If you need to design more than your run-of-the-mill emails and newsletters, Mail Designer Pro from equinux needs to be in your software arsenal. It’s gotten even better with the just-released version 3.0.
Compatible with Mac OS X 10.7 and later, Mail Designer Pro allows you to create eye-catching emails — including HTML emails — quickly and easily without knowing anything about HTML coding. With version 3.0, it adds support for Retina displays.
Version 3.0 packs more than 70 new ready-to-use design ideas that include full surface background art. You can choose from 500+ web fonts with all available font weights, as well as automatic and individual suggested font-fallbacks.
Mail Designer plays nice with other Apple apps. You can design your own multi-column newsletters using drag and drop, then send them via the OS X Mail app. You can add photos and pictures from a variety of sources, such as the El Capitan Photos app. You can also design buttons for your emails and newsletters, as well as create headers and badges. A variety of social media buttons, artwork and tools are included with Mail Designer Pro.
The app is designed for collaboration. You can lend your mail and newsletter designs to others. If you're working on team projects, team members can comment on elements and text, as well as protocol all changes.
For those who write basic emails and nothing more, Mail Designer Pro is overkill. However, if you even occasionally create more elaborate emails or newsletters, the equinux software can speed up your workflow and improve your e-creations.
For this new launch you can save 20% off Mail Designer Pro 3’s regular price ($39.99 instead of $49.99) for a limited time.
