A week ago we introduced Blender Sync. Since then, hundreds of Blender users have started taking advantage of the new synchronization functionality.
Today we are introducing a new feature, exclusive for Blender Cloud subscribers: Image Sharing.
When you are working in Blender, you often want to share the content of your viewport, your latest render, a texture or simply take a screenshot of your current work session.
Now it's possible, with one click of a button!
How does it work
Download and unzip the Zip Bundle, then install and activate the Blender ID and Blender Cloud add-ons. If you installed a previous version of the add-ons they will be automatically upgraded. You need to restart Blender for the changes to take effect.
At this point you should see a new button appear in the image editor header. When you press it, the image currently visible will be uploaded to the Blender Cloud and you'll get a short link in your paste buffer.
You can paste that link in a chat or email and share it with anyone you want.
You can user the Window menu (in the info window on top) to take a full-window screenshot, and the spacebar menu to take an area-only screenshot (search for share).
You are in control
The images and screenshots you upload on the cloud are stored in your Home (personal) project. You are free to delete them anytime.
We cannot promise that your shared images will stay on Blender Cloud forever. It's a way to easily share between people, but not a permanent storage to show off your work. We will introduce limits on the maximum lifespan of a shared image. No worries, we're not Snapchat, so they won't disappear after a few seconds.
