Acorn 7.4.3 – Bitmap image editor


Acorn is a new image editor built with one goal in mind – simplicity. Fast, easy, and fluid, Acorn provides the Acornoptions you’ll need without any overhead. Acorn feels right, and won’t drain your bank account.


  • Take screenshots using Acorn and edit them right away.
  • Chain together image filters to create stunning effects.
  • Layer based image editing, an industry standard.
  • Make new images and layers using your built-in iSight.
  • Easy image and canvas resizing, just by changing the size of your window.
  • Take advantage of every pixel of your monitor with full screen image editing.
  • Tablet sensitive for pressure strokes and using the tablet’s eraser.
  • Vector shape and text layers.
  • Freeform, elliptical, rectangular, and magic wand selections.
  • Gradients.
  • Create and apply custom text styles.
  • Control opacity and blending modes for each layer.
  • Write plugins using the Python scripting language, as well as in Objective-C.
  • GPU powered. The same graphics card that makes your gaming experience smooth, helps Acorn fly through the toughest of graphics operations.



Version 7.4.3:

Little New Features.

  • The selection palette now lists the number of pixels you have selected!
  • The trick for croping a layer without resizing a canvas will now work when you have multiple layers selected. (The trick is to hold down the option key when finishing up your crop. It’s neat, try it! You can quickly cut cruft out of your layer(s) without having to change the size of your image). Cropping a shape layer will also remove graphics outside the crop bounds now.
  • New Auto Level / Straighten action in the Command Bar, and when holding down the option key when choosing the Layer menu (as an alternate to “Auto Enhance”). This will tell Acorn to take a good guess at leveling out your picture.

Super Minor Stuff.

  • When importing SVG files, polygon tags are read into bezier shapes.
  • Layered screenshots now include the cursor.
  • When taking a layered screenshot with a specific application defined, the menu bar is now included.
  • The crash report checker would always check if a new version was available, even if you had the option to check for updates turned off. This oversight has been corrected and the programmer responsible given twenty lashings.

Bug Fixes.

  • Fixed some drawing issue which appeared on MacOS 14 (Sonoma).
  • Fixed a problem where the system color picker would try and match color profiles between two different images which didn’t match, and go a little nuts.
  • Fixed a problem where sometimes setting the box fill color of a text shape would also change the text fill color as well. Whoops, sorry about that. It’s fixed now though!
  • Fixed a bug where you’d get a warning when trying to save a file in .acorn format which was previously in .webp.

JavaScript Stuff.

  • Acorn now comes with a little console window you can open up via the Command Bar (it’s named “Console”). Any output from JavaScript plugins will go here (via `console.log()`).

Weird Hidden Experimental Stuff.

  • I’m playing around with the idea of automatically removing the file type and last saved location to flat files (such as PNG or JPEG) when adding layers to them. This is for cases where you open up a PNG, add text, and then want to save it as a .acorn file (mostly automatically) because you’d love to preserve the layer data and saving it right back to a PNG will ruin that idea. And Acorn throwing up a dialog box telling you this kind of gets in the way. So here’s a hidden pref (copy + paste into the Terminal app and press return) to enable it: defaults write com.flyingmeat.Acorn7 updateFlatToAcornFormatWhenAddingLayers 1 If you try it out, I’d love to hear how it’s going for you.



  • Intel, 64-bit processor
  • macOS 10.14 or later
