With the FotoWare DAM system, anyone can store, search, find, share and reuse their images, graphics and videos. We have compiled the most important functions for you in our product tour:
Organize files efficiently
There are two principles for the FotoWare search feature:
First, all properties of your assets are searched: whether EXIF camera data, keywords, standard file properties - every information stored in the metadata is available as a search criterion.
Second, every search will search all assets, and will search across the entire media inventory.
Search result guaranteed!
When importing you can keep your usual folder structure - so all users feel right at home.
You have saved all pictures chronologically after years on your hard disk. After importing into the FotoWare DAM, you can access your folder structure and the files contained in it as usual.
Regardless of the folders, the so-called archives constitute another freely definable means of regulation. In contrast to the folders, an asset can belong to several archives and carry a wide variety of keywords.
A picture of your boss with the new product at the last trade fair may appear, for example, under the headings "People", "Events" and "Product Catalog".
Powerful taxonomies make it easy for users to find what they need through multiple filters. From the point of view of the one who tagged, the taxonomies are an indispensable tool to ensure consistent tagging.
SmartFolders are like virtual folders that return hits based on the search criteria that you associate with the smartfolder. Combine various search criteria, such as technical properties or metadata criteria, to offer your users the search structures they can understand.
With advanced search, you can use special criteria such as file properties or file types to narrow down your results and get the search results you want quickly.
It does not work without metadata . Therefore, FotoWare has simplified the metadata handling as far as possible: automatic reading, comfortable editing and automatic reworking through preconfigured actions minimize the required maintenance effort.
Even if there is little or no metadata in your file inventory - no problem: Full-text search makes your PDFs, Office documents and vector graphics fully searchable..
Use your files everywhere
FotoWare puts an end to the separation of media research and media use. The FotoWare plug-ins make the use of the DAM system an integral part of your standard programs.
In the CMS
FotoWare works perfectly with content management systems (eg WordPress, Joomla, eZ Publishing, EPiServer, TYPO3 or others). Access is directly from the application and the media files can be integrated into the article with just a few clicks.
You can even add publication periods to the picture you're using when you're involved.
Your employees can insert images and graphics in an appropriate resolution directly into their PowerPoint presentation or Word document. FotoWare adjusts the size, resolution and color space of the photos automatically, so that the integration takes place in the best possible quality. The plugin also ensures that only approved and properly licensed assets are used.
in Adobe InDesign
The Adobe Creative Suite comes with powerful Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign plugins. The use is very intuitive. They stay in your application and have full access to FotoWare's search capabilities. Optionally, use file formats in original resolution or request real-time format variants to place in booklets, books and other print materials.
Mobile and Tablet Apps
On road? With the FotoWare apps for iPhone, iPad and Android as well as the web interface for Windows Phone you have access to your assets everywhere.
If required, administrators can approve and decline content on their mobile app or on an app developed specifically for the iPad..
Create workflows and automations
Order and send
Not always the direct download of an asset is desired. Image rights and the use corresponding to the communication strategy must be clarified. Via the shopping cart the user can select assets and apply for use. For this purpose, for example, the intended use can be queried via a form. The responsible power users can then check and approve the order if use is permitted.
Always do the same thing? Create actions that automate these processes.
Markers are icons on your assets that give the user a visual quick-fix. In addition, you can create clickable, interactive markers, for example, to edit the metadata of the asset, trigger a WebHook or additionally query information from your PIM.
Generate standardized file output for your assets with predefined profiles.
Using integration platforms such as Zapier, you can integrate your FotoWare DAM system with a wide variety of web applications. Whether CRM, email marketing solution or social media platforms all of these target platforms can benefit from your FotoWeb assets.
Store your assets in multiple archives and search all at the same time. This allows you to logically group data for your users.
With the FotoWeb RESTful Hypermedia API, developers can create the most diverse integrations.
Share and collaborate
Make an individual selection of files and add them to an album. Then you can easily share them with others via email or link. You define who has the rights to download or view the assets.
Directly through the application, you can invite colleagues, partners or anyone else to use the FotoWeb. The permissions of each user of course set you.
All images that you publish on your website, for example, are shown in the overview. If an image should or should not be used, it is deactivated with one click.
If needed, use the integrated comment function to communicate in a team.
Share content with your team and third parties by sending them "permanent links" to your content.
Preview of any file type
With the zoom function you can check your files down to the single pixel - on the fly.
Looking for something in particular? Just flip through your document to find what you need.
Quickly and easily review the content of your videos using keyframe navigation. The keyframe is displayed as an image, clicking on a keyframe takes you directly to the corresponding position in the video.
FotoWeb is made for professional color management through and through. No matter what color space you work in or which ICC profile your printing service provider needs, the system does not change anything you do not want and provides what you or your partners need.
User management made easy
The self-service function at login saves you a lot of time by allowing users to register themselves at the FotoWare DAM. Of course, you can also enable manual approval for better control when needed.
Sounds complicated, but it is not. You sit down at your computer and the FotoWeb is ready for you.
By supporting SSO with Azure AD, SAML2, OneLogin, Active Directory and more, you can forget your password and will always automatically log in to the system.
