Although this plug-in is for Photoshop and not QuarkXPress, I think it’s worth mentioning:
iStockphoto, the popular resource for royalty-free stock photography, vectors (Illustrator and Flash files, plus blocks of Flash code), video, and audio, now has a plug-in for Photoshop CS5 and higher that lets you search and directly download images within Photoshop.
A one-click “comp replace” feature automatically exchanges comp images with purchased images. The free plug-in also lets you access purchased credits, review past purchases, add to light boxes and almost all of the other standard account management features that can be accessed directly from the iStock site.
