We added some NEW TOOLS

Hello friends! It's been long since we update our application as well as this blog. Efforts are on the way to make it one of the best image annotation app on the internet. Meanwhile, we found it’ll be good to the user-end if we gradually add new stuffs instead of a sudden new look and version.

We have added 3 new annotation tools in the existing app- Line, Pointer and Selective Blur. Line drawing capability was the most shouted one among users. Now user will be able to draw Line and place Pointer as per their requirement. Also, they can adjust the thickness, color, alpha, shadow etc. The major difference in annotation drawing with the previous version is, we have added the continuous annotation drawing approach. From now on, you doesn't need to click a particular annotation button again and again to repeat the annotation. Just select an annotation type and draw annotation as much as needed until you deselect it. Selective Blur is a ‘smudge brush’ kind of tool, by which user can blur the required portion of an image or screenshot. It is useful when you doesn’t need the entire image to be blurred. One can adjust the brush diameter with Strength slider.


Apart from these, there are some other things happened in Pixtick:
1. User can now Copy and Paste objects.
2. More fonts. Almost all of your computer’s fonts.
3. Text alignment- left, right, center and justified.
4. Object alignment. Align objects in top, left, right, bottom edge or vertical, horizontal center.
5. Revamped tool panel.

You’ll love these changes and added stuffs. Waiting to hear from you...

Color alteration issue in Mac OS X

After launching, some of our user who are using Pixtick in their Mac, reported us about color alteration problem in the captured screenshot and copied images. A big thanks to those people. They are not only using it but also informing us about the flaws in the application. We have tested it again in the same manner reported by them and found the issue. For example if we copy the below image -

and paste it in the Pixtick. The color changed dramatically and produce the below image.

We engage ourselves day and night to make it a past tense. After a robust bug fixing phase, we found the problem is with the Java applet and the way of storing of image data in Mac clipboard. We changed some of our code, altered some portion and add some new code in applet code to solve it. And as expected, its now solved. Mac user can now capture screenshot, copy-paste images without any problem or hassle. No color issue in Mac. Go happy Pix-tick-ing...

What is screenshot? How to capture screenshot?

As we are about to launch an online screenshot capture, image edit, annotation and publishing application, lets have some info about what SCREENSHOT is.

A screenshot is basically the snap or image of the viewable portion of the display screen. It can be from a computer monitor, mobile phone display, tablet screen or even television output. In our case, it would be the snapshot of the entire monitor screen or a particular open window of an application. When you capture a screen, computer stores it in a temporary storage space in image format. By the use of some software one can retrieve it and save it as an image. Screenshot saved as an image file is used widely in tutorials, tech articles, documentation, software reviews, help files etc.

The process of taking screenshot in different OS is varies from one another. Below we are discussing some of them.

1. To take snap of the entire screen, press the PrtScn (Print Screen) key.
2. To capture the screenshot of an active window, press Alt + PrtScn key.
3. After capture, paste it in Microsoft Paint (Programs > Accessories > Paint ) like tools to save it as a image file.

1. To capture the entire screen use Command + Shift + 3 key.
2. For a selected area use Command + Shift + 4 key.
3. The captured screenshot saved in user’s desktop as image file.

1. To take snap of the entire screen, press the PrtScn (Print Screen) key.
2. To capture the screenshot of an active window, press Alt + PrtScn key.
3. There are several utility software to work with the captured image. Take Screenshot, Ksnapshot, Gimp are few of them.

Most Unix distribution nowadays comes with the ‘xwd’ tools, which is pretty much useful in taking screenshot. Here is an example of how you can take screenshot and save it in png format in command prompt-
bash-3.0$ xwd -root | convert - /tmp/screenshot.png

iPhone or iPod (iOS):
1. Press and hold the Home and Sleep button.
2. Screen will flash and capture will stored in Camera Roll on iPhone and in Saved Photos for iPod.

Hope the information will be helpful. Awaiting for comments and suggestions.

Now back to what we have developed. If someone having internet connection, he/she can just open and start capturing screenshot. Not only capture, one can do annotations, editing, publishing in different format, upload and share in social sites. Plenty of solutions from a single web app. No download, No installation, no plugin.
