With FotoWare's new iPhone App media professionals can access their archives from anywhere with their iPhone. They can search and browse archives, and professionals out in the field can add metadata to new pictures, and upload to the FotoWare server. Users can get alerts on their iPhone when new pictures from any source arrive, - thus articles can be updated up to the very last minute before deadline.
FotoWare's new Extension for Adobe CS5 makes it quick and easy for Graphical Designers to search and retrieve pictures and graphics from the FotoWare archive inside the user interface of Adobe InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator. Adding pictures and graphics to an InDesign document has never been quicker and easier than this! Finding the correct picture for enhancement in Photoshop, and the corresponding graphic in Illustrator for editing, is just as easy. Just like the FotoWare plug-in for Microsoft Word and PowerPoint that was introduced in Service Release 3, the new Extensions provide access to the FotoWare media bank inside the native application. Users with login can therefore take advantage of FotoWare's powerful search technology and find the desired file without leaving the well-known Adobe user interface.
