Say hello to Acorn, the flagship and award winning image editor from Flying Meat. Everyone needs to edit photos at some point, but not everyone has the time to learn complicated super pricey photo editing software. This is why we created Acorn. Add text and shapes to your digital pictures. Combine images together to create a photo collage. Work with layers to touch up your favorite photos or make something entirely new from scratch. Do all this and more with Acorn! # A Short List of What's New in Acorn 7 * Universal Binary that runs natively on your Intel and Apple Silicon based Macs. * Choice of having a unified window with all the inspectors combined into a single window, or floating palettes like traditional image editors. * Über Export. A new export workflow gives you options for specifying a color profile (like CMYK or Gray), more formats to save as (now including Animated GIFs and WebP!), precise file size of your export, and a live preview even for PDFs. * New Zoom and Navigation Inspector gives an overview of your whole image with the ability to drag a viewport around to change the view in your canvas. * Perspective Fix & Crop tool will help you fix images where there are problematic perspective distortions. # What can Acorn do?
