Here is a great time-saving tip for both designers and reviewers. When a reviewer makes a suggestion or request on a proof via a comment, the designer can reply to the comment with a URL for the image with the proposed change. This is much faster than opening the original file in your image editor, producing a new image with the proposed changes and uploading it as a new proof version.
Here is an example:
For this proof, a reviewer has requested a change to a design.
1. I open the original file in Photoshop and make the change.
3. I click on the ‘Share via screencast.com’ button to create a shareable URL for the image. Jing automatically adds the URL to your clipboard, ready to paste.
4. I then paste the URL as a reply to the comment.
5. The reviewer clicks on the link and sees what the proposed change will look like.
Using URLs in comments helps shorten the review process and is much more efficient than producing and uploading a whole new file, which can be aggravating if there are only a one or two comments made in the original proof. This process is particularly useful when proofing web pages as it enables the reviewer to see the live page in one window and markup changes in the proof of the page in another window.
