The InCaddy Plug-In for Adobe InDesign CS is NetXposure's latest application for improving workflow for users of Adobe InDesign. It allows InDesign users to sync in with Image Portal for seamless workflow automation. Image Portal is accessed from the InDesign interface via a palette that allows for keyword search of all digital assets. Low resolution thumbnails from search results can be dragged and dropped into the InDesign document where a medium resolution image is generated. When the user prints the document a high resolution file is retrieved and inserted into the document. The latest version of InCaddy is fully compatible with Adobe Creative Suite.
InCaddy is now available for purchase and NetXposure ship Image Portal 3.0 in late July.
