Not feeling good about paying hundreds for Photoshop? You have choices, and one of the better ones has a new look, feel, drawing tools, shape shapes and, yes, it’s got lots of Lion above and below the skin.

Pixelmator 2 is now available and this release comes to market with a lot of new features, as well as the OS X 10.7 tweaks you’d expect:

The New iPod touch from MacMall.com • Healing Tool with Content-aware fill
• Smudge + Sponge + Burn + Dodge, Eyedropper, Pixel, Red Eye Tools
• Auto Save and Versions
• OS X 10.7 UI support new scrollers, gestures, buttons, menus, and more.
• Column and Row marquee tools
• New Gradient, Brushes editors
• Shadows and Highlights
• New, easier color choosing
• Content-aware Fill for selections
• Improved Quartz Composer support
• Support for PSD text layers
• And, much more…

Of course, you can still try it for free for 30 days. Pixelmator 2 ($29.99), a low introductory price that won’t last forever, is now available on the Mac App Store — mmm, automagically updates.

My image editing weapon of choice is Acorn.

Have you dumped Photoshop yet?
