Elvis DAM version 6.35 has been released!
We’ve got some some nice changes:
- Pro client: Manually linking files.
- Elvis REST API try-out page (BETA).
- Elvis InDesign plug-in: disabling the automatic linking of images when opening a layout.
The first item is a feature that allows you to manually create a relationship between File A and File B by dragging File A onto File B in the client. Note that Elvis auto generates relationships as well such as creating relationships when you create a variant or drag an asset over to a InDesign layout.
The second item is really nice if you are developing an integration between Elvis and a tool like a PIM. Instead of using a tool like ‘Postman’ you can use the try-out page to see if the query is returning the items you are expecting.

Back in October the team released Elvis DAM v5.15 with several new items that are pretty cool. Those additions and changes include:
- Plugin integration that levels the playing field between the Desktop and Web Clients
- 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’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.
