Using the Saal Digital plug-in in InDesign/Photoshop

With the Saal Digital Plugin, you have the possibility to automatically generate layout templates directly in InDesign or Photoshop and to use them as a basis for your design of our photoproducts.
This allows you to quickly and easily create professional templates with all of the important parameters for production. This includes exact document dimensions, the trimming area, as well as pre-set guidelines for spine and fold area in photobook covers

The plug-in contains templates for the following products:

  • Photobooks
  • Photobook XT
  • Wall Decos
  • Softcover

Alternatively, you can download ready-to-use templates (PSD / ID): for wallpapers and photo book covers or interior pages, but the template is only for a particular format, including page number. You are more flexible with the plug-in.
