Realmac Software, the company behind the well know web building app RapidWeaver, have announced a significant update to Squash, the popular batch image compression app for Mac.
Squash 3 for Mac has been in development for over six months and has been rewritten from the ground-up using all the latest Apple technologies. The entire app has been reimagined with a complete new user interface and tonnes of useful new features.
Squash 3 offers a way to quickly batch process images. Everything from resizing, converting, applying filters, to compressing, and renaming.
Built to be fast and easy to use, Squash 3 simply asks that you drag your photos or images onto it and select what you'd like it to do. That's it. No complication, no fuss. And all in an app that's right at home on modern Macs running macOS Big Sur.
Squash 3 has moved away from the flat design trends of the past few years and introduced a more rounded UI, with drop shadows, gradients, and playful sounds. It's also introduced a gloriously skeuomorphic icon that still sits nicely in the macOS Big Sur dock.
All of the vintage camera effects and borders that were built into Analog for Mac (and iOS) are now available for Squash 3 as filter packs.
A Short History: Analog for Mac launched back in 2011 and was a much loved app by many Mac users around the world. Unfortunately, Analog was acquired by another company and never improved upon. For many years, Analog was left to rot in the digital graveyard, due to system compatibility it was eventually removed from sale. Rather than let all that engineering and the meticulously researched vintage effects go to waste, Realmac Software reacquired Analog for Mac and iOS in 2020 and ported the effects system into Squash 3.
