XMPie announced an expansion of uImage 2.0, its variable imaging tool. uImage will now allow users to produce personalized graphics with Adobe Illustrator. Building upon its existing support of Adobe Creative Suite 2, uImage enhanced the design capabilities for variable data publishing to include personalized vector artwork. Users can create a template in Illustrator and automatically merge the illustrations with variable data, resulting in a unique graphic for each recipient. uImage is compatible with uDirect Professional and the entire PersonalEffect product line. Illustrator support will be included as part of all uImage shipments and will be available in summer 2006. Current uImage users under maintenance will receive Illustrator capabilities as a free upgrade.
