Posterino v4 now available

From Apple Silicon support to document handling. From image browsing to template picking. Posterino improved in many areas. The user interface received a fresh new look and the inspector has been integrated with the effects picker, also …

  • A bunch of new templates
  • A fast new built-in image browser
  • Improved document handling
  • Document previews in Finder
  • A new document file format
  • A unified inspector
  • Streamlined template creation
  • Better organized template browser
  • A fresh new look
  • A nice new application icon
  • Apple Silicon support
  • Full support for macOS Monterey and Ventura
  • Well, and there is always more …

But the star of v4.0 is surely the new Square-Grid layout. It bridges the gap between a completely automatic and a manual layout method. And I think it does this in a fun and enjoyable way. See for yourself:

Find out all about it on the Posterino v4 product page.

Posterino and Catalina

As usual, here comes my yearly notice regarding the state of Posterino and the upcoming new macOS. This year we can welcome macOS 10.15 “Catalina”.

I already mentioned this on Twitter but I think it doesn’t hurt to repeat a word of warning here: If you don’t have to, stay away from the Catalina (and iOS) betas for now! Currently the iCloud support is unstable and you may loose your data.

Regarding Posterino though, things look pretty good. In case you already run Catalina, update to the latest Posterino 3.5.1 and you are golden.

From your feedback I know that you love my short lists of personal favorite background information regarding the new macOS. So here it is:

Posterino spring-cleaning

In gardening you have to compose remains of dead plants, cut back branches and plant new seeds every spring to get your garden ready for a new cycle. The very same things apply to “gardening” an app if you like it to grow and blossom in the future.

Over the past weeks I took the time to remove old and obsolete code, handled OS deprecation warnings, updated various frameworks and did some overall code improvements. To make sure I did not cut off any essential “branch”, I’d like to sent the new spring-cleaned Posterino through a short beta phase.

Posterino App Icon

Long story short, I’d like to invite you to give the new beta a spin. All details on the Posterino beta page.

If you are wondering if you can run the beta and your current version of Posterino side by side: Yes, you can. See the Beta Installation Guide on the beta page for details.

Posterino and macOS Sierra

Today I’d like to deliver a quick update on the state of Posterino regarding the upcoming macOS 10.12 Sierra.

Since the first beta of macOS 10.12 Sierra became available, we did run detailed tests and I’m happy to report, that things are looking good. Posterino 3.2.12 is ready for the new OS!

Sure thing, the latest update will also run great on macOS 10.11 El Capitan. As usual this release is a free update to all customers of version 3.

Posterino 3.2 with new Mosaic-Crop feature

Wouldn’t it be nice if Posterino could automatically create a mosaic like the one in the middle of this image:

 

 

At least this has been the question of Posterino user Danny. By the way, check out his awesome work at http://smartdoll.jp. His feature request made me think. And well, as of Posterino 3.2 it can!

To create a mosaic from an image, just select a set of image frames:

apply_mosaic_crop_step_1

And Drag & Drop one image from the image browser to one of the selected image frames:

apply_mosaic_crop_step_2

Basically that’s it.

In case of ongoing work on a mosaic where you e.g. manually improve the layout, there is a “Apply Mosaic-Crop” context menu command to bring your mosaic crop back in shape when you select all image frames in question:

update_mosaic_crop_step_2

 

Posterino 3.2 is a free update for all customers of version 3. Enjoy!

Posterino 3.1.3

We just released Posterino 3.1.3 featuring the following improvements and bug fixes:

  • Maintenance update of the image browser.
  • Fixed a crash that could bite you when removing a grid layout parameter.
  • Handled a typo in the Dutch language support.

This build is a free update recommended for all users!

Depending on where you did make your purchase, open Mac App Store to update or run the built-in updater.

Enjoy!

Posterino supports Apple’s upcoming Photos app

After the dust of Apple’s last keynote has settled and we’re now all exited about the new Apple Watch and Mac Book, let’s not forget about the upcoming Yosemite release featuring Photos. Apple’s new photo editing app replacing iPhoto and Aperture.

Apple's new Photos app

Since some of you already did ask me about Posterino’s support for Photos, here comes the good news: We just made available a Posterino beta featuring exactly that.

On the beta page you’ll find all details on downloading, installing and running the beta. You can always turn back to the latest stable release. In short: it’s painless as usual. And since it features some nice improvements, you also benefit if you’re not yet running Photos.

Also, I stumbled over some web pages featuring juicy details on the upcoming Photos app which you might find useful too:

– What you need to know about Photos for OS X (recommended reading)
– Apple’s Photos preview page
– Apple’s OS X beta program

So much for now. I’ll keep you posted.
