WoodWing Elvis DAM – v5.15 introduces new ways to customize Elvis DAM

Back in October the team released Elvis DAM v5.15 with several new items that are pretty cool. Those additions and changes include: 

  1. Plugin integration that levels the playing field between the Desktop and Web Clients
  2. A redesigned, brand-enhancing interface for users downloading or reviewing assets via share links

See the blog post here for more information about the changes.

WoodWing Elvis DAM – v5.13 released with watermarking!

WoodWing’s Digital Asset Management tool, Elvis DAM, had a upgrade last week. 

The big feature included in this release is watermarking. 

Watermaking is an essential part of protecting the ownership of your images and in particular is important when making those assets available on Internet. Watermarks can indicate the source of an image, that an image is under ‘embargo’ or prevent the ‘proper’ use of an image until either permission is given or the image is purchased. 

Elvis allows a user to configure the tool so that watermarks show up on ‘shared’ images, all images with the ability to turn off the watermarking based on permissions (such as a status or a tag) or watermarking can just be turned off. 

As you would expect the watermark image can be replaced with your own.

WoodWing Elvis – Brand Portal

Elvis 1

One of the features that I’m pretty excited about within Elvis is the brand portal. The combination of easy setup of the Brand Portal along with the ease of creating rules that allows access to the assets within the portal make for a pretty powerful tool. 

By making the access to assets (or removing access to assets) as simple as setting a metadata field (status: production) to users of the portal the creative staff can spend more time working on amazing new bits of material rather than managing assets, emailing new stuff to users, etc. 

Elvis Cloud even provides ‘view’ and ‘download’ counts for assets that allows a user to see if an asset is actually being used.
