PreviewThis! now on the Mac App Store!

It has been a work in progress for a couple of months now and I can finally say Version 1 of PreviewThis! is now available on the Mac App Store.

PreviewThis! is a photography app I have designed to help showcase your images as printed artwork when hung on a wall.

The apps main feature in my opinion is it’s ability to set a scale which allows you to add and work with image frames in real world dimensions. This allows you to easily showcase a variety of print sizes to potential clients. You can even add text annotations and share your completed previews to Facebook and Twitter via inbuilt sharing.
