I posted the history of the icon a month ago in response to this.
I really like it, though I think it's a tad too dark
Less classic, more artsy, i like it.
Looks great. Was worried that they would get sucked into the 'flat minimal' icon style as well. Glad they kept their personality.
Appreciate the effort and thoughtfulness of it, don't like the design at all - feels blurred rather than painted, needs texture through the paint and a little more edge definition to dial this back. If the blurring is intentional, I still don't like it.
I actually love this, great way to stand out from the crowd
Icon is t h i c c (bottom heavy). While I'm sure it's pretty close to actual center, it certainly looks and feels off-center. I feel like they could've given a little more padding around the "art" or moved it up slightly to solve that issue. I like it a lot though. I'm happy they stuck to their guns and didn't flatten the shit out of it.
As a user, I like Pixelmator and use it.
As a designer, I think the overall Apple-ish look of everything is lame. Previous icon was just of-course-its-like-photos type. There's so much potential for a custom, bold style eg. Dropbox. This new icon seems like a good step.
