK colour model; it could then compete with bigger fish than 'Elements'.
