File-Sharing Site Pushed By Adobe

Adobe launches Adobestudio.com, designed to help people share graphics files.

SAN FRANCISCO--Adobe Systems Inc. launched a file-sharing Web site, unveiled an electronic-publishing spec, and unveiled software on the opening day of the Seybold trade show here Monday.

Adobestudio.com, a site for sharing graphics files and information about them among teams of media professionals, went live Monday, nearly a year after the software company announced it. The site is part of Adobe's network-publishing strategy, which seeks to bolster Adobe products with common tools and file formats for publishing in print, on the Web, and via mobile, networked computers. Adobestudio's main area, Design Team, offers file sharing, version control, and project management for a monthly fee starting at $40 per user.

Adobe and other software makers will have to support emerging standards for encoding files with metadata about their rights and how they've been edited, as files traverse the Internet, Adobe execs say. At the Seybold electronic-publishing show, Adobe released a specification called the Extensible Metadata Platform for encoding this information within application files. Companies such as IBM, Kodak, Interwoven, and Xerox are supporting the spec, which is available in a software development kit and in Adobe's Acrobat 5, InDesign 2, and Illustrator 10.

Adobe also introduced a server product, AlterCast, which aims to let people prepare libraries of images for publication to Web-enabled devices. It's scheduled for delivery early next year at a starting price of $7,500 for a single-CPU server.
