What’s New in version 1.1.0
We have been listening to your feedback and trying to make Adobe Design to Print more powerful.
In version 1.1.0, we added these new features:

Object Level Upload:

Adobe Design to Print now supports publishing multiple images (objects) per artboard to Zazzle website. Till 1.0 release, each artboard of Product used to get flattened and published as a single image to Zazzle. With Object Level Upload, each root level group of the artboard can be published as a separate Image or object. This will provide the enhanced flexibility to designers of complex designs.

Notes: •
• •

The document needs to be Conforming to be published as ‘Object Level Upload’. This means that all the layers must lie within some group. Each such group will be flattened (all the sub-groups & layers inside it will be merged together) and uploaded as an object to the Zazzle website. If there is any layer that does not exist inside any group, then the document will be treated as NonConforming and Object Level Upload mode will not be available. Object Level Upload is optional, and you can still go ahead, publish as existing Flattened Upload mode.

How it works: • After completing the design in Photoshop, when you click on ‘Publish’ button, the document is checked if it is Conforming or not. o If the document is found to be Non-Conforming, it goes ahead with publish as Flattened Upload mode (all the layers of an artboard will be merged and uploaded as single image). This is the same behavior as version 1.0.
o If the document is found to be Conforming, a pop-up is shown asking if you want to use ‘Object
Upload Mode’ or the usual ‘Flattened Upload mode’.

o After selecting ‘Object Level Upload’, each of the group is published as a separate image to Zazzle. o

Limitations: • Inter-group interactions (some effects/adjustments/filters applied inside a group, that will affect the other groups/layers outside that group also) need to be avoided. Adjustments, blend modes, filters etc. can cause this. • If such Inter-group interactions exist in a conforming document & that is published as ‘Object Level Upload’, the published image on Zazzle website might look different than the original artwork and the preview inside Design To Print Plug-in. • Inter-group interactions can be avoided by using masks to restrict the interactions with lower layers. • If a root level group contains only adjustment layers, it will not be published. • If some adjustment is applied on a group, then the adjustment layer & the group need to be inside some root level group for the document to be conforming.

Configurable Auto-Update & Manual Refresh:
While designing the product, if you don’t want the preview to be updated for each of the change in artboard, Adobe Design To Print now provides the option to turn ‘Auto-Update’ Off along-with a ‘Manual Refresh’ option.
When Auto-Update is turned off, clicking the ‘Refresh’ button will refresh the preview and make it reflect current state of the artboard. This Auto-Update can be kept On (default behavior) and ‘Adobe Design To Print’ will work as usual, updating the preview for every change made in the design.
