Intelli Innovations Inc. on Thursday released Barcode Producer 3.5, an upgrade to its barcode creation software that adds support for Adobeis Creative Suite 2.0, which includes embedded Adobe Bridge metadata for easier searching for barcodes in EPS format, integrated thumbnail images that donit need to be parsed externally and Enhanced Instant Transfer buttons that send finished barcodes straight to Photoshop or Illustrator CS2. In addition, optimizations were made to the process of exporting EPS files for use with Illustrator CS2.
Barcode Producer 3.5 also features support for testing Interleaved 2 of 5 barcodes, as well as ISBN check digit validation for Bookland EAN barcodes. IPTC keywords and authoring information can also now be embedded in barcode files, granting users of such software as GraphicConverter access to generation and symbology details even if they donit own Barcode Producer. Users also now have more options for creating asset tags and can use the Streamlined Tasks menu to quickly access commonly used features. Performance improvements were also made to the software.
This is a free upgrade for all Barcode Producer 3.x owners, while users of earlier versions can move to the new one for US$49. The full software is $149. Mac OS X v10.1 or higher is required.
