Calgary-based iStockphoto has launched what it calls an “incredibly simple and intuitive” plugin for several programs in the new Adobe Creative Suite 6 (CS6). The plugin 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.
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.
iStockphoto is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Getty Images.
