One of the best non-Photoshop image editors for the Mac reaches version 5. Easy on the eyes, with loads of handy tools and options to edit whatever image you need to edit.

How does Acorn compare to Affinity Photo?

@tomflemming I'd say: slighly less Photoshoppy, lots more Mac-like, as in look & feel - not necessarily in OS X capabilities.

Looks promising and downloaded the free trial, but was disappointed to see that .psd open as one layer rather than with the individual layers intact. I've been using Pixelmator for years, but tend to save any projects that might need other hands working on them in .psd for cross-platform convenience. Any plans to support layers?

@thatgirlcrystal Don't know about the layer-support, but I'll ask the dev.

Looks promising but being on one platform isn't particularly accessible or competitive.

@itsnblackburn It's not meant to be competitive. It's meant to be a high quality image editing app for the Mac without the power-features that would make it a Photoshop killer.
