Site Redesign, New Resize Feature, and Improved Help

February 16, 2009 at 5:10 pm 2 comments

You may have noticed that PrintWhatYouLike looks a bit different now!  We worked with a great web designer to come up with a fresh, fun, new look for the site.  The process by which we came up with the new design was interesting.  We set up a contest on 99designs.com and received submissions from designers all over the world.  In the end, we picked the design we liked the most.  Could you tell that the old site design was done by programmers? 🙂

We also added a new feature that allows you to resize any element on the page.  This feature is great for:

  • Reducing the size of big images that you want to print
  • Compressing elements that have a lot of whitespace

We expanded the help on the toolbar so that it explains more than just the keyboard shortcuts.  On the toolbar, there is a question mark at the top of each grouping of buttons.  Clicking on the question mark will display the help section for each of the commands.  We also have a new Help page that should answer most of your questions.  If you were ever confused about how something worked, go check out the new Help page!  If you have any other questions you would like answered in the Help section. send us an email.

Side note: We changed a couple of the keyboard shortcuts so that they are more intuitive.  The keyboard shortcut for More is now M, and the keyboard shortcut for Less is now L.  We also removed the keyboard shortcuts for the page level commands, Remove Background and Remove Images.
