What's new in Portfolio 8.5.2
Preview file optimization
When Portfolio creates preview files of cataloged images, the previews are now organized into a subfolder hierarchy within the preview directory. This organization helps speed the cataloging and access of images. Due to this change, all versions of Portfolio that are used to connect and access assets in Portfolio catalogs must be Portfolio 8.5.2 or greater. Using any earlier client or server can result in missing preview files.
Save Catalog Types
Portfolio can now save custom Catalog Types, using the current catalog's settings.
Collect for Output improvements
When collecting files for output, Portfolio checks for any missing original files before collecting the files. If there are any missing files, Portfolio only warns you once before proceeding. At the end of the collection process, any missing files are displayed in a scratchpad gallery so that you are able to locate the original files.
Improved XMP metadata support
Portfolio has been updated to use the Adobe® XMP Toolkit v4.1.1, offering improvements for both extracting and embedding XMP metadata.
Support for new digital camera Raw formats
The newly supported camera Raw formats include:
