Extensis Portfolio 7 for Mac OS X

Extensis Inc. has announced the availability of Portfolio 7 and Portfolio Server 7 for Macintosh. Portfolio enables photographers, graphic artists and other individuals and workgroups, from those in small-to-medium sized organizations to organize, retrieve, repurpose, and distribute digital files quickly. Portfolio Server also provides instant access to assets across the Internet and other wide area networks. The most dramatic new addition to the Portfolio 7 Suite of products is NetPublish, an add-on module that automates the process of dynamically distributing Portfolio catalog contents through the Internet. With NetPublish, full-featured websites can be created in seconds -- with no knowledge of HTML or JavaScript required. With a simple, wizard-like interface, and using professional-quality templates, users can build sites that include built-in image search, collection baskets, low-resolution previews and batch-download capabilities.

For greater efficiency and real-time collaboration, Portfolio's new AutoSync functionality allows users to assign tasks to Portfolio Server, enabling automatic synchronization. This feature also offloads file management and processing to Portfolio Server, boosting the system's overall workflow efficiency.

Other new features include One Click CD/DVD archiving, Batch Image Conversion that allows users to convert image files to JPEG or TIFF format, with controls for resolution, size and color mode, and Round-trip embedding of IPTC and XMP metadata into JPEG and TIFF files.

Portfolio 7 is available at an estimated street price of $199.95US with a single NetPublish license. Additional NetPublish licenses can be purchased for an estimated street price of $199.95US (five concurrent web connections) or $999.95US (unlimited web connections). In addition, upgrades to Portfolio 7 are available for an estimated street price of $99.95US.
