What's New

Hello and welcome to another GIF Brewery update. The tiny brewers inside GIF Brewery have been hard at work with this update ever since they were told to stop making cat GIFs. Here's an abbreviated list of their updates and changes. * They've improved caption creation and quality. * They've learned to count above one, so now you may have more than one overlay/caption. * They've improved their knowledge of the space-time continuum, so overlays may now have their own start and end times. * They've tinkered with custom palettes and dithering. * They've made a GIF's Tumblr-ness more explicit. * They've renamed and rearranged some things. * They've decided they can live in a tinier space. * They've also done some work on GIF Brewery's plumbing. More information on all the changes can be found at http://gifbrewery.com. If you have any questions about them, feel free to also contact us via email or twitter (@helloresolvapps). Also of note: 1. The process of setting the start/end times for captions and overlays is not finalized. User feedback via e-mail or twitter is greatly appreciated in streamlining and improving this new functionality. 2. GIF Brewery's Tumblr indicator is *only* a hint. Tumblr ultimately controls what GIFs can and cannot work on their service. While, GIF Brewery will try its best to keep up-to-date, the end user should always double-check their GIFs versus Tumblr's requirements. 3. Past saved GIF Brewery recipes with captions will not show their captions due to changes in caption handling. Sorry for the inconvenience. 4. If you are using Quicktime components, such as Perian, Flip4Mac, or 3ivx, you MUST make sure they are up-to-date and compatible with Apple's Sandbox. Out-dated components may lead to GIF Brewery crashes. The brewers would also like to remind you that if you experience any bugs/issues with this update or the app in general, please email contact@helloresolven.com or send a message via twitter (@helloresolvapps). The brewers toast to your helpfulness in tracking down bugs.
