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.

    Haven’t tried it yet, but this company seems to already have a clean solution for psd and svn that looks interesting

    John, can you address Adobe’s decision not to include Version Cue in CS5?
