Hello Corona readers – I am Alex Souza, owner of Kwiksher and creator of the Kwik Photoshop plug-in. I started my company Kwiksher about a year ago with the goal of developing software that would allow anyone to quickly create and easily publish interactive storybooks using Photoshop and Corona. Before Kwik came to be, I had developed an earlier tool, a Fireworks extension, which allowed users to export Fireworks files for use in Corona. All of the layer positioning and text are exported to a main.lua file for use in Corona. (This extension is still available for free here.) After my experience developing the Fireworks extension, Carlos Icaza of Ansca challenged me with the idea of developing the same kind of tool, but this time for Photoshop.
