Acorn is a new image editor built with one goal in mind – simplicity. Fast, easy, and fluid, Acorn provides the options you’ll need without any overhead. Acorn feels right, and won’t drain your bank account.
- Take screenshots using Acorn and edit them right away.
- Chain together image filters to create stunning effects.
- Layer based image editing, an industry standard.
- Make new images and layers using your built-in iSight.
- Easy image and canvas resizing, just by changing the size of your window.
- Take advantage of every pixel of your monitor with full screen image editing.
- Tablet sensitive for pressure strokes and using the tablet’s eraser.
- Vector shape and text layers.
- Freeform, elliptical, rectangular, and magic wand selections.
- Create and apply custom text styles.
- Control opacity and blending modes for each layer.
- Write plugins using the Python scripting language, as well as in Objective-C.
- GPU powered. The same graphics card that makes your gaming experience smooth, helps Acorn fly through the toughest of graphics operations.
- New Automator Actions: Scale and Export to Folder. This makes it super easy to batch process a ton of images, and have them exported to your favorite format.
- Fixed a bug where changing the color of a selected range of text would sometimes reset it to whatever the color of the first character of the text box was.
- Scale and Rotate: Fixed a bug where entering a value such as .85 into the rotation field would round it up to 1.
- Fixed a bug where typing values into the Levels fields wouldn't properly update the filter settings.
- Fixed a problem when pasting bitmaps into an image would sometimes make an empty layer.
- Fixed a bug where the canvas wouldn't scroll when you were zommed in and making a selection.
- Workarounds for various OS X 10.11 El Capitan RAW import bugs (other bugs are fixed in the next OS update from Apple).
- Fixed a regression where the "Add a Crop" button in the Crop palette wasn't adding a crop. You'd think it would know what to do, right? It had just one job. But no. No crops for you. Till now of course.
- Fixed a regression where Acorn wouldn't open up some Adobe Illustrator files.
- Fixed a couple of problems where the attributes such as blend mode or opacity for a layer wasn't displayed properly when undoing a layer merge.
- App Store versions of Acorn should have an easier time when using the "Open Images" Automator action.
