It’s small, with a lot of potential…

Acorn! Yesterday afternoon I led a session on Acorn for editing images and creating graphics. The latest version, version 3, is packed with a lot of power. For instance, check out this simple tutorial for adding a rainbow effect to a black and white image.

Yes–Acorn is installed on every Mac this year–and it’s similarly featured to Adobe Photoshop but is easier to use! The effect above is something you can do with Acorn – we “desaturated” the background to make the bus in the foreground pop with its own color. Check out my link above which will take you to Acorn’s own library of easy-to-follow tutorials and videos.
