Acorn updated with new filters, WebP support, more
Flying Meat software has bumped its image-editor Acorn to version 2.6. Beyond the usual hodgepodge of bug fixes and tune-ups, the newest version also adds a variety of new features.
Acorn now lets you use Quartz Composer compositions as filters, which opens up a slew of new ways to manipulate your images, such as Blue Print, Copy Machine, and Kaleidoscope. The Fill command also now provides more options for your fill, letting you adjust the opacity, blend mode, and more.
Acorn 2.6 requires Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) or later and costs $50, though the 2.6 update is free for all owners of 2.0 or later. A free trial is available, too.
