Xinet, Inc. announced its new, Uploader tool and an upgrade to Xinet WebNative. Uploader is a stand-alone application that lets vendors and contractors transmit photography, artwork and other deliverables to a client’s Xinet WebNative or WebNative Venture database by dragging and dropping files onto a desktop icon. Uploader can require vendors and contractors to enter metadata details before uploading files. The WebNative Venture database then automatically ingests that metadata and triggers e-mail notifications and other actions to streamline the workflow. Users can now review digital assets and the metadata associated with them by clicking directly on the images embedded in Xinet WebNative PDFs. Interactive PDFs make it easy to reuse images in production because clicking on a PDF reveals information about the source, original format and previous uses of a graphic. Xinet WebNative now makes Web previews from RAW camera files from 80 professional digital camera backs, including many Canon, Kodak, Minolta, Fuji and Nikon models. Users can see previews and custom-order these files. Xinet now offers a companion Versioning tool that brings the same functionality for Illustrator CS and CS2 workflows. The new Versioning tool allows designers to keep track of rounds of approved revisions, enables art directors to review work in progress, and lets clients view multiple versions of artwork in the context of a document. http://www.xinet.com
