Our new vision is to be a simplest yet fastest place to create great looking image design with the help of automation. So it is not only for quotes, but it should able to handle more complicated and richer than that. We have created roadmad to achieve that.

About Version 5 and its future

To support our new roadmap, we put new features and new UI/UX into Version 5. Here are the main big Four:

The Layers

The biggest difference with previous version is the introduction of Layers. This layers will enabling user to create much more creative artwork. Basically we split design objects into stacked layer where you can change its properties or stacks. We are going to write more detailed article about how layer work. But the point is that this layer system will make it more future proof because we can add as many customized graphic component.

Our own graphic assets

We are about to producing our own graphic assets including font, backgrounds, cliparts, frame, particles, overlay texture, prettymuch everything to support artistic and unique image result. We are planning to start it on August.

Introducing: membership

We want to support our donors more. Thats why we introduce membership. By default, everyone who want to create design on QuotesCover will have the same experience, except we enhance it with new quote maker app: version 5 for guest. Version 5 for guest have more features and better performance compared to Version 3.4 (This is the version before we introduce membership).  This means everyone will have more benefit and the donors will have even more.
