Widen streamlines creative workflow with awesome new InDesign Plugin

by ,

Adobe InDesign is a powerful, interactive piece of software that sets the standard for designers everywhere around the world. With the somewhat complex capabilities offered with InDesign comes the need to access digital content easily and effectively.

Widen is excited to announce our new plugin for InDesign users – via Silicon Publishing, a first-class group of software engineers, several of whom worked on the Adobe InDesign product – that allows workgroups easy access to digital images while working in InDesign. Users can now drag and drop digital assets directly from the Widen Media Collective into their InDesign layout and avoid the hassle of breaking links. 

The features: 

  • Drag and drop image assets from Media Collective into InDesign
  • Linked files so there is a direct association between Widen DAM and InDesign
  • Option for high or low resolution workflow
  • Automatic packaging of linked files


The benefits: 

  • Easy image access 
  • Save time switching between two applications 
  • Utilize high res or low res viewing


Widen DAM InDesign Plugin

Users simply drag an image from the Widen Media Collective search results into InDesign layout.
