The things

August 3rd 2012 :: No comments :: Patterno, PhotoStyler, Smoke

Hi everyone,
It’s been a while since I posted anything in the blog, well, it’s due to my lazy nature :) We had all the news in the Twitter and the Facebook, but I guess it’s time to fill up the blog a bit. OK, what do I want to say? First of all, if you have missed our new co-project called “CadySquare” – you should definitely take a look! It represents various lightweight applications, a step over from the Neatberry apps complexity (is a sacrifice of some flexibility and power, of course), with a slick design and, at my taste, great look & feel. Applications themselves are mostly out of competition with Neatberry, so they might be a valuable addition to your photo library package.

Now about the Neatberry: PhotoStyler, Patterno and Fumy are my main goals for the rest of the 2012. It doesn’t mean that other application will be forgotten, but I simply can’t push them all forward, so the rest app in current plans are scheduled for the small updates only. Those three mentioned above, on the contrary, should get some serious features and UI upgrades which, I hope, will lift them higher.

Stay tuned!

Fumy 2.2.1 on the AppStore

May 4th 2012 :: No comments :: Smoke

Hello everyone,
Fumy 2.2.1 bugfix is available on the AppStore now, it fixes the issue with non-RGB colorspaces in input images (version 2.2 used to crash on such images). Regular version with the same fix has been already available for a while, so, if you face this problem, just click on the “Update” button.

Patterno 2.4

April 26th 2012 :: 1 comment :: Patterno, Smoke

Good news everyone!
Patterno got it’s small update. I have reviewed the visual representation of the app (the UI) to be more familiar to the Mac OS Lion interface guidelines. Also, a number of minor bugs were fixed. I can’ t say this version if a major improvement, but it fixes few annoying glitches and makes the work more comfortable.

Fumy 2.2.1 hotfix has been released as well. Actually, there was nothing wrong with Fumy 2.2 comparing to the previous one, but this release forced some number of reports regarding and old bug. Our poor Fumy had an issue with non-RGB color spaces which could cause a crash, this problem has been addressed and fixed in the 2.2.1.

Both applications are available on the website, AppStore version are not yet there (in review).

Fumy 2.2

April 25th 2012 :: No comments :: Smoke

Hello everyone!
It’s been a while since our last post – due to my work for Candy Square… However, I don’t forget to make some updates for the Neatberry apps and today I’m happy to show you the Fumy 2.2. This version brings minor bugfixes, improvements and one serious feature: the Lightning tool. It’s a bit basic tool yet, but it’s really promising and I hope you will enjoy it.

AppStore version is also available.

G.

The News

March 26th 2012 :: No comments :: LightFrame, PhotoStyler, Smoke

Hi all,
It’s been a month since the last post, so I decided to share the news. First of all, our new sharing framework is ready and it seems to be much more stable than the previous one. It’s not yet used by the PhotoStyler or LightFrame, but it’s been added into a new third-party project. Second, I have a hunk of time to make an update for… Fumy. Yes, this little app needs some minor improvements and I’m going to make a new version this week. A big, serious update is also required, but it will take a time and I plan to release closer to the end of the Spring.

In addition to the said above I’d like to introduce the future updates of the PhotoStyler and LightFrame. The apps will be moved to the Mac OS 10.7+, 10.6 version will be discontinued and archived.

Regards,
G.

Upcoming Fumy 2.1

January 24th 2012 :: No comments :: Smoke

Hello all!
New version of the Fumy app is almost ready. Here is a screenshot of the app window:
Fumy 2.1

Right on the screenshot you can see few improvements: the Navigator panel and the Templates panel. The first one is pretty simple and I’m sure everybody knows how to use it. As for the Templates – well, it’s the most requested feature, the tool that allows you to save and load Brush Settings. Now you can save and re-use in the future any smoke brush you find interesting!

In addition to this, I’ve made some minor improvements, bugfixes and since version 2.1 Fumy will support canvas DPI.

This update will be published soon, stay tuned!

Upcoming Fumy 2.0

December 7th 2011 :: No comments :: Smoke

Hello all,
Here is some info about the Fumy 2.0 we are testing now. The app was completely re-build and re-designed, we have (a bit) new renderer, better look and lots of new features! First of all, the app works faster and smoother now. Second, it consumes way less memory. Third, it brings full layers support.

Here is a screenshot of the working build we already have:
Fumy 2.0

Overall the app now stays much closer to a regular bitmap editor with a set of tools, although I don’t know other editors with a “smoke” tool ;)

Regards,
G.
