Acorn 1.0 released
Flying Meat today released Acorn 1.0, a new layer-based bitmap image editor built for simplicity. A fluid interface is designed to make iLife users feel comfortable when performing simple editing. The software features flood fill, gradients, vector shapes, drawing as well as erasing tools, and more. Acorn 1.0 also includes chaining filters alongside easy image and canvas resizing. "With plenty of power but zero bloat, Acorn will suit many needs. From quickly adding text to an image to creating a new graphic with pixel-precise control to just sketching out ideas, Acorn is great for all kinds of image editing." Acorn 1.0 is priced at $40, although the cost of the software will increase to $50 with the next iteration, according to the company. Acorn requires Mac OS X 10.4.9 or later.
