SeeFile 1.5 Introduced

Software enables users to post PDFs online in catalog form

Big Picture

SeeFile Software has introduced SeeFile 1.5, a software package that allows users to post images, artwork, text files, and PDFs online in catalog form. Version 1.5's major improvements over previous versions include: a redesigned user interface; new functions such as the ability to create and delete folders and copy and paste files via the Web interface (rather than only through the file system as in earlier versions); and better performance on large (100 to 300-MB) files for use by large-format shops.

A Mac-based system, SeeFile 1.5 allows users to drag and drop images into the website catalog for easy setup and updating, and also control access to defined images and file groups. In addition, users can message clients about job status and guide them to specific images.

Price: $695 (10 users); $995, bundled with a 40-GB Mac Mini, ($1095 for an 80-GB Mac Mini). Other versions allowing more users are also available. An expansion path is provided so that users can grow the system to a larger workgroup configuration without reinstallation. (SeeFile Software: www.seefile.com)
