What's new in version 1.1.5

-select an image
-look for the new tool box icon
-rotate image!
Multiple images can be rotated together as well by using multiselect.

Sorry for the delay on this! There were ALOT of bugs to fix when adding this feature.

FEATURES in 1.1.2
-Improved Auto Pack! - AutoPack now works on any batch import from Photos, Files, and Drag and Drop. It Auto works! Simply import multiple images into your board and they are no longer imported on top of one another.
- You can also still use Multiselect along with * auto pack on selected images
To use simply click and hold away from images to invoke a marquee tool. Drag select and press the auto pack button located in the image toolbar. Currently, it neatly packs all selected images by averaging the heights while trying to maintain images in order of how they are arranged already. This means Pack will attempt to keep adjacent images close to one another instead of randomizing their order. We will most likely add options to how images are packed in the future.
-*FOCUS MODE* when toggling the eye icon at the top right, you will now be able to zoom canvas, double click images for fast zoom, pan, and ROTATE your imageboard without accidentally moving your images around! The Ui is also hidden and much smaller in this mode to help you focus! No more accidentally image nudging.
-*HD Image Toggle* - You can now toggle on HD images or "High Resolution" for images that are getting to pixelated on import! You will fill up your board memory faster but can finally reference large files much better! Simple find HD image toggle in the settings tab inside each board
-Folder support from Photos App- We are now showing albums that are located inside folders in the photos app. This is a version 1 of this feature. Let us now how it works for you users that like organize your photos into folders.
-Intergrated Firebase Crashlytics for better bug reporting and detection. This will help improve the app in the future by gathering data on more crashes than before
-Improvements to importing from files
-Async loading added to autopack to give a better and more responsive user experience to images loading into the board


- Fixed a bug where selected images were jumping around a bit if you accidentally used another finger on the screen while moving the selected image.
-Fixed a bug that caused your first board thumbnail to be too low resolution
- Fixed Slow zooming bug
- Lowered the minimum size for images that are imported to 10x10. this should help with pixel artists that were importing very small images into the board but not being able to scale them

- *Multi-select improvements. *Click and hold away from images to invoke lasso multi-select marquee. *

* LOW MEMORY BUG- a small number of users were experiencing a bug that caused them to get a low memory message in their first boards when the boards were relatively empty. We believe that this was a memory crash error and that we have resolved all the bugs related to this issue. We have not however been able to reproduce this bug internally. If you are still experiencing this error that causes a low memory pop up in an empty board
We have found that if you experience this bug in your first boards, simply uninstalling the app and reinstalling it will remove this bug completely from Vizref.

If you need further assistance
* please contact us directly at *

We are still looking for a better fix but reinstalling has been working very well and no users have complained of the bug returning afterwards.

We are listening to all feedback for requested features. Please look forward to free updates in the future of more great tools for referencing your favorite inspirational images.

Thank you all so much for the support!
