QuarkXPress 6.5 offers PSD Import, more

Quark Inc. on Tuesday introduced QuarkXPress 6.5, a new version of their flagship desktop publishing software. New features have been added including the QuarkVista image editing plug-in, native multi-layer Photoshop file import and layer editing and an upgrade to the QuarkXClusive XTensions module used for variable data publishing that's available only to Mac OS X users.

I am mildly impressed that Quark is offering 6.5 free of charge to 6.0 owners. It is more like them to charge us another $700 for the upgrade. This means we will get it. So I will have to take it for a spin once I get it installed. Although I must say the amount of Quark jobs we get at Student Publications is very few and far between these days. Which is a good thing.

So quark can now handle PSD files! And they could not even do it themselves! They had to get the (wonderful) plugin developer A Lowly Apprentice Productions to do the work.

Lets see, InDesign has done PSD files since what, version 1? I do not know what the numbers are like, but from people I have talked to in the various print industries, Quark is looking the stronghold.

Hell, Pagemaker's been able to import PSDs since version 6. Whoopty frickin' do. Welcome to the party, Quark.
