And for this week, here are the updates:
#1. Save as Template
This is the long-awaited features. Now members can save their design as a template. This is useful for branding because it maintains consistency across all generated quotes images. For example, you can save a specific design as a template. And then in the future, members can create another one with different content, but feel the same even if it changed the dimension. This is a very time-saving feature.
#2. User Interface Tweak
After experimenting with a new user interface, it turns out that our old rounded corner is still the best for this kind of application. So we turn back into old and enhance it to support with our new features. Now our quote maker is not only capable of creating beautiful images quickly but also much easier to operate.
There are also changes in the way it opens graphic object properties. Previously the object properties are merged into layer properties as an accordion-style UI. This is confusing in some users, so we change it into a separate interface. If a user clicks on edit on the specific layer it will open the properties on the related objects. So it won’t open as a nested child of the layer bar.
#3. Solid Color Background Shuffle
If you like creating quote images with a solid color background, you will love this feature. Here is how: First, disable image background, and you will see a solid color background. Now click on background automatic button. You’ll see the background now randomly changed and the text and frame color also changed based on the background.
Future Improvement Plans
There are some important features that not yet implemented on the app yet. Here is the list:
- Branding Watermark
It is the ability to add your logo, web address, social media address, or specific name for branding needs. Planning to make it live at the end of October.
- Ornament Generator
This feature will make your quotes more attractive by adding computed particles that form beautiful ornament. I am still researching for it because I have not found an efficient code for this.
- Shapes and Cliparts
Have you ever wanted a simple hand-drawn arrow, a pencil-drawn circle or just a line to highlight specific text on QuotesCover? This feature will help you with that, plus we will add more cliparts for various needs.
- Illustrated background
By now you only have a background from a photograph. In the near future, we will design our own background with illustration style. This illustration style give more unique appearance, especially when you create printable quote images like posters, or cards.
