What’s Coming Up Next? – Tom Bluewater Introducing Img4Web 3 for Mac OS X

Mac OS X software Img4Web 3

TOKYO (MacHouse) – When you try to show pictures with an HTML table on a remote server, a few things can go easily wrong. You probably know relative paths to image files on your remote server, but you can’t really test your html code on your local computer. And you create thumbnails out of actual pictures, and you create them again after making some changes, and again and again. That’s so cumbersome. That’s why I’ve developed Img4Web, which lets you generate HTML code with thumbnails. But there are limitations. For example, it won’t let you generate multiple rows of tables when you have a lot of pictures to show with an HTML table. So what can I do about that? Well, I’ve worked my butt off for the last several days in order to upgrade this more-than-two-year-old application. As a result, I submitted Img4Web 3 to Mac App Store a few hours ago.

What’s new?

  1. Create presets for HTML settings.
  2. Test your HTML code locally or generate HTML code for hosting pictures with thumbnails on a remote server.
  3. Set a border color.
  4. Set the number of columns with pictures.
  5. Create not just one row of pictures but multiple rows pictures by letting the application figure out the number of rows, depending on the total number of pictures you have.
  6. Save all settings by choosing Save Settings under Img4Web 3. Choose Load Settings at any time to load saved settings. Optionally, let the application automatically load saved settings whenever it starts up.
  7. Drag and drop source pictures directly onto the file list.
  8. The application comes with a built-in user guide with graphics.

Img4Web 3 lets you create thumbnails out of actual-size pictures at the same time when it generates HTML code to show them in a multi-row table.   Continue reading

What’s Coming Up Next? – Tom Bluewater Introducing Deskcap 2 for Mac OS X

Mac OS X software Deskcap 2

TOKYO (MacHouse) – It was deskShots 2 a week ago. There was justIcons 2 two weeks ago. Yeah, right… I’ve been upgrading existing software titles for the past three weeks or so. Here comes another one. I submitted a new software release to Mac App Store some 12 hours ago. This new release is called Deskcap 2.

The two-year-old Deskcap was indispensable for me because it let me create a visual work area smaller than the entire desktop area of 2,560 px X 1,440 px. It’s old and now dead.   Continue reading

Mac OS X software deskShots 2

TOKYO (MacHouse) – Life can get unexpectedly brutal, sometimes. In the last seven days I’ve struggled to find a solution to a software development issue, due to which Mac App Store rejected three new software submissions and three software updates. They say all the binaries that I submitted to them contained an entitlement (com.apple.developer.maps) that they didn’t need. Well, I didn’t put it. It seems that I’ve finally located the root of the problem. Anyway, I submitted a new software title to Mac App Store yesterday. I managed to submit a good copy to them just half an hour ago after fixing the entitlement issue. This new software title is called deskShots 2.

deskShots 2 is the first major upgrade to an existing desktop application that lets you take desktop screenshots effectively. Taking a desktop screenshot can’t be any easier with deskShots 2. Take a screenshot of the full or a partial desktop area with a click of a button without letting the application prompt you to name each file. Select a shape like a circle, a triangle, a square, a heart, a diamond that surrounds the mouse pointer.   Continue reading
