Posterino 4.0.1 - 4.0.22

Public Beta phase from July to November 2022

During the public beta phase Posterino underwent thorough testing by long time users and by people seeing Posterino for the first time. This test force discovered areas where the user interface needed improvements or some polish. Together we eradicated a whole bunch of nasty bugs in various areas of the app. My thanks goes out to the many lovely individuals who dedicated time to this endeavor and who provided helpful feedback and insights! I really enjoyed talking to so many of you! So please, keep your suggestions flowing! :)

Posterino 4.0

From Apple Silicon support to document handling. From the image browser to the template picker. Posterino improved in many areas. The user interface received a fresh new look and the inspector has been integrated with the effects picker. But the star of this major new version 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.

  • The new Square-Grid layout
  • A whole bunch of new templates
  • 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
  • Full support for macOS Monterey and Ventura
  • Apple Silicon support
  • Well, and there is always more ...

Square-Grid Layouts

Some suggestions on using the new Square-Grid layout:

  • Have a look at the How to apply the Square-Grid layout video for a quick overview
  • Drop your images on the document background: Distribute the images on free placement squares available on your document
  • The Square-Grid layout features a set of drop options depending on the mouse position on top or between the placement squares. Just move your drag objects around a bit to discover the different options.
  • On the toolbar of the window there are two new action: Scale Down and Scale Up. Use these to scale your Square-Grid document to hold more or less images.

New Image Browser

  • The new image browser is much faster now
  • The browser features image categories like the Photos app
  • Live updates: Change something in Photos and the Posterino image browser will follow
