AppleScript is the Apple-created scripting language that lets you
directly control apps using instructions written in intuitive,
English-like terms. And almost every part of Pixelmator Pro is now
scriptable, so for pretty much anything you can do with the app,
you can now script those same tasks. Say you have tens or even
hundreds of images. You might need to export and optimize them, or
change the color of certain objects in them, or maybe even add
annotations, taking the text from a Numbers spreadsheet and
automatically placing it in Pixelmator Pro. Thanks to AppleScript
support, you can now do all that, plus a whole lot more.
In our quest to make AppleScript support as great and
full-featured as possible, we collaborated with Sal Soghoian, the
legendary user automation guru, who served at Apple for 20
years as the Product Manager of Automation Technologies, including
AppleScript, Services, the Terminal, Apple Configurator and
Automator, among others.
Fabulous news for Mac power users. When’s the last time a major pro app added serious AppleScript support? Pixelmator even commissioned Soghoian to create a great tutorial that serves as both an introduction to AppleScript generally and scripting Pixelmator Pro specifically.
