Organising Your Digital Assets

Assets themselves are at the heart of any Digital Asset Management system. Just as important is an asset's Metadata, the attributes linked to an asset which make it easy to find.

Assets and Metadata Features

Asset Previews

Asset Bank will automatically generate a suitable preview, whether your asset is an image, video, audio file or a document. For images this includes a 'large image zoom' to allow users to view detail prior to downloading. A watermarks is automatically added to prevent unauthorised use and protect copyright.

Attributes (metadata)

Asset Bank allows you to create additional attribute fields over and abve the default set provided (Title, Description, Keywords, etc.). This gives you the flexability to best describe your data, e.g. adding a 'country' drop down, or 'product ID' field.

Other options include model release forms, star ratings, reviews and collapsible headings that allow you to group data together. All fields can be re-ordered by admin users and some can be highlighted to help draw attention to important information such as image credit.

Interacting with assets

Download

If the user has permission to download without approval, then this option will be present.

Submit Feedback

Optionally allow users to quickly give feedback about an asset to administrators.

Add/Remove from lightbox

Users can add their favourites to personal collections, easily accessible when they next login.

Embed

Allow users to access code to quickly embed an asset onto another site or blog.

View larger preview

Simply click on an image to see a larger preview.

Sharing

If the user has permissions, then they can email an asset from Asset Bank direct to their intended recipient. This works regardless of file size as a link is sent rather than an attachement.

Asset Versioning

Optionally create a new version of an asset when you edit it, with the ability to see previous versions. Useful for uploading new versions of your document assets (e.g. an updated Word doc).
