Popsync similar image search

Popsync now gives you more of what you’re searching for. Using our Popsync Image Search, you can easily find similar images from within your Popsync image search results. Simply perform a Popsync search, select the result you’d like to see similar images of, and select :image_similar: (Show similar images) to view more specific image results.

Log on to Shutterstock from Popsync

Paid-subscription Bluescape users (Bluescape Pro, Business, and Enterprise tiers) are now able to log on to Shutterstock from within a Bluescape Workspace and search against your Shutterstock subscription library and retrieve images. Those with an existing Shutterstock subscription can also see the entire Shutterstock premium images library.

Text auto-sizing

You asked, and we listened! The February release gives Bluescape users the ability to size their text automatically using the new Reduce to fit option in the font size menu, which is now enabled by default. Set your bounding box and enter your text. Drag to resize the box, and the text inside adjusts automatically. Text that has been automatically resized is noted with an asterisk in the font size box.

Using Bluescape, you also have the option to deselect the Resize to fit option and have a set font size which causes the shape to increase in height as additional text is added automatically.

Social share

Social Share Demo

Share your workspace on Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn! You can easily share a workspace with a thumbnail of your choosing on social networks. When an external user selects your link, they see exactly what they expect to see viewing the thumbnails.

Popsync search from Bluescape Home

Getting the content you want has never been easier with Popsync. We’ve added a Popsync search box to Bluescape Home, allowing users to get the images they want as quickly as possible.


Box search with Popsync for Bluescape enterprise customers

Enterprise customers can now add a search of a Box Drive location and make it available to users within your organization. Popsync searches the specified Box folder(s), which, once configured, appear as an image source when performing a Popsync search.

Note: This is a paid feature. Post a topic in Bluescape Support to have this feature enabled for your Enterprise.


Notes, Bug Fixes, & Improvements

Support for Apple Safari browser

With the March 2023 release, users who wish to use the Safari browser with Bluescape must upgrade to Safari 15.2 or higher.

Videos play in a Popsync workspace

Previously, when you accessed Popsync Image Search from Popsync.io, you were unable to play an uploaded video in your Popsync workspace. We’ve corrected this issue, and now you can upload and play videos in a Popsync workspace.

Simplified sign-up workflow experience

In previous versions, when attempting to sign up for Bluescape using Popsync.io and selecting your email verification link, you were taken to Bluescape Home, and your Popsync Workspace was no longer present. Now, when you attempt to sign up for Bluescape using Popsync.io, you see the saved/claim Popsync workspace, and you can continue your work as expected.
