Introducing the New PosterMyWall
We're having an exciting 2016 here at PosterMyWall: We launched the new Poster Maker on new year's day and have since been updating it with new editing tools and features. The new Poster Maker is faster, easier to use, runs on tablets, and gives a sneak peek at our beautiful new branding which we will be rolling out to the rest of PosterMyWall soon.
Why a new editor?
We built the new Poster Maker from scratch with a focus on two things; having a stellar user experience and using the latest web tech. Web browsers and devices have come a long way since when we launched our first editor. The new one takes full advantage of today's powerful web browsers to give you a snappier experience.
We took everything we learned from your feedback and usage patterns in the old editor to completely redesign how you create posters on PosterMyWall. The new Poster Maker is easy to understand for new users and at the same time contains goodies for power users such as keyboard shortcuts and drag drop support.
In addition to supporting all the features you've used over the years (Erase Background is on its way, hang tight!), the new Poster Maker has a few new editing tools. We will be adding a LOT more features in the coming months.
Gradients. Gradients everywhere!
You can now fill in poster backgrounds, shapes, and text with either Linear or Radial gradients. This is especially useful when creating stylish layouts with customizable shapes. Gradient on text works great for titles and headings.
Text boxes with colored backgrounds
This was long overdue we agree. You can finally give your text boxes a background color and adjust its opacity.
Image filters and effects
In addition to easily flipping shapes and images, you can apply Color Tint, Color Multiply, Gradient Fade effects on images. You can also adjust the brightness of images to make them look just right.
We've added a lot of new cursive fonts. You will be able to upload and use your own fonts soon!
