macOS New App Release – Screenshot Maker – Pro Creator 1.0


Product Announcements – Independent developer, Apso MB of Kaunas, Lithuania has released Screenshot Maker – Pro Creator 1.0, their unique new screenshot capturing utility for macOS. Using the app’s exclusive set of shape drawing tools, users can capture whatever is on their Mac’s display by drawing any size shape. Simply use the mouse pointer to place points of the shapes anywhere on the screen to outline a capture area. The app’s special drawing tools allow users to make curves, ovals, and much more to define capture areas.

In addition to freehand drawing tools, Screenshot Maker – Pro Creator also offers default shapes for grabbing screen captures without needing to hand-draw a shape. Available shapes include stars, clouds, squares, hearts, triangles, circles, word balloons, and more. Users can also draw and save a shape in the shapes menu for convenient future use, allowing them to grab screenshots of the same shape anytime.

“Until now, capturing screenshots on your Mac involved either capturing an entire screen and then editing the shot or capturing an entire app window,” says Apso MB General Manager, Vytautas Jankevicius. “Even third-party screen capture apps were quite limited in what they could capture. But, Screenshot Maker – Pro Creator allows capturing any part of your Mac’s screen in any shape or size, providing a flexible and convenient method of capturing screenshots!”

Features include:
* Draw any shape to capture a section of the Mac’s display.
* Special draw tool allows users to create curves and ovals or combine lines and curves.
* Default shapes capture screenshots with no drawing needed.
* Draw shapes and save them for later use.
* Create quick hand-drawn screenshot using the Quick Screenshot function.
* Save screenshots to any directory.

While Screenshot Maker – Pro Creator allows anyone to draw any shape on their Mac’s screen and take a precise screenshot, the app’s handy freehand-based Quick Screenshot function allows users to quickly hand-draw a screenshot area in just a few seconds. The lightning-fast tool allows users to create irregular and unique capture areas on the screen.

Screenshot Maker – Pro Creator creates a transparent background area around any shape captured. This allows the screenshots to be used in presentations, documents, websites, even eBooks. The captured images look great and don’t pose issues when overlapping in a project.

Capture screenshots in any shape, including:
* Geometric shapes: Stars, Circles, Triangles, and more.
* Hearts
* Folder shapes
* Candy Wrapper
* Clouds
* Word balloons
* More

“With Screenshot Maker – Pro Creator, Mac users are no longer restricted to the same boring screenshot shapes, but instead can create a screen capture in any shape they wish,” continues Vytautas. “In just a few seconds, users can create custom screenshot shapes, saving them for later use with a single click. I can’t wait to see the ways our customers use this exciting new capture tool!”

System Requirements:
* macOS 10.13 or later
* macOS Mojave and macOS Catalina compatible
* 64-bit processor
* 3.5 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Screenshot Maker – Pro Creator 1.0 is just $3.99 USD (or an equivalent amount in other currencies) and is available worldwide exclusively through the Mac App Store in the Utilities category.

macOS New App Release – Memoir 3

Product Announcements Boundary Labs of Houghton, Michigan has released Memoir 3 through both our website and through the Mac App Store. Memoir 3 is a total rewrite of the popular note-taking and journaling software for macOS. It features a powerful organizer, calendar, and search that work together to help you keep organized. And, with a clean, elegant interface, Memoir makes for a distraction-free organizational experience that helps you work faster with keyboard shortcuts abound.

Memoir is a clean, elegant interface to your notes. Store your notes the way you’d like. Similar to the Finder, the Organizer allows you to store notes in whatever structure works best for you. Memoir keeps track of how you organize each folder, so you can focus on taking notes.

The entire interface has been streamlined – most operations have keyboard shortcuts for quick access without leaving the keyboard.

Search is deeply integrated. Type in the search bar and the organizer collapses, showing just the information you’re searching for. Or, search from anywhere using Spotlight.

