Fotowall One Hundred Thousand

Today Fotowall reached the 100’000 downloads mark! It’s a HUGE result, and it’s even more incredible if you consider that we have no homepage, no advertising other than word-of-mouth and those are the downloads of the XP/Vista release only (we have the linux and mac releases too)!
If you haven’t downloaded the latest release, do it now! 😉

To celebrate this result, here is a short teaser for the upcoming version (that will be out in one week):

A big thank you to the team: Arnaud Tanguy, Alessandro Portale, Andreas Brech, Georges Dubus, and translators Martin Zimmermann and Marcio Moraes.

Fotowall 0.7

Fotowall 0.7.1 has been released today! Get it while it’s hot 😉

FotoWall 0.7

New features in Fotowall 0.7. In the top left area you can see the web image selector.

With this release Fotowall integrates with the deep web. You can now search the network with the embedded flickr search pane and add the images to the canvas. This opens up an infinite can of content, all available for your pleasure ;-).

Other relevant features include:

  • support for Qt 4.6 (brings animations and transparencies)
  • usability fixes (rubberband selection, deletion, etc..)
  • cleaner design (new icons, loadable frames, better property dialogs)
  • italian, french and german translation
  • check for updates and web links

Don’t hesitate to ask for missing features and always remember that you can rotate pictures by dragging corners with the right mouse button 😉

Enjoy your Fotowall!! 😀

update: Fotowall’s got a homepage 😉
update 2: this old article refers to Fotowall 0.2.. we’re close to the 1.0 now!

You always wanted to create quick graphics composition from a bunch of photos you have.. and now your dream came true! With Fotowall you can drag some pictures in the canvas, place them as you like, put a title on them, change the colors and the gradients the way you like and finally render a poster-sized graphical composition of them!

Take a look a this quick video tour. In less than 2 minutes you will see the whole process, from installation to the rendering of a wallpaper.

You can find the source code following the link. The program runs on every Linux, Windows (XP, Vista, 7) and Mac OS X out there! (So even Ilan will be able to do a “two hands saw” in his awesome OS!! :-))

Thanks goes to David Eccher for his suggestions!
You rock man 😉
