PROOF-it-ONLINE Releases New Online Proof Reviewer
Press release from the issuing company
NAPLES, FL, December 12 -- PROOF-it-ONLINE announced that it has launched an interactive proof viewer that allows Mac or PC users to view, annotate and approve jobs over the Internet using Internet Explorer, Netscape or AOL browsers. The enhanced ReViewer capability enables marketing and graphic arts professionals to integrate online proofing and project approvals within their existing sites.
The print or design buyer has the capability to view, annotate, comment and approve work in the browser without the need for costly software downloads or installations. The changes are in the functionality of the viewing and annotation tools. The annotation tools are now available as a drop-down toolbar from the viewing window. Reviewers can draw circles, lines and arrows as well as highlight certain areas of the proof itself. The text tool allows the reviewer to change type size, style and color as well as to place text right on the image.
Additionally, the reviewer has a choice as to whether to view a proof at a standard or
higher resolution. The new viewing interface delivers increased compatibility to Mac and PC users and supports all browsers 4.5 and higher.
PROOF-it-ONLINE’s focus is on creating a streamlined solution for the proofing and
approval process, a crucial part of the creative workflow. Online proofing eliminates the need for printing costly proofs and delivering them via fax, email, courier or overnight letter. Many in the creative management process have moved to emailing or posting PDFs or other formatted files for their clients to review. PROOF-it-ONLINE takes their electronic proofing process one step further by adding interactivity and automation to this process. Reviewers not only view proofs, but they also have the ability to annotate and comment back to the person who posted the proof, creating a detailed record of each step in the process.
