Acorn 3.3 Released With Retina Canvas


Acorn is one of our very favorite apps here at Macgasm. It is an affordable and lightweight image editor with a lot of style. Fresh out of the oven, Acorn has a new update that has some exciting features.

[quote]Retina Canvas- if you have a Retina MacBook Pro, Acorn will provide a 1 to 1 mapping between screen and image pixels. So your images will look super awesome- and currently Acorn is the only image editor available that does this! Besides this new awesomeness, all the icons and other UI elements have been updated as well.[/quote]

That’s not all, though! You can now redo a selection if you need it again. This makes things a lot easier if you’re going back and forth trying to spit out different variations of a file. Your exact selection can easily be called back now. Smart layer export is available in this release as well. It’s never been easier to produce and export Retina-caliber graphics.

Also of note is that this is the first release of Acorn with sandboxing enabled in the App Store version. Most users won’t see a difference, but users that have certain types of scripts running might need to rejigger their workflow to comply to the new lockdown imposed by Apple for security’s sake.

This is a free update to owners of Acorn 3.x, and new users can pick it up for only $49.99 USD.
