Public Beta Launch of Iris Now Available for Users

Recently, the landscape of Mac image editing software has seen a surge in new entries. Among them are established names like Pixelmator and Acorn.

Adding to the mix, Nolobe has just launched a public beta for their new software, Iris, which arrives after a three-month delay.

The delay was due to an unfortunate incident: a fire that temporarily halted development. Fortunately, the team is back on track, and the beta version of Iris is now available for testing.

One notable feature of Iris is its streamlined single-window interface, which differs from the traditional multi-palette setup found in most image editors. This design allows for all open images to be neatly aligned at the bottom of the interface for easy access and management.

As this is still a beta release, users might encounter some glitches and are advised not to rely on it for important projects just yet.
