InDesign Integration


The Flight InDesign Plugin let you establish direct links from InDesign to your Flight media library.

The direct connection allows you to not only drag and drop images from Flight onto your InDesign layout, but also provides a true URL link back to your images in Flight.

With the plugin, InDesign connects images as true Flight URLs. No need to download assets prior to placing. No creation of duplicates. No more pointing to local storage locations.

Depending on your project needs, you may toggle one or all image links between high-res and low-res with a simple click.


This is the change in workflow designers everywhere have been waiting for! No more linking and re-linking packaging issues. This is a powerful, elegant and practical solution that simply makes sense for maintaining a library of digital assets in the cloud.
