I have developed plugins for illustrator in the past for internal use in my company.
Now I plan to create a product that has to interact with AI and PSD files (analyzing them, changing them etc...)
I appreciate if anyone can refer me to legal procedure of selling a plugin for illustrator/photoshop. Is it allowed and under what terms?
Secondly, is there any possibility to use SDK without craeting a pllugin? Namely, is there an sdk that allows to read and analyze AI files, and create AI files, without the need to create a plugin?
Thanks a bunch!
Yes, you can sell plugins built using the Adobe SDKs. As long as all the code apart from the SDK is your own there should be no problem.
No, there is no external SDK that can be used with stand alone programs.
