Displays 1.6 is now available

We’ve just updated Displays to version 1.6, our app to change resolution on Mac and manage monitors. This version adds a lot of features for taking screenshots.

First of all, when you take a screenshot, a new sharing window is now opened by default, as shown below. Inside this window, you can preview your screenshot and share it easily: either to an hosting service or to any other app installed on your Mac (we’re using the macOS sharing facility). In addition to Cloudapp and Dropbox, already supported, we’ve added OneDrive, Google Drive and FTP server support.

The other improvement is screenshot edition and annotation: directly in the sharing window, you can resize and crop your screenshot. We’ve added a lot of useful tools to annotate your screenshot, like drawing rectangle/circles, lines, free drawing, text, highlighter and even a blur/pixelate tool to hide sensitive data.

Last, we improved support for video card switch. MacBooks Pro and iMacs have two video cards, one called integrated (Intel) and the other one dedicated (Nvidia or ATI) ; macOS switches to the best video card, according to its needs. We’re now displaying the actual name of the video card in use, instead of just “Integrated” or “Dedicated”. And we’ve also added a notification when macOS is switching video card in use (enable this notification in Displays preferences, as this is turned off by default).

Displays updated to version 1.3

One month after its launch on the Mac App Store, we’re releasing a new version 1.3 for our app Displays, a powerful monitors manager for OS X. This update is available through the Mac App Store.

We drastically improved the screenshot feature. First, you can now choose the default location and filename of screenshots. By default, Displays will always ask where to save the screenshot, but this behavior can be changed in Preferences. Second, we implemented full support for Dropbox and CloudApp services: after taking a screenshot, you can upload it automatically and the link will be copied to the pasteboard. In Displays Preferences, you can choose to be asked before uploading the screenshot and you can play a sound and show notification when upload is done. We’ll add other services in future releases.

We also improved other parts of the app. When you’re using the “Hide desktop icons” feature, all your desktop functions are disabled, which sometimes can be frustrating. So, drag and drop is now supported on your desktop even if you’re hiding desktop icons. When drag occurs, the desktop is revealed and when you drop the file, your desktop icons are hidden again. Last, the mouse pointer highlighter can now distinguish between left and right click (different color).
