    We're starting to beef up our file support for the new 'Studio' plan, and Sketch is definitely on the wishlist :) In the meantime, you can drag designs directly into Niice from Sketch like this

    And I hear you on the copy+paste support, something we need to look into.

    Four years ago this week, we launched the first version of Niice (known internally as Vanilla Niice). Since then we’ve learned a lot about how creative teams of all shapes and sizes collaborate, and the common problems we all face.

    The creative process is a conversation, and when creative projects fail it’s rarely due to a shortage of ideas or talent; it’s because communication breaks down. This makes sense when you consider that all of our communication tools were designed for words, not pictures.

    We believe there's a need for a tool that’s designed for free-flowing, creative discussions; that enables us to present & critique our ideas in a visual way without having to be in the same room at the same time, or even the same timezone.

    So today we’re launching Niice 2: a canvas for creative discussion. It’s a feedback tool that’s easier than email, and a smart, shared visual library for your team.

    I like Niice, but then I’m biased ;)

    That's interesting, so getting in touch with press and saying "we've been featured on Product Hunt" makes it more newsworthy? I really suck at all that kind of stuff... I'd rather design a new feature than write a press release, which leads to us having a bunch of cool stuff nobody knows about :D

    Good question, I'm trying to think how we could figure that out... the only tracking we have in the app is through Intercom, which tends to be pretty terrible for that kind of analysis.

    That's fair feedback, and pricing is always tricky. We have to make a living, but it's up to us to ensure the functionality is worth the price of entry. For folks who spend hours putting together boards for presentations, Niice is a huge timesaver, but if that's not a painpoint for you then you're not going to get the same value.

    It's up to us to keep increasing the value of the product so it's worth upgrading to more people, but don't worry... you'll always be able to use it for free too :)

    That's odd... we're not likely to have any images tagged with your name but when I do a search for Apple it gives me quite a few results:

    Could you send me an email at chris@niice.co and we'll try and figure out what's broken for you?

    Yep, hover over an image in your moodboard, then click on the 'effects' button on the left, and it should appear?
