I am considering setting up Sharing via Dropbox between a developer and myself during development. I will be developing graphics, and will be providing to the developer. But first, I will be placing the actual graphic (in it’s actual resolution to be used in the final application) into the mockup to see how it looks.
Now, with the graphic inside the mockup, and on Dropbox, is there anyway for the Developer to go into Balsamic and (1) export the graphic from the mockup at the same resolution that it was loaded into the Mockup? (2) is there anyway to do this simply without having to do an entire asset dump?
The reason for all this is so that, at least at this stage, I would not have to supply the developer separate files, etc., and track. Bottom line would be that whatever is in the mockup is the graphic.
I do understand that there will could be different variations of a given graphic depending type of phone, etc. However, I still think it would be convenient to simply have them extract the graphics as they are placed in the mockup as a review/sharing mechanism (e.g., simply dragging and dropping a graphic out of the mockup onto the Developer’s desktop).
EDIT: I did a quick test and it seems that the graphics are getting resized anyway. So the export files (via export BMML) are smaller than the originals so would not be appropriate for App usage (unless there was a feature to maintain the original image). Perhaps all this gets off BM’s current path a bit too much.
