Ember’s New ‘Smart Drawing’ Feature Magically Turns Your Shaky Sketches Into Smooth Shapes


Ember Library

Ember for Mac, the terrific scrapbooking tool from Realmac Software, has just received its first update following its debut late last month. The release adds a new feature called “Smart Drawing,” which magically turns your shaky sketches into “beautifully-smooth shapes.”

“We’ve been hard at work bringing some frequently-requested features to Ember,” Realmac says in the release notes, “and today’s update adds what we’re calling ‘Smart Drawing.’ As you annotate your images, Ember detects you’ve drawn an arrow, circle or square, and magically replaces your drawing with a beautifully-smooth shape.”

In addition to Smart Drawing, Ember 1.1 offers a number of other changes and improvements, including:

• Drag images straight from the Finder to Collections in your Ember library!
• Because your GIFs need managing too, Ember is far smarter about dealing with them. GIFs + Ember + Sharing to Tumblr == Awesome
• When you click “Full Width” in the Ember browser the width now tracks any window resizing. P.S. Did you know that you can drag and re-arrange the width of the browser?
• Each image’s file type is now visible in the Inspector.
• Lots of other small fixes and tweaks to ensure your Ember experience is as smooth as possible.

Ember 1.1 is available to download now from the Mac App Store. If you don’t already own the app, it’s priced at $49.99, and we highly recommend it.
