As a designer, it is quick and easy to create proofs directly from within Adobe Photoshop and send them out to a PageProof workflow. Then, when a to-do list has been returned, bring the comments back into Photoshop with the corresponding pins and markup displayed over your artwork file. Firstly make sure you have installed the PageProof plugin for Adobe Photoshop, then follow these simple instructions:

To bring comments back into Adobe Photoshop

Step 1

Open your artwork file.

Step 2

In the PageProof plugin, click inbox to see proofs that have been returned with a to-do list. Proofs that have been returned are indicated in green and will display a comments icon.

Step 3
