Release of MediaFire Express 0.15!

Thursday, October 25th, 2012

Hey everyone,

Today we are pleased to announce the release of MediaFire Express 0.15! Your experience with us is now getting much more personalized and literally more colorful! Here’s what we’ve got for you:

Screenshot annotations now have color control!

Now you can dress-up your screenshot’s annotation with colors.  You can now set the color of all of the annotation elements (i.e., arrows, frames, text, backgrounds, etc.) from a rich selection of eye-catching colors. Set warnings in red, for example add the annotation, “Add no annotations here!” for irony.  Add color-coded arrows, and rectangles. Fill text boxes and frames with color too. Assign colors to text! Even on a letter by letter basis.

Obliterate sensitive information from screenshots with the blur tool!

Need to send a screenshot that also happened to capture some information (e.g., Social Security number, home address, embarrassing browser history or other folks’ email addresses) that you’d just rather not include?  Just use the screenshot tool’s new “blur” tool to smear these sensitive details into illegibility.  The blur tool works by convoluting pixels into an impenetrable smudge.  Now you can have the best of all worlds: the ability to screenshot the entire area of interest and the ability to obliterate whatever part of it you want to redact.

Copy the screenshot image into the clipboard with a single click!

Previously the Screenshot tool supported uploading the image to MediaFire’s cloud, saving the image to the disk and sending it to the printer.  Now the screenshot tool gives you the fourth option: copying the image into your clipboard!  Now you can just paste that image straight into an email or editor.

Now Express runs on Windows 8!

Initially Express was not compatible with Windows 8.  After a minor tweak they are getting along famously.  Don’t hesitate to check that out and leave us your feedback.

Get familiar with the amazing MediaFire team with the “about us” link update!

Now the “about us” link in the About Box directs the browser to a page showing the MediaFire team so you can see the fine folks who bring you the MediaFire cloud, web-site and MediaFire Express! Yay!

Change the order of pending uploads any way you like!

Starting today you can view the pending uploads by clicking the blue button on the side of the status panel (i.e., the small window near the systray that is visible when an upload is underway and has a progress bar.)  The status panel presents a list box showing pending uploads when the blue button on the side of the status panel is clicked.  Each set of uploaded files are grouped in items in this list box.  The items are uploaded in the order shown in the listbox.

Now you can change the order of uploads by dragging files in this list box to a different location. Want a particular item to upload last? Just drag it from its current location to the end of the list. Done!

View the change log via the About Box!

Now you can view the change log (that is, this text) via the About Box.  Just click the About Box’s “change log” button and a popup dialog will present descriptions of the new features, changes and bug fixes delivered by the current version of Express.

We hope you guys enjoy all these new features, don’t forget to check us out on and let us know what you think!
