Adobe streamlines asset production with Generator
Adobe has launched Generator, a new tool for web and screen design workflows in Photoshop.
Adobe described Generator as a platform that brings Photoshop to the heart of the design process, enabling greater interoperability between Photoshop CC, Adobe Creative Cloud and third party applications.
The first Adobe Generator features for Photoshop CC and Edge Reflow include real-time image asset generation to save users the tasks of extracting, cropping, sizing and exporting. Tagged layers and groups in Photoshop CC are automatically saved and updated in real-time as individual files, in the format selected, while layers can now be exported as JPEG, GIF, or PNG with a variety of options, including scaling for Retina displays and varying levels of compression.
Adobe said Generator would give Photoshop CC users the power to eliminate time-consuming production steps while ensuring their designs are properly implemented both on the desktop and mobile screens.
Additionally, there is one-click asset import between Edge Reflow CC and Photoshop CC, including import of images and text directly into Edge Reflow, allowing designers to immediately begin their responsive design process and reduce manual production steps.
More information is available in an Adobe blog on Generator
These updates to Photoshop CC and Edge Reflow are available immediately to Creative Cloud members.
