Crop, Facebook, selection and friends

Thursday, August 12th, 2010

Relevant or not? Decide for yourself:

  • The Crop tool is now enhanced. It has a couple of presets which allow you to crop parts of a certain aspect ratio. Also, Phixr can resize (scale) the photo immediately after cropping, without using the Resize tool. This way you can create avatars or icons in a single step.
  • The aspect ratio of the selection can be locked. This is especially useful in connection with the enhanced Crop tool. You can move and resize the selection without losing its current aspect ratio.
  • Phixr can now resize photos on-the-fly when e-mailing them. Do not be afraid: The original remains untouched. Only the photo actually sent is resized.
  • Phixr can now upload photos to Snapfish, Tumblr, Cosco (welcome back), PictureTrail and a few more. Buzznet removed their upload facility, so we ditched them. Fotolog changed their way to upload photos, and we adapted to this now.
  • Uploading to Facebook and flickr is now up to 30% faster. SmugMug access is now up to 50% faster.
  • Phixr is now all UTF-8. All file names, album names etc. work correctly if they contain UTF-8 characters. Also, Phixr handles file names correctly when uploading (some of the third party services do not like non-ASCII characters in their album or file names).

Back to work…

Friday, finally

Hm, what’s up this time. Oh yes, the crop tool now allow saving the cropped part as a separate photo. Handy if you, for instance, want to cover a part of a scanned piece of paper.. clip out a completely white part, and “paste” it over the part to be covered. How to “paste”? That’s where the updated mix tool comes into play: You can now use the marked area for specifying the exact position of the other photo to be mixed into the first one. If you set the mixing opacity so that the mixed-in photo completely covers the current photo, you’re finished!
