It’s been over a year in the making and it’s our biggest release yet. We’ve rewritten and refactored almost all of the code and more than quadrupled the number of lines that make up the script.
Our goal was simple: Make Storyboard easier to use, and make it a powerful tool for every blogger, not just those who want to put images side by side. So whether you blog like Fer Juaristi or always post single full width images one after another, Storyboard now has features for you (culling, sorting, tagging for SEO, and more).
So what’s new exactly?
A whole new way to Storyboard. Visually craft your blog post in a web browser. Cull, reorder, combine, sort.
Quickly set ALT tag descriptions and file names as you build your blog post. The quickest and easiest way to make your images search engine optimized. This is a premium add-on (learn more).
Advanced Cropping add-on
Set aspect ratios for each image that you want to crop. Film shooters who blog a mixture of film and digital, this one is for you. This is a premium add-on (learn more).
Storyboard Droplet (Mac only)
A new way to build Storyboards from apps outside of Photoshop. Drag and drop from apps such as Lightroom, Photo Mechanic, and Finder. This is a premium add-on (learn more).
