Less Time Chasing Assets. More Time Creating.

by Alisha Wilson in Digital Asset Management

Designers are a diverse group. But one thing many of us have in common: a very complicated workflow.

At least 12 open browser tabs, three-to-five Adobe programs, your downloads folder, screenshots from your desktop, your DAM, a sketch book, a cat and a strong cup of coffee.

There’s lots of back-and-forth. Lots of in-and-out. Lots of find this over here, then put it over there. 

When you finally do finish a project, you have to figure out how to hand it off to your Amsterdam-based boss for feedback. And it’s highly unlikely to be small enough to email.

What if you had fewer tools to juggle? Less time toggling between browser windows and more time kerning your type to perfection? What if there was a cleaner way to design?

That’s the beauty of using Webdam – it’s not just a place to manage assets, it actually streamlines your entire workflow. And now that we updated our Connector for Creative Cloud, Webdam works directly with InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator.

Webdam Connector

Here’s what that means for you: When you open a project in one of the Creative Cloud apps, you can drag and drop images, logos and any other approved brand files directly into your layout from Webdam.

No more pulling images from 10 different locations and then playing “Find the missing links.” You can “Edit original” from InDesign in the file’s native app, and any changes you make will be uploaded to Webdam and automatically update in InDesign.

One of the best parts of the new Connector? When you’re updating assets for a new campaign and populating a template – you just drag and drop the new brand-approved images from Webdam directly into your template.  

Now if Webdam could only brew a cup of coffee and feed the cat.
