Streamlining access reduces version management headaches
Survey results and demonstration
Wednesday, 4:45 pm – 5:00 pm Central
Design teams working in the same office or scattered throughout the globe all struggle with managing assets and files within projects. To assess the magnitude of this issue, Santa Cruz Software commissioned a study of 500 design professionals to better understand their experiences. One theme was clear – 97% believe their jobs would be easier if the latest version of every embedded asset was easily identifiable. In fact, well over a quarter (28%) of respondents said it would be “extremely easier.” In this session, we’ll review the results of this recent survey (Feb 2020). We’ll also demonstrate our solution using LinkrUI. LinkrUI is a best-in-class extension to Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign that enables direct searching, opening, placing and synchronizing of assets stored in a Digital Asset Manager (DAM) system or other storage services, such as Box and Dropbox. All of this can be done from within Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign.
