PhotoShelter for Brands transforms how creative people work.

About PhotoShelter for Brands

PhotoShelter for Brands is a cloud-based digital asset management (DAM) system for organizations that require storage, management, and distribution solutions for image and video libraries of all sizes. PhotoShelter for Brands empowers over 1,200 brands of all sizes from industries like Education, Sports, Travel, CPG, Media, and Retail.

The need in an organization is to move creative files from point A to point B instantly. The solution is divided into two portals: an admin portal, where an organization’s staff can upload and manage assets, and a user portal, where the general public or invited users can access and download from an organization’s media library.

As media is uploaded, PhotoShelter for Brands automatically screens and extracts keywords, tags, descriptions, and licensing metadata from each file. Users, as well as third parties, can upload thousands of files in a single day using drag and drop, or the website's uploader. Custom user roles can be set to provide appropriate access and permissions to stakeholders, groups, or individuals. Several integrations such as Hootsuite, WordPress and Slack can be added to simplify the workflow even further.

Organizations can share assets not only through the PhotoShelter for Brands portal galleries, but also via the ‘quick send’ feature from the admin portal, upload to FTP servers, or simply weave public images and video directly into marketing channels and social media.

Organizations can add an unlimited number of invited users to their portal, as well as group and view lists of registered users.

Overall we are very satisfied with Libris.

Overall we are very satisfied with Libris.

Pros

The software is extremely easy to use and manage. It was the perfect solution for our photo archive and has proven to be an efficient method of delivering video and photos to end users.

Cons

At times we have difficulties sharing lightboxes with other people, but I think that is more user error.

We are in year two of our contract and it has taken us some time to get fully on board using the software. so far, Libris has been a big help as we slowly transition all our files off an old in-house server. We have the opportunity now to review each folder and label it appropriately so we can find our assets quicker in the future.

Pros

Libris has an excellent permissions system. Each collect and gallery can be individually set to be accessible in a few different ways, and then each photo can be set to be expired or rejected.

Cons

There are three different user types: Invited, Contributors, and Library Staff. For our plan you get unlimited Invited users, which only have access to the front end portal and what you decide each user can see, which is fine. Contributors can only upload files--which is a a type we don't really use.

Now the last type is called Library Staff and these users are the ones who really hold the power to edit, name, tag files, and set permissions. The problem is that you only get a small number of Library accounts and every additional seat needed is an exorbitant yearly cost on top of the plan cost

I came to Libris from a legacy DAM that became very expensive. Libris works better in many respects such as ability to deliver photos anywhere in the world without running my own web site. My clients like it but some of us luddites don't notice when a password is provided because it's at the bottom.

Pros

Super easy to upload photos from Lightroom, with keywords extracted automatically. I can control who gets which files by password or grouped user rights. I can instantly send emails to recipients with links and passwords. Even though it's cloud based it's pretty quick. Client can choose the size file they want to download.

Cons

Inability to search by "filename starts with". The search function is not intuitive in that there is only one box to search keywords and operators are required to try to refine searches. I'd like to be able to resize the visibility and access box. Users can strip the metadata when downloading.

Setting up our site was relatively painless and we're just populating our library now so that we can launch our organization image repository int he near future.

Pros

Great ability to connect with Adobe products. Lots of tagging and organization options. The front end is attractive and easy to use for users.

Cons

Setting permissions is a bit cryptic, especially if you're using it as a DAM and not as a storefront for a photography business. Only having 2 included library seats is troublesome when using as an enterprise app.

Libris Review

Reviewed on 13/08/2019

Pros

I really like how detailed you can be when doing a search for images. Overall it's a nice streamlined system, but I think there is always an opportunity for improvement.

Cons

If you use this system on a daily bases it works well and fairly easy to navigate, but new users seem to struggle. It also feels like there are too many steps sometimes.
