DFP – Proof
DFP – Proof eases the pain that is usually part of a traditional proofing workflow. Instead of having multiple versions of images and documents circulating around and trying to handle the inflow of comments from the people involved in the proofing process, everything is now possible to handle in a structured and documented way.
DFP – Proof supports multiple clients, each having one or more brands, within a brand any number of concurrent proofing projects may be created. Each proofing project will be visible only to invited users, who may comment, draw, chat, upload artwork, and set statuses such as “Approved” to images/pages or the entire project. Instantly updated and clearly visible statistics and filtering make it extremely easy to follow the progress of the proofing process.
Integration with Adobe Creative Cloud applications such as InDesign and Bridge, as well as saving assets to Creative Cloud storage, enables you to work in your favourite applications during the proofing process. Starting a new proofing project is possible directly from Adobe Bridge for images, and from InDesign or Illustrator for documents. Viewing the proofing project with all comments, tasks, and file downloads is available in all Adobe CC applications that support CEP extension panels. If you work with other applications you may always import PDF, and we provide a special service that extracts metadata and thumbnails for this purpose.
DFP – Proof: PackageMaker
With PackageMaker you can initiate a proofing project from any InDesign document, or selection of images in Bridge. If you are the admin of several brands you will be able to select brand, as well as set project name and start/end date for the proof.
DFP – Proof: Viewer
With the Viewer you select the brand, proofing project and page to see annotations, tasks and comments, as well as any enclosed files.
Color coded statistics help you to quickly identify issues that need your action. At any time you may easily move to DFP – Proof in your browser by clicking a button to open the project, or the specific page.
Your projects are easily found in the list view, and are shown with statistics in a clickable doughnut chart that instantly takes you to the pages or images that need attention. Each page or image in a proofing project may contain a searchable label, and you may search for this across all projects as well as within a project. You invite the persons that should have to access the project as either admins or reviewers, and can configure what actions each user role is allowed to perform.
The Board View lets you follow your projects progress from start to finnish, and gives you a good overview of new, in progress, and done jobs.
Whithin the project you can annotatate and draw on the image, as well as create tasks that are intended for action and shown in statistics for the project. Each annotation has a comment section, allowing a chat between users and file upload. A configurable status menu allows the user to approve or disaprove the image, and this status will be clearly shown in the projects doughnut chart.
Adobe InDesign, Bridge and PackageMaker
The PackageMaker extension for InDesign will scan you document for any existing XML markup, and let you select an XML tag to be used as label in your proofing project. In Bridge the filename will be used as label in your project. This allows you to make each page or image searchble by for example article numbers, image names etc, improving the proofing workflow for large documents and image collections.
Adobe Creative Cloud applications and Viewer
The Viewer extension runs well in all Adobe CC applications that support CEP extension panels, and allows you to view the proofing project directly from within the application.
