    "Couldn't Do Simple Task"

    October 19, 2011  |   By wrbtu

    Version: Acorn 3.1.1

    Pros

    Attractive interface

    Cons

    Couldn't figure out how to do a simple task
    Not intuitive

    Summary

    I wanted to test the trial version by drawing a simple rectangular box of set dimensions, & add centered text inside the box. I expected to be able to accomplish this simple task without the use of a manual, but I couldn't. For a basic program, the interface should be more intuitive. I wanted to find a more streamlined interface, but I'll go back to using PhotoShop Elements, GraphicConverter, & even VectorDesigner (whose Customer Service has gone from excellent to non-exitent in a few short months).

    "Bit early to tell - as a Photo shop elements user"

    May 14, 2011  |   By Rob Morley-Smith

    Version: Acorn 3.0.1

    Pros

    uses commonly accepted tools

    Cons

    Have not identified those as yet

    Summary

    I need to spend more time experimenting with the options - time is one thing I do not have a lot of at the present so may even flag it!

    "why $50 ?????"

    January 11, 2011  |   By zee10

    Version: Acorn 2.6.3

    Pros

    would be ok for $20, not $50.

    Cons

    it's ok for $20. I tried it, and after using for many years PSE, it doesn't come even close to the versatility, power and ease of use of it.
    So, for $50 a much much better option is Photoshop Elements:easy, friendly and much more powerful.

    "Decent image editing on the cheap"

    September 28, 2010  |   By jamesnotjim

    Version: Acorn 2.5.1

    Pros

    Acorn is an easy-to-use, affordable app suitable for general image editing and creation. It supports layers and is fine for creating web graphics and the like w/o shelling out hundreds of dollars.

    Cons

    I guess the only thing I don't like is that the latest version requires 10.6. Seriously, there's not much to dislike about it. It's $50 well spent.

    "Very Promising as is - but could be awesome if ..."

    May 17, 2010  |   By Widersinnes

    Version: Acorn 2.3.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    This is a very good basic editor. It is fast and easy to use. But what I noticed right off the bat was the sheer speed of the thumbnail generation in the Open folder function. If you could add some basic folder tree options so we can use this as both a photo organizer and editor it would easily replace graphic converter (which is very very unstable with large folders of images).

    "Worthless"

    January 18, 2010  |   By biffboffo

    Version: Acorn 2.2

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    This attempted rip-off of Photoshop is pretty much useless (I can only imagine a lawsuit is forthcoming once Adobe hears of this attempt). Of course, Adobe has little to fear from Acorn. The quality of the saved images from this app is very poor and the cumbersome nature of the interface prevents Acorn from accomplishing anything save creating frustration for the user. There are many other vector-based image editing programs that do a much better job. As should be the fate of every little acorn, bury this one and forget about it.

    "Bravo for now & three cheers for the future!"

    October 22, 2009  |   By jarlaxle.merc

    Version: Acorn 2.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Wow! I'm in love. I'm a professional illustrator who's wasted a lot of time time fighting with both the technology and the confounded support available for â??professionalâ?? tools such as Photoshop, Sketchbook Pro, and Painter, Sketch Pad, etc. All current drawing and painting tools for professional illustrators are afterthoughts on the Mac, i.e. lazy ports. This is an AWESOME, unsung tool for illustrators, especially because itâ??s the truest Mac OS X experience available. The brushes are great! The customization is wonderful, automation is on a professional level, and I foresee even greater things in the future for Acorn! P.S. Pen/Bezier drawing/selection tool please :)
