Ember for Mac has been updated with new Blur and Pixelate annotation tools.

Ember is your digital scrapbook of things that inspire you - be it websites, photos, apps or other things. Just drag in images that you want to keep, organise them into relevant collections, annotate the images you need to give feedback on, and share your images to your favourite web services.

• Organise your ideas and design inspiration
Drag in images from your Mac and around the web, and organise them into Collections. Apply tags to images, and build Smart Collections based on the tags and other metadata in your library.

• Subscribe to your favourite websites
Subscriptions allow you to visually browse the web. Images can be saved to your Ember library, and shared with friends and co-workers.

• Build a scrapbook of designs you love
Save websites to your Ember library from Safari and Chrome with the powerful browser extensions. Ember doesn’t need to be running*, and you can send images to collections right from your browser. Ember uses the width of your browser window when snapping, meaning that the layout is exactly the same in the captured image.

Ember also features a responsive browser, allowing you to save responsive webpages at any desired width, and the Element Selection mode detects appropriate areas of the webpage to snap as you roll over them. There’s even handy presets for your favourite iOS devices to quickly set the browser width.

• Colours
Use natural language (for example, “Light Blue”) to search your library, and find matching images. You can even use Colours as rules in Ember’s powerful Smart Collections - for example, group all your five-star rated white Interior Designs together.

• iCloud
Store your Ember library in iCloud, and sync it across any Mac.

• Take Screenshots
Take screenshots with Ember, and they’ll automatically appear in your library with the name of the app applied to them. You can capture Fullscreen, Timed Fullscreen, Area and “Window” images.

• Sketch feedback on your images
Beautiful drawing and text tools allow you to give feedback on images. Cropping and rotation ensure that your images are always perfectly sized and aligned.

• Go Full Screen
Work undistracted with Ember in its own space.

• Share with friends and co-workers
Send your images with Email, AirDrop, Messages, iCloud, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Flickr and CloudApp

• Auto-detects iPhone and iPad screenshots
Library organisation has never been easier: just drag in those PNGs from your favourite iOS device and Ember will automatically sort them into “Phone” and “Tablet” for you!

• Import from LittleSnapper
Ember imports libraries from LittleSnapper, and adds them to your Ember library.

What's New In This Version:
Say hello to Blur and Pixelate - the two most frequently-requested annotation tools are ready and waiting to help you annotate images.

This update also offers a Library backup feature, and Ember automatically backs up your library as you go. As always there’s plenty of fixes and improvements (we count over 50). Here’s a few you might notice:
- A new option to hide “Seen” subscription images in the viewer
- Improved behaviour whilst processing images in the Unprocessed view
- You can now download images from the Ember browser’s contextual menu
- Fixed a problem where Quick Look previews would not show for images arriving from iCloud
- Fixed a couple of crashes migrating certain Ember libraries to iCloud

You can purchase Ember from the App Store for $49.99.
