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.
