User Friendly Interface

It is a known fact that many image editors are hard to use. Tools and other editing functions that you need to use are often scattered all over the place, which makes them difficult to find. That is not the case with Acorn Image Editor. The developers of Acorn Image Editor designed the program to be as uncluttered as possible. All of the image editing tools that are included with Acorn Image Editor are available in a single palette. You can move the palette around when working on different size images and you can even hide the palette when needed. Best of all, thanks to the user friendly interface of Acorn Image Editor, you should never have to read a user guide or tutorial.


Unfortunately, not all image editing programs come with layers. Layers are the key to photo composition and they play a huge hole in image editing. Fortunately, Acorn Image Editor does support layers. By supporting layers, Acorn Image Editor allows you to combine different images or effects together to create the perfect image. You can set the blending for each layer that you create. Available blendings include normal and transparent. You can even set the opacity of each layer. By being able to set the opacity, you have full control over how much impact a single layer will have on the entire image that you are creating. Another great feature of layers is the fact that you can add text and other objects to an image without destroying the original image because the text and other objects will be added to a layer on top of the original image.


Mac operating systems are known for coming with unicode support. Unicode support allows for rich text formatting on computers that run a Mac operating system. The text tools that are included with Acorn Image Editor build on top of the unicode support that is provided by the Mac operating system. Thanks to the text tools in Acorn Image Editor and the unicode support on your computer, you will have full control over your text. In addition to coming with spell check, Acorn Image Editor can handle everything from bolding text to ligature to kern. Acorn Image Editor even comes with design tools that allow you to shape text. Available text shaping design tools in Acorn Image Editor include size, spacing, softness, squish, rotate and flow.
