T2 Sneak Peeks: Images and Colors

Friday, October 05, 2007

Bee Docs' Timeline has always been first and foremost about communicating history in a beautiful and elegant fashion.

To this end, T2 will introduce event images! To add images to events, you simply drag and drop images from the image panel onto the events in your timeline. The timeline automatically resizes the image and reformats the event layout to fit the image. You can also drag and drop images from other applications.

To create the following timeline, I dragged images of jazz piano players directly from Safari (wikipedia.org) onto the related events.

Images can be resized on a per event basis or in bulk, and your events can also include notes and hyperlinks as well. Notice that two of the events shown in the screenshot contain notes and that each event can link back to the Wikipedia article that describes the event. Like the other screenshots that I am posting, the layout is completely automatic, there was no dragging events around to make them fit.

This is one of the most requested features and I am thrilled to be able to provide the functionality with T2!
