How do I (re-)install Posterino using Mac App Store?

In January 2011 the Mac App Store opened as an online store and, since late February, Posterino has been available for purchase on the Mac App Store. Because the opening of the Mac App Store has changed the software distribution model we’ve all known for quite some time, we’ve had to learn some new tricks to operate this new beast and cope with some of its pitfalls.

Today I’d like to show you how easy it is to install or re-install software on your Mac using the Mac App Store.

Say, …
… you removed your copy of Posterino from your Mac
… you have a new Mac and want to install the software already purchased on Mac App Store
… you replaced your copy of Posterino in the Applications folder with a (beta) download from our site
… you want to install Posterino on a different Mac

The following steps are true for every application you purchased on the Mac App Store. Not just Posterino.

  1. Prerequisites: If you have a beta or demo version of Posterino in your Applications folder which you would like to replace with the copy you purchased through the Mac App Store, go to your Applications folder and drag Posterino to the trash. Also make sure there is no other copy of Posterino flying around on your system. Use Spotlight to search for “Posterino”.

  2. Open the Mac App Store.

  3. Go the “Purchases” tab by clicking the “Purchases” toolbar button or choose “Purchases” from the “Store” menu.

  4. If necessary, sign in using your App Store / iTunes credentials.

    The Mac App Store application will show a list of applications you already purchased.

  5. Click the “Install” button for any application you would like to install.

    (If the button reads “Installed”, you did not remove all copies of Posterino from your system. Go back to step 0.)

That’s it. You are done.

Once you realize that you can easily remove applications from your Applications folder without the fear of losing something, it becomes apparent that the Mac App Store will make your Mac maintenance much much simpler.

Great new templates: We’ve improved the versatility of our existing templates and added new gorgeous ones featuring various themes.

Posterino 2.0 Sneak Preview

Truth is, it’s been pretty quiet around Posterino. Not because we’ve been out enjoying the sunshine. Rather, everyone here has been working hard producing Posterino 2.0, which is chock full of enhanced features so you can more easily customize your document and get your photos out into the light of day.

The new Posterino document window in layout mode.

The new features of Posterino 2.0 you’ll be the first to try

Here’s how Posterino 2.0 stacks up against version 1.x!

  • Easily customize the layout of your images: grid, irregular, random
  • Easily change the number of images in a document (in the 1.x version, changing the number of images in a document was possible, but not as obvious and easy as it is now)
  • Alter the frame you use for your images
  • Tailor the image filter (black & white, sepia, sharpening etc.) to your needs
  • Enjoy new themed templates: For example, a “western” theme automatically transforms all images into sepia. A “Black & White” theme makes all images B&W.
  • Integrate Posterino 2.0 with the latest versions of iPhoto, Aperture and Lightroom
  • Export to disk, as an e-mail, to iPhoto, to Flickr and as your desktop background
  • Gain more fine grained control of your document with a new inspector
  • View your document in full-screen mode

Take a look at some screenshots of Posterino 2.0 for yourself here.

How to be a Posterino 2.0 beta tester

We have a limited number of spots available to be given out on a first come, first serve basis. Once we open a semi-public beta test phase for our new baby, you’ll be able to sign-up for a test-drive. We’ll give the start sign on Twitter. You can also subscribe to a notification e-mail or listen to our blog.

There are two caveats though:

  1. We have room for only a limited number of beta testers. We’ll start with a few and increase as we make progress.
  2. Posterino 2.0 is for Mac OS X 10.6 “Snow Leopard” only. You must have Snow Leopard to participate.

Thanks so much for taking the time to learn about Posterino 2.0. We’ll be giving out the signal for sign-up on Twitter soon.
