Access Fotolia stockphotos without leaving the Creative Suite

I am happy to mention that our partners at Silicon Publishing used CS Extension Builder 1.5 to create an extension that runs within Adobe InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop (CS5 & CS5.5) and enables Creative Suite users to access the 14 million images available in Fotolia without leaving their applications. Using the Fotolia extension, users can search, preview, download and purchase images from within the Creative Suite.

One of the cool features is the ability to drag-drop any image on your Creative Suite project. Once you decide to purchase the image , it gets replaced with the high-resolution version. And by the way, purchasing can take place from within the extension. That simple… Check this blogpost by Silicon Publishing for more information and a demo you definitely don’t want to miss :).

This is one of the many examples showcasing what can be built using CS Extension Builder and the CS SDK. Feel free to send us examples of extensions you are working on and let us know how we can improve our tools.
