Flying Meat has released
Acorn, a new image editor for Mac OS X. The software costs $39.95; you can download it as a demo.
Acorn is built for simplicity, according to the developer. It enables you to take screenshots, chain together image filters, perform layer-based editing, make new layers and images using your iSight camera, resize canvases and images, perform tasks using pressure-sensitive pen tablets, manipulate vector shapes and text layers, use freeform, elliptical, rectangular and magic wand settings and much more.
Acorn also sports a plug-in architecture that can be used by writing either in Objective-C or the Python scripting language. And Acorn leverages the GPUs in modern Macs to manage graphics operations, so the faster the graphics in your system, the faster the performance of Acorn.
The $39.95 registration fee is an introductory price, according to the developer.
Acorn requires Mac OS X v10.4.9 or later and is a Universal binary.
