Design Meeting inside Photoshop

My daily email check up usually gives me promos, forwards, personal message and more of other unwanted junks. And not to miss, some industry updates via some web feeds. And today’s such interesting catch was about a PLUGIN for PHOTOSHOP. “Live Share PS” – A true freeware that enables you to have collaborative design process. The new intuitive way of collaboration makes broadcast your Photoshop document live to people.
 LiveShare, a recently introduced browser tool for collaboration enables you to make meeting of any members. You could make instant changes to the design and it would reflect to other members live. Moving from screen grabbing, LiveShare PS lets you grab your P.S document and share it with a url. Moreover mobile mirroring option takes this collaborative process to the mini devices. Just away from a tap, you can preview your Photoshop document in any mobile device.
The plugin is developed by invision, with the help of Adobe Photoshop team. The sad face of the release is that currently it’s available only to Photoshop CC 2012, on OS X. We hope to see this collaboration to extend over all other OS and all Photoshop CC versions.
This amazing plugin is already storming the design industry, where collaborative design is the key in most of design studios.
