Acorn v1.0

In case you haven’t heard, Flying Meat has released a brand new image editing application called Acorn. I got a sneak peek of Acorn at the recent C4 conference and it looks very slick. From the Acorn product page, Gus Mueller, Flying Meat’s perpetual employee of the month, explains:

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. Don’t let Acorn’s size fool you; it’s a powerful little guy. Fancy math to keep your pencil strokes from having sharp edges, squeezing all the performance out of your computer’s GPU as possible, and simple innovations to make your life easier.

I was going to mention this when in my last post, but thought better of associating a new software release with things bursting into flame. Though Acorn is unlikely to start fires, it is a lightweight, but powerful, image editor for the Mac that’s easy on the wallet. If you’ve been looking for something that fits that description, go check it out.
