I know this is not the first time that I'll post this link but really everyone using Pixelmator should check out this video podcast. Very instructional and easy to follow tutorials. Pixelmator can do a lot more one would think with just a little knowledge of how the different tools work together.

Also for all VLC user. Go and get the MacRabbit icon makeover ... just makes it look as good as the app really is.
