Almost all our users upgraded to the new version and are loving every minute of it!

Keep sending us feedback because we constantly want to improve the system and with your help, Ginipic can become the best image search desktop client out there.

We’ve started working on a Pro version for Ginipic, we’d love it if you could let us know what you think should be there. We’ll give out free licenses for anyone with insightful advice :)

New Version Released!

Tuesday, May 5th, 2009

We’ve taken all the feedback you’ve give us in the past few months and rolled out a brand new version for you.

Some new stuff:

1) Advanced search – now you can do advanced searches on specific providers or all of them together! You can even make your own custom advanced search queries, so you can do a multiple advance search settings across our supported providers.

2) Added new stock photo sites – 123rf and crestock

3) Smoother interface – 50% performance boost!

4) Lightbox – now you can save images in a light box and keep on searching without losing favorite pictures

Thanks for the feedback!

So it’s been a bit over 2 months since we launched and boy what a ride.

We can’t reveal the exact numbers, but we’re in the 10s of thousands! (and not just 20 :) )

We really appreciate all the feedback you’ve given us and you’ll soon see it in the new version due next month.

Here are some great quotes about Ginipic:

Ginipic, if I were Photoshop, I’d marry you” – Twitter via @eristoddle

I had held off purchasing a similar solution, not only because I did not really like the interfaces, but because I’m always looking for the best before I buy – this time I did not have to purchase a thing!” –

Thanks for the support and all your feedback!

Ginipic Update Released

Wednesday, February 18th, 2009

We’ve just released an important update a few hours ago. All existing users will receive the update automatically the next time they open Ginipic (assuming they haven’t turned automatic updates off). New users will simply download the new version. In this version:

  • New search sources! We’ve finished integrating Dreamstime and Stockxpert. This brings our total number of stock photography sources to 3 including Fotolia. We plan to keep adding more commercial stock photo sources in the near future to provide the most comprehensive search possible. We’ve also added the “All Stock Sources” source, which searches from all stock photo sources simultaneously.
  • Performance and memory fix – we’ve found a memory leak and fixed it. The leak caused the app to slowly gain virtual memory after running for a long time (and sometimes even crash).
  • Small bug fixes.

To manually check if you have the latest version open the Main Menu (down-arrow button on the top-right of the search window) and click Check for Updates or thru the About screen. New version: 1.2.1311.9072.

Please keep sending us error reports if you encounter any – they are helping us a lot!
