Image Info for QX2015/2016

Discuss third-party XTensions® software for QuarkXPress 2015 and QuarkXPress 2016.
As the API hasn't changed between 2015 & 2016 versions, most XTension running in QuarkXPress 2015 should also work in QuarkXPress 2016.

Image Info for QX2015/2016

Postby Matthias Guenther (Quark) » 29 Sep 2016, 02:28

Hi all,

Creationauts just released "Image Info" for QuarkXPress.

It's an XTension for QuarkXPress 2015 and 2016 that is really inexpensive.

Please see here:

Thanks
Matthias

This is actually a small "Xtension" which provides more by giving the essential information about the image (native resolution of the imported image, effective resolution, color mode, file storage, and full of useful information ther). I bought, tested and adopted. Matthias, thank you for this information.

Hi Matthias,

thank you for posting about this Xtension!

There is now a new update:
http://www.creationauts.com/XTImageInfo.html

With the new XTension that I sent you in the email here's what you would be able to see:
1. Effective DPI (both X and Y)
2. Scale (both X and Y)
3. Profile (this is experimental)
4. Ability to check/uncheck Image properties to be shown in the palette (Brian wanted this feature, to save space on smaller screen sizes)

Thank you for you support,

enjoy!

Hi,
I just installed the update. This latest version brings big improvements on the information for a selected image. The value of the image size is in pixels. Would it be possible to have a choice of units? I work mainly in "Print". So for me, the values in centimeters would be useful. Although these values are given by the range of Xpress specifications. In any case, bravo for this Xtension very useful and very well integrated into QuarkXpress inkable since it is the pop-up palettes now become the new standard in Xpress. In addition, it is now customizable by selecting the information you want to appear on the palette.

Thank you.

HI Yvon,

I have experimented from your suggestion.
What I came up with was the dimension units in the palette reflecting the values set inside QuarkXPress.
So you have the choice from all the values from quark.

I would like you to test that, see if you like it. If it is good for you it probably going to be for the others. then I can implement this in the next update.

Will be sending you the new XT in your mailbox (paypal address) very shortly.

Keep in touch.

Hi Arnaud,
Thank you for taking on my suggestion. I tested this new function with multiple combinations of settings by changing the preferences of Xpress display units. I noted with pleasure that the values shown in the Image Info palette were perfectly correct. At each change preferences depending on usage. This small Xtension is really well integrated Xpress and very useful to me. Thank you and Best Regards.
