Version Cue was a good idea that never took off. It was too hard to use for small agencies and not robust enough for large ones. Evolphin Zoom 2.8 fills the gap left by Version Cue’s demise—quite nicely, too. The software is easy to install and set up on either Macintosh or Windows.
PhotoCopy is an interesting, one-trick wonder plug-in that is easy to use. Essentially, it adjusts an image’s brightness, color, tone, detail, grain, and texture to match either a built-in preset or another loaded image.
Granted, Acrobat X (read ten) is a mature program and new, exciting features are harder to come by but for other programs, Adobe has simply borrowed ideas from plug-in developers (or licensed them), so it makes me wonder why they didn’t do that for version X.
A feature long missing from Illustrator is the ability to collect graphics and fonts similar to the InDesign Package feature. Art Files was created to fill that oversight.
Adobe Captivate is a program that allows the creation of online demonstrations and interactive assessments, usually of other software programs, but it can be used for presentations, too.
Packaging InDesign files takes up valuable time and computer resources. Simply put, Package Central offloads the actual collection of the graphic files to another system.
URL2hyperlink adds a few new menus to the Hyperlink panel: Convert URL to Hyperlink, Use Auto URL, and Auto URL Options.
