ALAP Announces Update to InEffects Plug-in

Newly announced update to version 1.0.1 adds support for InDesign CS2, addresses known issues

InEffects is incred­i­bly cool!

A Lowly Apprentice Production, Inc. (ALAP) has released an update to their InEffects InDesign plug-in prod­uct. The update brings InDesign CS2 sup­port and is said to address known issues in the 1.0.0 ver­sion, and is avail­able as a free main­te­nance update to cur­rent own­ers of the plug-in.

InEffects adds image manip­u­la­tion effects such as those found in Illustrator and Photoshop (drop shad­ows, inner and out­er glows, bev­el­ling and emboss­ing, et​.al.) direct­ly into InDesign. Moreover these effects can be com­bined into and saved as InEffects styles, with all the muta­bil­i­ty InDesign users are already famil­iar with in Character, Paragraph, and Object Styles.

The aim of InEffects is to increase InDesigners’ pro­duc­tiv­i­ty by reduc­ing the need to tran­si­tion to Photoshop to apply spe­cial effects. David Blatner, renowned graph­ic arts con­sul­tant, train­er and author, was quot­ed by ALAP as saying:

At first glance, I thought InEffects was just for spe­cial effects -- but it’s actu­al­ly a great pro­duc­tiv­i­ty tool as well, let­ting me stay in InDesign longer instead of con­stant­ly switch­ing to Photoshop! InEffects is Incredibly cool. 

InEffects 1.0.1 is a free main­te­nance update for users of InEffects 1.0, and costs USD $99.99. It will work on Mac OS 9.1 or lat­er, and is avail­able from ALAP’s store which can be accessed at this link.
