Web-Designer-and-the-Creative-Workflow

Maximize creative workflow

Here’s Jayden, a web designer at the global company. She wants to update the product page on their website and design a sales aid that showcases their new images, so she uses the DAM system to find a range of images and videos for her layouts.

  • Leverage creative integrations like WordPress and InDesign
  • Track versions and changes to master assets
  • Automatically update digital assets with dynamic resizing and
    embed codes

Upload, edit and share with ease

This is Kevin. He’s the Marketing Coordinator and DAM administrator at the company. He manages the company’s Media Collective site, and uploads new images to the DAM system, then edits and releases them. He can also add approved product images to a collection for remote access by users with no login needed. An email alert notifies the different user groups that the portal is ready to show, share, and download images.

  • Upload via drag & drop, upload wizard, or upload pane
  • Batch upload and apply or edit metadata
  • Set release dates and approvals
  • Share digital assets via links, embed codes, and collections
