An image library is a collection of digital assets that may contain other forms of rich media such as presentations, PDF documents, sound files, video files and more. Therefore, an ‘image library’ is better known as digital asset management (DAM).
Digital asset management (DAM) is a comprehensive solution for storing and sharing your images, videos, music and other digital media files. DAM gives users the ability to administer their digital assets in a more organized way and makes sharing assets easier and safer.
Remove confusion by giving all your users a central content library
Search for content quickly with easy-to-use tags, keywords, folders and albums
Simplify file sharing with collections, download links and branded self-serve
Cloud-based digital asset management lets you access your assets using any device from anywhere at any time. Unlike file-share solutions like Dropbox, digital asset management functions as a more complete image library that enables companies to improve their ability to store, search and share imagery at scale.
The beauty of using digital asset management to manage your image library is the added benefit of managing digital copyright licenses. Setting expiration dates, adding watermarks and defining copyright terms and conditions can keep your company protected from legal action and help users stay in compliance.
