Use Acorn for Free!
You can use Acorn 2 without paying a single cent. How awesome is that?

Here's how it works: when you first download Acorn, it runs in "trial mode" for a couple of weeks. If you decide not to purchase it after 14 days, the trial will end and Acorn will disable some advanced features, but will continue working for your image editing needs. You can still open images and crop, filter, rotate, add layers, add text, touchup and just have fun with your images. All without paying a single cent, and completely guilt free.

How will you know if you are in free or trial mode? This is what you'll see when Acorn runs in trial mode:

And here is what Acorn looks like when it's in free mode:

What features are disabled after the trial period is over?:

  • Web Export
  • Brush Designer and Brush tool (the Draw/Pencil tool is still enabled)
  • Layered Screen Shots
  • RAW Image Import
  • Copy Merged
  • Clone Tool
  • New Layer Groups
  • Free and Perspective Transform tools
  • Custom PlugIns
  • Levels
  • AppleScript support
  • B├ęzier Curve tool
  • Shortcuts for adjusting layer opacity
  • Start Window always comes up at launch
Why Flying Meat is doing this:

We think everyone deserves a good image editor, even if they don't want to pay for one. Acorn works great with other applications such as VoodooPad, iPhoto, and many more. Download Acorn, set it up as your preferred image editor, and away you go!

Ok, you've somehow talked me into buying Acorn. How do I give you my money?
