DesignBoard is a powerful yet easy to use tool for making composite images with full text support. The compositing view of the application allows for easy importing of images and creation of text with full layer management. The editing view of the application gives crop, trim and erasing tools similar to leading, full-suite image editors but without the complexity. Projects can be saved for later editing in the application's *.board format and finished images can be exported in standard image formats (png, jpg, etc).

DesignBoard is powerful and easy to use and has full Retina support.

Full features include:

- Full Retina support
- Crop/Trim images with a variety of selection tools
- Erase backgrounds with flexible eraser tools
- Full control over final image size, including support for very large images
- Full layer support and layer arranging
- Adjust font, size and color easily
- Save projects in *.board format for later use
- Export to standard image file formats (jpg, png, etc)

Usage tips:

- Use size menu to set desired final size
- Use buttons on lower right corner to add new images and text
- Double-click image to open the image editor

What's New in Version 1.1

- Fixed issue with crashing in OS X 10.6.8
- Fixed bug that changed layer order on save
- Fixed bug where text layers would crash after being reordered
