WoodWing Releases Smart Image CS4, an Assistive XMP Metadata Plug-In, for Adobe InDesign

(PresseBox) (ZAANDAM, The Netherlands, ) WoodWing Software, a leading provider of publishing software for magazines, newspapers, books and corporate agencies, today released Smart Image for Adobe Creative Suite 4. Smart Image aids designers placing photographs on an InDesign page by automatically creating caption and credit text frames containing the embedded metadata stored within the photograph.

Professional photographers and stock agencies generally add XMP or IPTC metadata to their photos such as copyright information, location, subjects and keywords. In page layouts, the credit and description/caption are often placed next to the photograph. Smart Image is able to automatically create the desired text frames in InDesign and place them according to the user's preferences, helping designers to avoid repetitive and time-consuming tasks.

Smart Image CS4 allows users to:

- Selectively import caption/description information, credit information or both
- Set object, paragraph, and character styling of imported text
- Specify a position, width, and rotation of imported information Insert custom text such as "Photo by" or "All rights reserved" to imported information Preferences for Smart Image are stored within the InDesign document itself, so styles based on user, company, or project are easy to manage without copying settings files between computers. Smart Image also allows caption and credit placeholders to be created and styled so that when a photograph is placed in a frame, its metadata can come in styled automatically.

Erik Schut, President of WoodWing Software, said, "Adobe Creative Suite 4 is a boon to the publishing industry. With Smart Image CS4, we aim to further increase the productivity of desktop publishing departments worldwide."
