Dropbox brings better image previews for photos and design files to its Web app

Cloud storage service Dropbox is rolling out improved image preview support to its Web app over the next few days. A new preview tool will allow users to zoom and pan and zoom into JPG, PNG, BMP and Photoshop PSD images.

Dropbox says you’ll also be able to view PostScript (.eps) files and see more accurate color matching and higher resolutions in previews of Photoshop (.psd), Illustrator (.ai) and scalable vector graphic (.svg) files in your browser.

In addition, the Web app will bring support for viewing artboards and pages in Illustrator files, so that you can check out entire vector images without having to download them or even have the necessary design software installed on your desktop.

Together with Dropbox’s file commenting system, the update should make it easier for users to collaborate on imaging projects.
