About Job Request Files and other XML formats

JRFs are Job Request Files, plain ASCII-format instruction files that any third-party application can generate and drop into a Color Factory channel's input to have it pick up a file and process it before storing it in a designated folder. This allows any third-party app to use the processing power in Color Factory to, for example, crop, resize or color process pictures used in an editorial system.

This guide deals with the Job Request File specification to help you connect a third-party system to a Fotoware system.

If you're interested in how to configure Color Factory to use Job request files or XML formats, the reference guide deals with that topic.
