Apple’s Mac App Store has minted one of its first millionaires.Pixelmator, a photo editing app that runs $30, just announced that it generated $1 million in sales in 20 days.

Pixelmator is the number 4 top grossing app in the U.S. which gives us some idea about sales for the Mac App Store.

Above it are Aperture, iPhoto, and Pages — all Apple apps, which suggests it has generated at least an extra $3 million in revenue. (Pocket change for Apple, but every penny helps.)

This also suggests, as expected, the Mac App Store is still a small opportunity for developers.

If it generated $1 million in sales, it suggests it sold 33,333 copies of the app. (Unless there was a discount somewhere along the lines that we’re not aware of.) Pixelmator is number 14 in the paid app rankings.

Regardless, developers are still excited about the Mac App Store. For more information on what developers are thinking about, check out our post on what’s next for mobile developers according to IDC.
