DALIM ES CC CONNECTOR

Silicon ES Connector for Adobe Creative Cloud is a powerful extension to Adobe technology that enables direct linking from InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator to DALIM ES 5. Rather than creating copies of assets, Connector allows ES5 to serve as the sole system of record. For InDesign, ES Connector offers unique low-level linking to multiple assets in the digital asset manager (DAM). When an asset changes, the user is alerted and the asset is automatically updated to the latest version. With Photoshop and Illustrator, single assets can be checked out, updated, and checked back into ES.

The new ES Connector supports end-to-end creative processes. Features include:

  • A comprehensive suite of in-app controls for InDesign. Users can preview, place, and update DAM-resident assets, all without leaving the application. 
  • ES Connector creates links, not copies. This means no more duplicating images or packaging entire projects just to share with others. File transfers are reduced to a fraction of their former size.
  • Automatic in-app notifications: the entire team can stay current with the latest updates to every linked asset. 
  • Quick high-res/low-res toggling to accelerate image-centric workflows and generate faster previews. 
  • Rich metadata searches that help users quickly find and link to the correct assets.
  • Revisions management within ES.

 

 

Linking directly to cloud-based assets is a liberating experience for design shops reliant upon collaborative authoring, especially when designers do not share the same network. It is quite common for agencies and other organizations to work with freelance designers on InDesign projects, which normally means packaging all related assets.

With ES Connector, users are no longer forced to download files, link to local copies, or resort to cumbersome packaging, uploading, and re-linking when they want to share or update InDesign documents. Instead, they just distribute the InDesign file, and leave the assets on the DAM or Cloud. The availability of a single, secure, central source of assets saves huge amounts of time, while dramatically reducing redundant assets and the consequent risk of error.
