I bought it long ago and I'm very happy with it for my needs - a very inexpensive simple Photoshop replacement. If it didn't exist, I would be in a bad place.

I still wish they'd add one feature that I sometimes need and feel very helpless without: http://choorucode.com/2010/02/08/irfanview-replicate-crop-on...

Trying to draw a pixel-precise selection with mouse when you have an exact number in mind (that would so easy to type) is extremely frustrating.

I'm also quite smitten with Pixelmator: it's full-featured, robust, cheap, fast & native! For my purposes, I honestly prefer it to the much clunkier and much more expensive Photoshop.

Have you tried using Pixelmator actions in Automator to replicate pixel-precise cropping? See http://imgur.com/nDTcxvS I recently processed hundreds of screenshots this way and it worked well.

And the lack of customizable hotkeys really starts to show after a few uses. Other than that, great product!

Only $30. Perpetual license. That's nice.

Pixelmator is great but sometimes feels a bit off with the pro vs amateur feature mix. This for example: http://www.pixelmator.com/tutorials/tools/move-tool/

They really need to make a Windows version. I will switch from Adobe Photoshop in an instant.

I thought this algo was patented by a university and licenses by Adobe.
