What is the story on this? I see it's version 8. But only 137 downloads? No reviews or comments. Sketchy description. Can MacUpdate staff confirm this is legit?
I see that the Mac App Store doesn't show the sale price, so I'll buy thru MacUpdate. Purists may object (or not) but I find convenience and time savings in going through the App Store. Continuing that theme, my vote for features I would value is code completion, help with getting code syntax right (tho I've just registered for a tech college course on CSS), and code checking. I use Dreamweaver for heavy lifting. But there are small sites and stand-alone code sections (to drop into WordPress, for example) for which I would like to use a more nimble but still "hand-holding" app. Look forward to seeing your efforts.
Be nice if someone revealed how it isolates the item to be colored from the background. If it's simply a magic wand type tool then it may have no advantage over Photoshop and others. If it's cleverer than that, be good to know.
Have used this for years. It's comfortable and considerate as a friend is. Not the kind of app that flashes & dazzles. The kind that simply makes it easy and intuitive to accomplish your FTP.
I'd spent time trying to find a compact, powerful, trim text editor to leave open all the time for various uses. Thought I'd improve on TextEdit. The conclusion from all the searching (and greater familiarity with TextEdit) is that TextEdit may be the best choice. It's unassuming but IMO smart. Today, Text Edit Plus sounded promising. Downloaded & tried it with an arbitrary test. I copied a webpage column (with images, text, etc.) and pasted into both TE and TEP. TE showed all the items. TEP just showed the text. Wouldn't begin to judge TEP on this one feature. But since I use that feature, maybe I should stay with TE. Mentioning it here because there's likely more going on than I realize.
At $10, this app is said to be 75% off. The non-pro version is similarly on sale at five bucks.
Question: This apparently outputs to Flash and HTML5. Does that pretty much cover a wide variety of desktop and mobile viewers? Or are there older-but-still-used browsers that this won't serve?
So if I bought a Pixelmator 1 license earlier this year at Amazon, and would like v2, I need to buy v2 at the Mac App Store? There's no separate upgrade path? Right?
I have no problem with those that prefer this app. But for me TextEdit is always open and easy to use. Gradually, I've come to be quite impressed with what TextEdit can do, without complexity. And saving the fles to the right place is easy with Default Folder. YMMV...
I liked that it would arbitrarily assign pix to the various frames. More than once if wanted. I liked that I could drag any pic to any frame to revise. Then I really liked when I found I could delete a problem frame and *easily* resize the frames around it to preserve design integrity. The only thing I haven't discovered yet (could be missing; could be me) is the capability of giving different croppings to the pix. Move l-r/up-down and zoom in/out. So I go back to the pic file and edit there. If I recall, Posterino either auto reflects my changes or I drag the photo in again. Either way, it's not hard. I'm *fond* of this app. And my church likes the collage I made.
A screenshot of the collage (done in Posterino, Photoshop and InDesign) is at: http://www.lasersaveinc.com/UU/CoverCollage.png Might also mention: I liked that Posterino uses PSD files and that large files didn't slow it down.
