I recently launched my product on PH, Reddit and HN but only just realized I never got around to sharing it here..
The launch went amazing!
Product Hunt: #1 product of the day, #1 product of the week and #4 product of the month
Hacker News: #1 on Show HN, #15 on the front page
DesignerNews (#2), featured on Codrops Collective, tweeted by CSS tricks and featured on many other smaller sites!
Result: 32k users in the first 7 days😱
But since I never shared it with IH, here is a little bit of background:
I regularly want to share what I've worked on with others on Twitter or Slack/Telegram.
However, sharing a simple screenshot always was a bit too bland for my taste... I wanted to make it look better. Give it a background, put it in a fake window with some shadows etc. Make it look like all those fancy Dribbble shots!
You can do this in Photoshop or Sketch with some templates but that takes a lot of time if you just quickly want to share something with friends or coworkers.
That's why I build Screely. With Screely you can instantly generate a beautiful image from a simple screenshot without needing to dive into Photoshop or Sketch first.
Upload an image, choose your background color and hit that download button so you can share it with others.
