Description

### The Flying Meat Inflation Act of 2023 Super Sale ###

Inflation blows. So we're reducing the price of Acorn by 25%. But don't delay as this sale won't last forever.

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.

Editors’ Choice

The image editor for the rest of us, Acorn is one of the fastest and easiest ways to crop, resize, and apply effects and filters to photos. But it also has enough pro features to handle almost any task—along with comprehensive online tutorials to show you how.

Very pleased

After dumping Photoshop, I tried Pixelmator, Affinity Photo, and Acorn. Of those three, Acorn is my favorite by far. Sure, it's not nearly as full-featured as PS but it's also not astronomically priced. App is very affordable considering what you get. Does almost everything I need it to do. Developers are fantastic. Very responsive. Will continue to be my go-to app for editing images.

Does everything I need

I thought I needed the big boy photo manipulation app, but it turns out Acorn has everything I need (and still plenty more). Very happy to be able to support this developer and not have anxiety about where my next version of PS is coming from.
