New Feature: Visual Links

Links should be visual!

We believe that a link without a visual component just doesn’t work. You need to understand it at a glance, and images are great for this.

Now, you can now pick the image that best represents your link. The description and the title can be changed, too.


How it works:

Let’s pretend you decide to add this link to a mural: http://www.fastcocreate.com/1681583/like-pinterest-for-pros-a-new-platform-to-share-creative-inspiration

When added, you can change the thumbnail, title or description.

You can cycle through different thumbnails.

If you don’t like images, you can choose not to have a thumbnail.

You can always change these properties by right clicking on it and clicking the edit button.

And of course, you can access this site without leaving MURAL.


How did we come up with this feature?

We used MURAL, of course :)


Hope you enjoy it.
