Did you know you can import Adobe® Photoshop® brushes into Pixelmator and use them just like the pre-installed brushes?
Simply download a brush package from any of numerous websites (myPhotoshopBrushes.com, QBrushes, BrushKing, etc), then unzip it, if necessary, to get the .abr file.
Open the Brushes pallet, View > Show Brushes, or by double-clicking any of the brush tools in the Pixelmator toolbox. Click the little Gear icon, ⚙, in the bottom right corner.
