Today we launched screenshot captions and a new screenshot viewer. The launch was not smooth - the edit form was broken and some skins may have had their renders replaced (about 10 recently modified skins were affected). Things should be OK now. There have also been some performance issues I am still ironing out. 

Here's a summary of new features:

  • Improved edit form UI
  • Zooming
  • Panning
  • Captions
  • Sharing
  • Downloading & Fullscreen (less useful but came out-of-the-box)

Hope you like it! Let me know if you see any issues!

    Screenshot viewer Looks great, much better than old one imho. Although, there are few thigns that are bugging me. 

    One of those is that bottom gradient with submission title doesn't disappear after some time of inactivity. 

    Another one would be too long wait time before top gradient with tools icons disappear after inactivity. I think that 2 seconds would be enough.
    Good call, set to 2 seconds. The caption can't easily be hidden - maybe with some hacking.

    The shelf at the bottom gets in the way though, and not really necessary (thumbs are visible in the submission profile afterall), so I'd personally get rid of that part.

    Other than that I like it, it's better than the previous implementation. And it's really nice to see caption support too.
    It can be toggled up and down, but yeah would be cool to have it hidden by default when you open it.
    Done - good idea.