Memoir keeps your data safe. Lock away your private data with a password or Touch ID to keep your data safe from prying eyes. Memoir uses industry-standard strong encryption to make sure whatever data you want to be protected stays private.

Keep a focus on writing. A built-in calendar shows you visually when notes were created, helping you to track down information quicker. It also gives you a birds-eye view of your writing activity, aiding you in making note-taking a consistent activity.

Memoir 3 provides a modern macOS experience. It features support for Dark Mode, Full-Screen Mode, Touch ID, and the Touch Bar, Spotlight, and many other new macOS technologies. Memoir 3 is compatible with macOS 10.13 High Sierra and higher. Download it from the website or buy it from the Mac App Store

macOS New app Release – LinkOptimizer 5.2.25


Product Announcements Zevrix Solutions of Toronto (ON), Canada has released LinkOptimizer 5.2.25, a security update to its image processing automation solution for Adobe InDesign. LinkOptimizer is designed to automate complex image manipulation tasks, which allows users to reduce the size of InDesign links, save production costs, and easily repurpose InDesign documents for web and mobile devices.

With the new version, LinkOptimizer was updated to satisfy new security requirements on macOS 10.15 and has now received the seal of approval issued by the Apple notary service. According to Apple, notarization gives users more confidence that the Developer ID-signed software developers distribute has been checked by Apple for malicious components. These claims have not been independently verified yet. Beginning in the forthcoming macOS 10.15 Catalina, notarization is required by default for all Mac software.

“Thank you for this fantastic plug-in”, says Gopa Campbell of Gopa & Ted2, a design studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico. “What it just did for me in a book with 132 images is amazing. LinkOptimizer saved me what would have been three extremely tedious hours of Photoshop tweaking and InDesign reimporting.”

LinkOptimizer works automatically with Photoshop to eliminate the excess image data of InDesign links, convert image formats, and perform essential image adjustments. For example, with just a click of a button users can:

* Optimize multiple InDesign files and books
* Scale and crop images to match their dimensions in InDesign
* Change their resolution to 300 dpi
* Convert RGB images to specific CMYK profile
* Resave JPEGs as PSD
* Run a Photoshop action on each image

As a result, users can save gigabytes of disk space and countless hours of optimizing images manually, accelerate document output, reduce job turnaround and cut costs through faster processing.

Pricing and Availability:
LinkOptimizer can be purchased from Zevrix website for $259.95 USD (Lite version: $179.95) as well as from Adobe Exchange and authorized resellers. Trial is also available for download. The update is free for LinkOptimizer 5.x users and $130 to upgrade from previous versions. LinkOptimizer requires macOS 10.7-10.14 and Adobe InDesign / Photoshop CS5-CC 2019.

macOS New App Release – Pixelmator Pro 1.4


Product Announcements The Pixelmator Team of Vilnius, Lithuania has released Pixelmator Pro 1.4 Hummingbird, a major update to the award-winning Mac image editor designed to make powerful professional tools accessible to everyday users. The update introduces an incredible new Photos extension, bringing the entire Pixelmator Pro app to Photos, includes an all-new Zoom tool, an improved Crop tool, and much more.

“This is undoubtedly one of the craziest and best updates we’ve ever released,” said Saulius Dailide, one of the founders of the Pixelmator Team. “The Photos app is a fantastic photo management tool and a great photo editor. And now, with the amazing new Pixelmator Pro extension, it becomes an incredibly powerful layer-based image editor as well.”

The new extension for the Photos app includes every single tool and feature from Pixelmator Pro, integrating the entire app within Photos. This includes the machine learning-powered photo enhancement tools, nondestructive adjustments and effects, support for editing RAW photos, full support for layer-based editing, and more. So you can edit photos using a complete collection of advanced image editing tools without ever leaving the Photos app.

