Photo browser in Pixelmator!

This is truly a huge advantage of Pixelmator over pro applications such as Photoshop CS3. You can easily bring up a Photo Browser, very similar to the one in all iLife applications. It will let you load pictures from your iPhoto library without even having to find them in the Finder. Simply saving them should automatically update the version in iPhoto. The biggest drawback I have seen is that it doesn't look like it can interact with applications such as Aperture. To get the Photo Browser, simply press "Command - 8" or go to the "View" menu and choose "Show Photo Browser".

A future tip will explain how to incorporate applications such as Photoshop and Pixelmator in your Aperture workflow (and to deal with RAW files in these apps).

you can also use the photo browser from within the Adobe Photoshop Open dialog -

In the left side bar instead of choosing a hard drive, choose Media, and you will have access to your projects and files within Aperture and iPhoto.

i don't like pixelmator, it's not very good in that when i save a picture that i've moved around the canvas it saves it to like, where it would be if i pasted it, rather than what i moved it to. really, it's disappointing.
