Processing and editing images is a rather common practice, so finding the perfect tool for the job is on the mind of many users.

Acorn is yet another image editor that provides basic capabilities, is able to work with vector tools, includes custom brushes and various filter effects, and makes sure that its interface is as intuitive as possible.

Straightforward design

As many other image processors, Acorn has its tools organized in three main panels: the toolbox that contains most of the editing instruments, the canvas area where you can make the adjustments and preview the results, and the inspector panel where you can customize the behavior of the currently selected tool and view all the image layers.

Easily edit your images

The Acorn toolbox provides a selection of both basic and professional tools that can be used to alter your photos and even create new graphic projects. Acorn includes a wide collection of brushes designs, but also comes with a Brush Designer where you can create your own patterns.

Moreover, Acorn allows you to create all sorts or regular or irregular shapes by using the bezier pen or the line / rectangular / oval / star shape. Since the application is employing vector tools, the results will look perfect regardless of the resolution you are using.

Built-in image filters

For your convenience, Acorn also provides quick access to a fairly large collection of image effects: blur, color adjustment, color effect, distortion effect, gradient, halftone, sharpen, stylize, tile, and more. This way you can achieve amazing effects in virtually no time.

User friendly image editing software

Acorn manages to provide above average capabilities when it comes to processing image files while preserving a simple, streamlined, and fairly intuitive user interface.

Acorn can be used to draw up new graphic projects by using vector tools, to apply various image filters to your photos, or to perform more basic tasks, such as adding text captions or resizing photos. If you are looking for an easy to use image processor, Acorn certainly deserves your attention.

BetterTouchTool 1.15 - 1.17 Alpha Free BetterTouchTool 1.15 - 1.17 Alpha Free

The Apple Magic Mouse, the Magic Trackpad, and the Macbook Trackpad allow the user to use various gestures to control their computer. BetterTouchTool is a small but efficient OS X app designed to help you define shortcuts for your gestures.

Moreover, BetterTouchTool can be used to work with regular mice and keyboard shortcuts, and also provides a companion iOS app: you can employ the mobile device to control the computer.

Clean and organized user interface

After you set up all the shortcuts, BetterTouchTool works in the background, without requiring your attention. However, the app does come with a status bar menu that provides quick access to the app’s Settings panel and allows you to disable the BetterTouchTool functions for all apps, or only for the currently selected utility.

Define your own shortcuts in no time

The BetterTouchTool Settings panel comes with a simple and an advanced view mode, and allows you to adjust the gestures sensitivity level for each peripheral device. If you choose to enables the Window Snapping feature, each time you drag a window to the screen’s edge, it will be automatically resized.

In addition, via the Gestures panel, you get to define shortcuts by using Magic Mouse, trackpads, keyboards, or normal mice actions. Note that BetterTouchTool is also able to work with an Apple remote, with a Leap Motion device, or with other gadgets.

Noteworthy is that the new shortcuts can be global (available system wide), or can be specific to a certain application. The latter very useful because BetterTouchTool comes with a finite number of triggers, so you can use the same combinations for different results.

Powerful yet user friendly application designed to improve your workflow

BetterTouchTool proposes an intuitive manner in which you can define various shortcuts that can trigger certain action in a more intuitive and time efficient method. The new hotkeys or gesture combinations can be made available system wide, or you can limit them to a specific application.

All in all, if you are looking for a way to employ you time and energy in a more productive fashion, BetterTouchTool certainly deserves your attention.