Changes made with the Pixelmator Pro extension can be saved directly to the Photos library, with layers and other nondestructive edits automatically preserved in an associated Pixelmator Pro document. Whenever an image previously edited with the Pixelmator Pro extension is reopened, layers, adjustments, and effects are restored automatically. And thanks to iCloud support, Pixelmator Pro files saved to the Photos library automatically sync between devices, so users can start editing on one device and continue on another.

The new Zoom Tool, with its beautiful, incredibly responsive navigator, adds a way to zoom and pan around images with ease. And the Crop tool now includes a Delete mode, the ability to crop to custom pixel sizes, and redesigned crop presets that free up even more space for viewing and editing images.

The major update also brings a number of additional new features and improvements, such as the ability to drag and drop layered files directly into existing images, refreshed Slice and Paint tool presets, image size templates for a variety of devices, significant performance improvements for documents with a large number of layers, and a whole lot more.

Product Announcements – Independent developer, SheetPlanner Software LLC of Alexandria, Virginia has released SheetPlanner 1.1, an important update to their popular planning, project and task management application for macOS.

Version 1.1 of the app brings numerous improvements. New features include the ability to connect rows to establish a dependency, a new progress column type that can be displayed in various ways, the ability to print the timeline, and so much more.

“The previous version of SheetPlanner made it easy to plan and manage projects on your Mac, as it made it simple to plan and visualize your long term goals, helping to keep projects and tasks on schedule,” says SheetPlanner Software CEO Peter Davey. “The new version of the software offers improvements and new features that make the app more powerful than ever!”

Using SheetPlanner, users can easily plan and visualize their goals and create project tasks and schedules using the app’s convenient timeline and calendar views.

SheetPlanner 1.1 offers numerous improvements and new features. Among the new features is the ability to connect rows to establish a dependency. Rows can now be connected using four types of dependencies, Finish to Start, Start to Finish, Start to Start and Finish to Finish.

The new Progress column type displays a row’s completion as a numeric percentage or visually as a bar or pie chart providing users with a way of immediately seeing an activities completeness at a glance. When viewing a project’s Timeline, a red vertical line provides context as to where the project activities fall relative to the current day.

Dates other than just the Start Date and Finish date can now optionally be displayed in the Timeline. The new feature allows users to display data on the Timeline that does not fit within the normal, start, finish and completion dates.

New Features Include:
* The ability to connect rows to establish a dependency
* Display dependencies via arrows in the Timeline, and new optional columns in the Outline
* A red vertical line now marks the current date and time in the Timeline
* Any Date column can now be included in the Timeline

* Printing the Timeline is now supported, and printing the Outline is improved
* Numerous performance improvements and bug fixes

A new Symbol column type allows users to include checkbox, flag, star, color icons, bullet journaling, Eisenhower quadrants, 5 stars, etc. Common uses for the new feature would be to include favorite or flag items to be filtered and followed up on. Eisenhower quadrants allow the implementation of Eisenhower matrix workflows, while checkboxes allow for the creation of checklists or matrices. Bullet journaling symbols allow users to tag their activities and follow a bullet journal workflow.

The new auto-enter cell values feature allows users to create default values for new rows, automatically populating values from the row above, formatted serial numbers, and more. The feature eliminates the need for repetitive data entry.

SheetPlanner 1.1 also consolidates available menus when right-clicking on a row. Filter improvements offer better search functionality for dates, time intervals, note text, and more. Filtering on the new Progress, Predecessor, Successor and Symbol column types is also available. Meanwhile, searches now accept relative dates like “Today,” “Tomorrow,” “This Week,” and more.

The app now offers Timeline printing, which allows users to print a hard copy of the Timeline or save it to a PDF file for easy sharing with co-workers and clients. Printing the Outline has also been improved.

“SheetPlanner was originally created to provide users with an easy way to track everything they need to complete their tasks and accomplish their goals. The new features in version 1.1 makes that easier than ever,” continues Peter. “Users can take advantage of the app’s 21-day free trial to ensure SheetPlanner is the right app for their needs.
