Creating Circular Text On Your Mac With Acorn

If you need to draw text along a circular path on your Mac, you'll find you need a third-party app to do it. One general image editing app that will do it is Acorn, available in the Mac App Store at a much lower cost than anything from Adobe. You can easily add text outside or inside of a circle, and make adjustments to the text afterward. You can then export the result to use in any app.

    Neat! I’ve had a look at your list of tutorials under subject, and I don’t see a heading for Acorn (though there’s one for Pixelmator). Any chance of your doing a number of tutorials for Acorn some time?

    Caroline: Yes. I think I’ll be adding that as a category soon.

    Thanks for the brief tutorial on creating a circle text in Acorn. Acorn is a great basic graphics editor.
    I downloaded it one day when I noticed you had it on your taskbar, and I thought well if Gary is using it. the app must be pretty good :-) :-) :-) I also downloaded Screenflow for the same reason.

    Wow! That opens a new line of thought for the occasional videos I make.

    In Australia’s App Store, Acorn retails for $46.99. An expensive circle. I’d consider Photoshop Elements, first.
