20 March 2021

Flying Meat has updated Acorn, Gus Mueller's image editing software for macOS to version 7. The new version, which adopts many of Big Sur's user interface conventions, is a universal binary with native code for M1 chips.


Highlights of the new version include:

  • Universal binary for M1 Macs
  • Unified Windows with a matching toolbar
  • Big Sur user interface conventions
  • New export workflow to specify color profile, file format, file size and live preview
  • Animated GIF export
  • Perspective Fix & Crop tool
  • Accurate Color Picker for either RGB or HSV without switching modes
  • Command Bar to search menu commands and other hidden commands
  • Save presets for Raw images

There's more to version 7, all of it revealed in the release notes. The new version requires macOS 10.14 Mojave or higher.


The $39.99 image editor on sale for $19.99 and is also available as a 14-day free trial and may be purchased directly from Flying Meat. The company also offers Retrobatch, an intriguingly powerful batch image processor.
