Realmac Software, the developer behind popular iPhone to-do app Clear, announced today the release of Ember, a digital scrapbooking app for the Mac that prioritizes acquiring and organization of photos, drawings and other imagery from the Internet.
Ember started out last year as LittleSnapper, an advanced tool for sorting screenshots on the OS X desktop. While popular, it was limited in nature, and the release of Ember brings new features. Users are able to make “Collections”, which are groups that pull from the metadata of images in order to sort photos, as well as having a drag and drop interface in order to bring images from the web into the program. Ember also allows content to be shared and annotated through OS X’s AirDrop and Messages feature, as well as social networks like Twitter and Tumblr.
Drag in images from your Mac and around the web, and organize them into Collections. Apply tags to images, and build Smart Collections based on the tags and other metadata in your library.
Whether you’re collecting images for a project, screenshots for a client, or any other type of image, Ember’s organisational tools make it incredibly easy to group your images together. You can even save straight to collections from the Ember Browser Extensions.
Ember for Mac is $49.99 and can be downloaded from the Mac App Store. [Direct Link]
