Dropbox offers Cloud storage and file sharing services that enable individuals and businesses to securely share and distribute content. Due to enhanced security and ease of use, some say that it is evolving into a defacto DAM solution for many users, including creatives and art agencies.
Given that, here’s the challenge: Adobe InDesign does not readily link InDesign documents to assets stored in the Cloud: it only supports digital assets on the local file system or network. InDesign is too locally focused to see your assets in Dropbox, or anywhere else in the Cloud.
Silicon Connector fixes that, by linking InDesign to Dropbox simply and automatically. Beyond URL-based links to Dropbox assets from InDesign, Connector enables access to Dropbox from directly within Photoshop and Illustrator.
Before Silicon Connector, Adobe InDesign users had to link assets to an InDesign document locally, but when sharing outside of the network, they had to package the entire project as well as all the assets, creating redundant copies. This resulted in mass duplication of assets, long file transfers and versioning issues, challenges that were only compounded when sharing projects with multiple remote resources such as consultants, design houses or agencies.
With Connector, these barriers to collaboration are removed: everyone on your InDesign team shares assets via Dropbox. Update an asset in Dropbox, and the updated content automatically references the latest versions.
