  • (BT) Advanced Search and Filter

The biggest challenge in DAM is enabling users to find the right asset in the fastest and most convenient way. Successful collaboration is all about speed, ease-of-use and quality of results.

We developed a 2-tier search based on filters & search strings. Filters will limit the set of results, while search text will find the right asset.

Filters and search strings can be saved for later re-use.

Brand new and more granular User Roles have been implemented, allowing for a fine tuned visibility of features and settings.

All with a simple configuration in the Editor. Doc here.

  • (RI) Image Editor watermarking behavior and sealing

We have considered all your feedback and came up with the latest version, v3.12.7, of the Image Editor, greatly improving the stability and functionalities regarding watermarking. Namely: Editor now keeps watermark position when undo then redo, lockScaleToPercentageย property in config allows for scaling the watermark image and preventing users from re-scaling/re-sizing it, using the first URL of watermark's URLs array as the default watermark URL (if no string URL property is provided), now also avoiding the overwriting of watermark's applying switcher styles, scaling box now stays in place if watermark is positioned from watermark's positioning squares, also scaling the watermark to 30% + 1.5% spacing when using watermark positioning squares and watermark's current size is bigger than 30% of edited image, and finally disabled scaling up the watermark image and allowing scaling down with scaling up to the maximum size of the watermark image. Also, we solved an issue with sealing due to a specific configuration.

API Framework

  • (SR) Blurhash Optimisation

Cloudimage automatically calculate blurhash at upload, as a background process. We added an automatic resize step in order to make the blurhash available faster and to allow for the future back-processing of all previously uploaded images. Doc here.

The new Security Template model allows for a more granular management of permissions, for connections via API, and now enable automatic SASS keys expiry so you don't have to revoke them manually once the contributor or API should be done. In summary, it greatly simplifies and improves your access management strategy. Doc here.
