[prMac.com] London, UK - XChange International, the source for extended technology worldwide, are pleased to announce the release of the OpenNow Pro XTension for the newly released QuarkXPress version 8. OpenNow Pro is a link between QuarkXPress and image applications that allows users to open any Quark document image with the application they choose, and at the same time view detailed and comprehensive picture information. Users can simply double-click any picture to see all image settings, from colour model to effective resolution to the image's full path, and open the picture with up to 15 favourite image manipulation applications.
With OpenNow Pro, users are no longer limited to opening a picture with the application that the OS X Finder assigns by default. They can select any application they choose, and OpenNow Pro will add it to a list of recent applications so that the user can always switch back and forth between their favourite image editors. And, for even more control, users can "lock in" any given application to open all subsequent pictures with this application only.
For users who need to access image settings quickly and easily, the OpenNow Pro window puts all the information at their fingertips. Presented in an easy-to-read format, OpenNow Pro shows users picture attributes including: image name and icon, full path, file size, dimensions, format (EPS, TIFF, etc.), colour model (RGB, CMYK, etc.), absolute and effective resolutions, date modified, status (OK, Missing, etc.), preview resolution and default editing application.
In addition, OpenNow Pro comes with several useful tools for managing pictures. Users can reveal the picture or any of its enclosing folders in the Finder, update the image after it has been modified outside of QuarkXPress, change the preview resolution from high to low or vice-versa, and open the Picture Usage window to search for missing pictures.
Mac OS X 10.4.2 or later and QuarkXPress 8. OpenNow Pro is also available for QuarkXPress v7 as well as InDesign CS3.
OpenNow Pro is available now through XChange International. To order, or for more information users can visit the website, or call on +44(0)20 7490 4455 during UK business hours.
