Pound Hill Software on Thursday announced the release of MetaGrove Suite 1.1 for Mac OS X. It’s a suite of software products that provide Extensible Metadata Platform (XMP) support for Adobe Creative Suite 2 (CS2) applications. It costs $299.
The MetaGrove Suite is a set of plug-ins used in CS2 applications. It optimizes the use of descriptive metadata to help assist with digital workflows, helping users to repurpose digital assets by making content easier to find. Once installed, the plug-ins provide schemas as menu items within the installed applications,
The software provide additional functionality than what Adobe includes in Acrobat, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and InCopy, according to the developer. You can define how XMP schema properties are represented and when and how the plug-ins communicate with databases used in the enterprise and workflow applications.
