Have you ever needed to do some simple photo editing or creation, but didn’t want the hassle of opening up Photoshop, or are too afraid to learn it? Then Acorn is for you! It’s a lightweight image editor that allows you to do many of the functions of more advanced programs (such as Photoshop), but doesn’t have quite the same learning curve or price.
Developed by Flying Meat, Acorn is an image editor that allows you do paint, draw and crop photos. It is also jam-packed with other features and a range of useful filters.
We reviewed an earlier version of Acorn last year, but will be covering new features and exploring the basics in greater depth today.
For almost two decades now, Adobe’s Photoshop has ruled as the ultimate image editing tool on the Mac and PC. It offers a comprehensive toolset that is difficult to challenge, and doing so would be a major undertaking for any company. However, over the years, Photoshop has become increasingly bloated with unnecessary features. So why pay $600 for something, when you can find cheaper (and in some cases, better) alternatives?
Acorn from Flying Meat Software is one such Photoshop alternative that encompasses simplicity and power in a very intuitive user interface. It can handle most of your image editing work, right from the simple tasks to those involving some levels of complexity.
