Acorn 4 on Sale for $14.99

If you are looking for a good, inexpensive image editor, Acorn 4 for Mac is on sale for a limited time for $14.99. I bought it through the App Store and was able to install it on both my computers (bonus!). If you prefer, you can buy it directly from the Flying Meat website.

Acorn is a good-quality, Photoshop-like program, without the Photoshop price. I use it all the time to create graphics for FileMaker elements. I think I first heard about it at DevCon a couple of years ago from Matt Petrowsky of FileMaker Magazine.  The regular price is $49.99, which even then is still pretty reasonable.

I don’t know how long it will be on sale, so check it out!

FileMaker 13 Tech & Design Workshop April 28th

Yann Liqueur-Salzédo of Infografix and Fabrice Nordmann of 1-more-thing will be running a full-day workshop at the Apple Canada offices on April 28th.

I attended Yann’s design workshop last year, and it was full of very useful design philosophy, cool examples of his own work, and interface techniques. This time, Fabrice Nordmann will be joining as co-presenter. It promises to be a very interesting and informative session! Not to be missed if you’re interested in learning the inside info on FileMaker 13.
