Storyboard 3.0

Posted by | December 10, 2014 | Announcements, Storyboard | 4 Comments

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?

    Will you have a update to Storyboard 3 soon? I love it but it could use a few updates to make it better.

    • Hey there,

      What would you like to see improved? We appreciate and value your feedback

        Just thinking about it quickly, I always create my images as a row, When using the droplet can it just default to that instead of asking me every time. In the old storyboard if you selected to crop all, the crop for the second image would default to the last crop size, I understand it’s different now because you can select the crop sizes in the storyboard dialog but perhaps have an option to use the old way, like if I just want to crop 3 images the same based on how I crop the first one in Photoshop (I hope that makes sense). Also, I never add captions to my images but the seo features add title and caption to the image when imported into wordpress, I would prefer the metadata added to be title and alt text. Maybe there is an option for that I will have to look more.

    Do you have a changelog for Storyboard? I had no idea it had been updated I just tried to redownload and noticed the version number had changed. It looks like at least one of my issues had been addressed. You should put a blog post when you update.
