iStockphoto has launched an incredibly simple and intuitive plugin for several programs in the new Adobe® Creative Suite® 6 (CS6), that enables designers to search and directly download images within the programs without interrupting their workflow. A one-click comp replace feature automatically exchanges comp images with purchased images, perfectly resized and positioned within the working page layout or design.
Adobe Photoshop®, InDesign® and Illustrator® users can now easily search iStock’s millions of files, download multiple comps during the creative process, finalize their designs and then simply replace the desired comp with the purchased image in exactly the right spot and in the right dimensions, saving time and increasing productivity.
“At iStock, we’re always looking for ways to help keep customers stay engaged in their creative process,” said Michael Cook, VP of product for iStockphoto. “Providing speedy access to our collection and easy manipulation of images directly within the tools they use every day is a key way to ease their workflow and provide a smoother overall experience.”
Another tool in helping iStock customers stay on track and on task is its industry-leading search engine. iStock’s search technology helps the user to find exactly what he is looking for in a short amount of time.
The free plugin allows customers to access purchased credits, review past purchases, add to light boxes and almost all of the other standard account management features that can be accessed directly from the iStock site. It is immediately available for download and is compatible with Mac and Windows versions of CS6, CS5.5 and CS5.
