Adobe Drive 2 now available on Labs
This one’s admittedly esoteric, but potentially interesting.
Adobe Drive lets Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign work more easily with asset management systems. A preview version of Drive 2.0 for CS5 is ready for download from Adobe Labs, enabling you to:
- Open and save files directly from the CMS/DAM server
- Enter check-in or version comments
- View multiple versions of managed files
- Browse/search the CMS/DAM server for assets based on metadata
The interesting part is that Drive connects with third-party systems that support the CMIS standard. I don’t have more details at the moment, but I’d like to see working with Photoshop and Subversion et al. made simpler.
