Hello friends,


I would like to allow the above parameter to allow arbitrary widths above 200px. As far as I can tell, the Shutters effect is the only one that allows easy "stepped" tiling (where in the selected content is repeated at a different height per row and column) and the size of the content you can repeat is directly limited by this parameter.

Thank you kindly!

Hi Horsemans.
On Pixelmator Pro, to get a value out of normal range, you can generaly hold down the option key and the slider will allow a greater range of values. Unfortunately this doesn't seem to work for the Shutter effect so I think that 200px is a hard limit at the moment (tested on 1.5.2 and 1.5.3 beta).
The folks at Pixelmator are pretty good at responding in these forums so hopefully you'll get a reply from someone on staff saying whether this is a possible change they will make down the line (edit: or if I've missed a trick and it is possible with the current versions).
If this gets buried in weekend traffic and you don't get a response here by early next week, I'd recommend dropping a line to and asking if this value can be increased in future versions.
All the best.

Yep, that's a hard limit for now but I'll add this to the feature request list and we'll see if there's anything we can do!
