We are excited to release Abyssale version 1.8 - Lemon edition! 🍋
Easy peasy Lemon Squeezy and a Happy new year!
Based on multiple feedback from our users, our focus for this release has mainly revolved on adding integrations to the platform. These integrations will allow you to setup automated workflows using your favorite tools.
Without further ado let's jump into this v1.8 changelog!
Scaling your creative production is time-consuming. Our mission is to give you access to a wide range of tools to change that!
Thanks to the Abyssale's Airtable application, these tedious and repetitive tasks are now... a piece of cake 🍰!
How does it work?
- Create and fill your Airtable records
- Install & setup the Abyssale Airtable app
- Automatically generate images from your Airtable records
To get you started we've created a tutorial to setup your Airtable <> Abyssale automation workflow. Check it out:
One of the most common techniques for modern marketers to engage with their audience is to produce interesting blog posts. However, you'll be asking yourself again and again:
- "Which featured image I'm gonna use this time?"
- "I spent too much time on this article, I don't have time to ALSO create a WordPress featured image 😅"
As you know a picture is worth a thousand words!
This is why we've created a simple WordPress app allowing you to generate a new, fresh, and on-topic featured image every time you create a new blog post!
How does it work?
- Install & setup the Abyssale WordPress plugin
- Create a new blog post
- Generate a featured image based on a template
To get you started we've created a tutorial to setup your WordPress <> Abyssale automation workflow. Check it out:
Zapier + Integromat + new webhooks
Last November we've added Zapier to the list of Abyssale integrations. Today, we're inviting Integromat to the party 🥳!
What is Zapier and/or Integromat?
These two platforms allow you to easily create hands-free automated workflows without writing a single line of code! #nocode
What can I do with these?
Connect your data and generate thousands of eye-catching images, in minutes, directly in your favorite tools. To get started we prepared pre-built templates for you to choose from, or you can build your own with our template editor.
What about the new webhooks?
We've also added a new webhook to Zapier & Integromat.
- Detect new created banners & instantly publish them to your favorite tool
You can learn more about Zapier workflows on our website.
We've created our first Zapier tutorial that shows exactly how to automatically generate banners from Typeform entries using Zapier. Check it out:
Create templates from auto-generated banners
We've added the ability to create templates from banners auto-generated by Abyssale. This new feature has great potential and will evolve in the upcoming months.
This feature is in Alpha (early stage development) and is a first step towards unifying our multiple core features (auto-generation, creative automation, template builder...) in one simple and streamlined experience.
