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.
- Faster panning, brushing, fills, and just a general speed improvement overall. Acorn should feel more fluid, and we've even seen framerates over 160 FPS when brushing on a 2015 iMac 5k.
- Added some new preferences to choose where the rendering happens, located under the Fussy Stuff tab. You can choose Metal, OpenGL, or Software. You can also choose if the data for your image is stored on the GPU or on the CPU (we realize this is a little ridiculous, and we'll remove these options in a future release, but they are great for playing around with right now).
