Xinets WebNative & Versioning Plug-ins ArriveWorkflow optimization for InDesign CS and versioning plug-in for Photoshop (October 05, 2004)
New at Graph Expo 2004, Xinet, Inc. will release its WebNative application plug-in for Adobe InDesign CS, Adobes award-winning layout and design software, and a Versioning plug-in for Adobe Photoshop, designed to help companies manage image-naming conventions.
WebNatives new workflow-optimizing features mark the next phase of production automation and flexibility for printers and prepress companies.
"With powerhouse production features and unrivalled creative tools, InDesign CS is reinventing page layout and design," said Mark Niemann-Ross, Adobe developer evangelist. "WebNative support is an added benefit for InDesign CS users, enabling designers to find and use corporate artwork and other media more quickly. In addition, Xinet's customizable interface synchronizes InDesign's powerful workflow features allowing our customers to efficiently perform a wide range of complex publishing tasks."
Released in 1998, WebNative is Xinets popular digital asset management solution that gives immediate, secure 24/7 access to files, print hot folders and archives on the server via any Web browser.
Xinet will demonstrate its products at Graph Expo 2004, booth #4447, at Chicagos McCormick Place South, October 10 13, 2004.
?In real-world design and production, WebNative is the core to creating time-saving workflows, and now InDesign users can tap into WebNative's essential features, said Xinet CEO Scott Seebass. ?The simple, intuitive preview interface allows remote and local users immediate access to InDesign documents and their components, which means fast job turnaround and higher productivity.
The WebNative Versioning plug-in for Photoshop on Mac OS 9 and Photoshop CS on OSX assists in the enforcement of a companys current versioning policies by automatically creating new versions of files following a naming convention specified by the administrator.
Additions to WebNative enable users to view and manage these file versions. The functionality of the plug-in allows users to take an older version of the file and designate it as the current working file, both from inside the plug-in and from inside WebNative.
Completing the InDesign CS / Xinet suite are Picture Wrangler for InDesign CS and Picture Wrangler for Adobe Illustrator CS to provide a consistent user experience across applications. Included with the FullPress package, Picture Wrangler is an automatic image re-linking and updating tool that makes working with complicated layouts faster and more efficient.
