The Pixelmator Team on Thursday said its latest release, Pixelmator 2.2, topped 500,000 downloads in its first week on the Mac App Store, making it the most successful release in the company’s history.

The previous record for the company, held by Pixelmator 2.1, was 250,000 downloads in two weeks, according to company’s Web site.
