Introducing Kwik 3.2

Kwik 3.2 is here! Today I would like to introduce Kwik 3.2. This update brings some nice additions including: an easy way to create infinity scrolling (you can use it for backgrounds or any king of layers), as I have shown few weeks ago in this tutorial; a new message system integrated in the plugin that will allow Kwiksher to send you special promotions and announcements. As many people asks for a way to “never leave Photoshop”, this is one of our answers 🙂 an integrated way to renew subscriptions from inside the tool; Particle Replacement, a new option that allows you to import particles created by Particle Designer 2 into…

Preparing for the future

I would like to provide a quick update on what is happening here at Kwiksher. Website: As you may have noticed, my main focus (especially now that Kwik 3 is pretty stable) in May was (and still is) to fix the issues with the newest website. It is really nice visually but performance is still far from what I expect. I have changed the hosting provider and I will do it again today because the performance is still not acceptable. I am sorry for this inconvenience but, without this important infrastructure milestone, I will not be able to bring some really important news in the next days. Kwik: Due the issues…

Kwiksher’s New Shop Experience

After much work and sweat, the new website is finished, including a totally new shop experience, which includes access to your past orders as well. See the presentation video below and learn what is new: Are you having problems with the new site? For some users the new site sometimes cannot load pages or returns a php error. I am working with our provider to handle it as soon as possible. Meanwhile, just refresh the empty/error page and the right page will load fine. Sorry for this inconvenience. Did you like it?

Corona Composer GUI: do you need it? Check thoughts and the tutorial

Last week Corona Labs announced their new tool, yet in a beta stage, called Composer GUI (graphics user interface), which is pretty cool, by the way. If you haven’t seen it, check their blog. Minutes later, I received an email from a Kwik user asking about how it would change Kwik’s positioning for the future. You can read about my entire thoughts below but, in a few words, I would like to say that Composer GUI targets a different audience than Kwik. To clarify that, I decided to make a homage to Corona Labs, reproducing their demo in Kwik. See and take your own conclusions: A Threat Or An Opportunity? First of…

Update on Kwiksher

Hello everyone! I would like to share a few words on the past quarter, not only to remind of what we have done but also to give you a hint of things that are on my mind at this moment. You Speak, I Listen This first big milestone delivered was the official release of Kwik 3. Pretty much every reported bug was fixed and dozens of new features were added. Kwik 3 is more robust than its predecessors and ready to be used in teams, when necessary. More Services were added in our portfolio, to help users to improve their stories (thanks Anna Hines for your partnership here) but also…

Artist Spotlight – Julianna Goodman

I would like to introduce Julianna Goodman, author of This Monster, an app that was highlighted by Apple, during several weeks. Kwiksher's questions are in bold, to facilitate the reading. Feel free to send more questions to Julianna via comments below. I am sure she will appreciate. Enjoy! Tell us a little bit about you. Where are you based, for how long are you writing and illustration – in sum, what is your “story”? I am a designer / art director / illustrator living in Brooklyn, New York. When I first moved to NYC I worked as a freelancer at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. I then moved on...

Planning the future for Kwiksher and Kwik

With Kwik 3 being released, it is natural to expect constant updates for bug fixings. After all, now there is much more people using the new build. Today I released build 3.1.2, which fixes all reported and reproducible bugs. Besides updates, I think it is important to share how I plan to manage my week from now on. I constantly face myself stopping things to answer emails, generating delays in things that may have deadlines or different priorities. These changes will establish a predictable timeframe for you regarding when to expect updates, communications and new products. Exceptions will be handled whenever is necessary. Monday: Bug fixing and update release. As most users spend…
