Alex Hong

Fantastic customer support with an easy to navigate product.

2017-08-22

Pros

Being able to tag photos and search by the keyword is essential in a team that is geographically separated and the interface is easy to navigate.

Cons

Files that I am attempting to take from the system and transfer to my computer take a long time even if the file is not very large.

Libris is a very effective tool to manage thousands of digital files and share easily with others.

2017-08-15

Incredibly effective and efficient file management that's so easy to share with others.

Pros

Administrators and editors have to thoroughly learn the nuances of this system, but after a week... it's automatic. Processing files take only a few minutes from start to finish, complete with keywording either while importing the images into Libris or by adding them to images after they're imported.

Cons

You can have taggers, contributors and editors, but the hierarchy is not progressive in that contributors can also be taggers.

Libris is easy to set up and use. My clients really enjoy the ability to search by keyword.

2017-08-18

Ability to share assets with multiple users with different levels of rights and permissions.

Pros

This saves me a lot of time in tagging assets during the uploading process and also allows me to maintain the same file structure.

Cons

I wish I can drag and drop users to group them instead of having to type out the group name under each user.

Libris has helped our department tremendously with sharing images across our campus community.

2017-11-27

We are now able to search edited images through tagged information and able to share and present images in an organized format.

Pros

Searchable tagged photos We are able to share photos quickly with internal and external partners Like being able to customize folders for particular job requests

Cons

The Libris connector really does not give our designers the easy access tools necessary for working with InDesign at a reasonable price.

Wes Funai

Libris has been very easy for us to transition to and very intuitive.

2017-08-14

It also helps us to easily deliver new images to our different brands without using local server space.

Pros

The intuitive interface and the integration with Lightroom make Libirs very desirable.

Cons

The inability to select individuals within a group to email notifications. As we add people to existing groups, we'd like to email just the new person and not the entire group.

My experience has been satisfying. This has made workflow more productive which makes our job easier

2017-08-15

Pros

I like how easy it is to distribute files via a gallery to third party users for viewing or editing.

Cons

What I like least about this software is the price premium for adding editors. If we want to add more people to edit content we have to pay a lot which means upfront its harder to add the amount of editors we may need before we can afford it.

Libris is very easy to use and work through.

2017-08-15

I can spend more time designing now instead of saving files to CDs or Contact Sheets and e-mailing large files.

Pros

Plus the ability to stop clients from downloading and using images incorrectly. The drag and drop feature is extremely useful.

Cons

If there were a way to color code folders and galleries (and maybe there is) I feel it would be easier to organize files at a glance.

Professional Photographer

2017-08-14

Being able to customize the archive and set up search and gallery perimeters for different users is great.

Pros

The ease of use, the built in FTP and the ability to access anywhere.

Cons

The cost is high, but everything that comes packaged into the product proves that the robust design has been well thought out from the user interface to the admin interface.

Amazing product to organize 25+ years of photos

2017-08-16

Pros

My favorite aspects of Libris are the drag and drop capability for seamless file transfers, and the mass-select option to edit or rename a group of photos at once.

Cons

The only downside so far is that there is not facial recognition built into the software, which is something that would be extremely helpful for our archiving process.

Libris has been an excellent solution to our digital asset management!

2017-08-16

Pros

The ability to tag, search and share photos with ease.

Cons

There are still a few glitches in the functionality. Additionally, I wish there was a better way for managing uses, gallery passwords, etc.

Libris has made digital asset management so functional and user friendly for my department

2017-06-27

It's an easier access storage solution for our library of images.

Pros

The multiple ways to search give flexibility to the user and the sharing controls really allow you to be specific with who can access your images.

Cons

I've found it's easier to copy selected images into a new gallery instead and share the gallery link as a way to collaborate, but it's just a half workaround because only the admin can create galleries, whereas invited users can only create light boxes.

Aaron Yoshino

Libris and the LR plugin have become an important part of our daily workflow, with a few caveats.

2017-08-14

Ease of use and user-friendly access for our Art Teams.

Pros

Extreme ease of use, excellent tagging options, relatively responsive website and LR plugin.

Cons

A customizable "home page" or a way to default Admin accounts to redirect automatically to a collection or gallery would be nice when logging into Libris on the web - I would rather login and start at the top of the root folder of our Library vs the default splash page that I get now, as most of the time I login to Libris to fix a tag or confirm I've uploaded files correctly from LR.

Libris has been a dream come true. It's so easy to create tags and share images with customers.

2017-08-18

We've eliminated a lot of duplicate files on our system and been able to transfer our digital assets to the cloud.

Pros

It allows our team to share images with other departments within the organization, and we can customize the size of the file sent and determine how long that user has access to the content.

We have just started moving our archives over to Libris, but it's working well so far!

2017-08-15

Pros

I also really like being able to save photos in two different folders; it makes organizing and finding files easy.

Cons

I'm still trying to understand the search tools. I don't always get the files that I expect to get.

Cumbersome User Experience

2017-08-14

Pros

Ability to comment on photos was also helpful, but the way the comments transferred wasn't always good for the way we were using it.

Cons

Despite keyword search functionality, it still proved difficult to find images we were looking for.

Photoshelter is a powerful digital asset management tool.

2017-08-21

Better storage, speed, and organization of photos.

Pros

One storage place to rule them all, with shared tags, custom tags, unlimited contributors.

Easy to jump in and get started with. Once implemented very user friendly and intuitive.

2017-08-15

Saves my team a great deal of time by improving our ability to search for these images in an efficient manner.

Pros

Ease of uploading the photos and tagging the photos.

Cons

Nothing immediately jumps to mind! It would be great if we could more easily manipulate the order folders (as they default to alpha-numeric ordering), but that feels very nitpicky. All in all, a great product.

Libris has made our photo organization 10x more efficient.

2017-08-16

Pros

It has made my work incredibly more efficient because I am able to quickly search for photos by tags, name, and gallery location, and organize folders to my team's specifications.

Cons

If I had to make one suggestion, I wish the software would automatically apply a cover image to folders to make it easier to differentiate them if we have forgotten to apply a cover image manually.

Libris has been an awesome addition. We love being able to access our archive anywhere

2017-08-15

We do not have to be in the office to access our files and the metadata makes it easy to find what we are looking for!

Pros

The metadata tagging is key for us.

Cons

It would be handy to be able to access, email, download, text, etc.

Using Libris have saved our team at Xavier countless hours.

2017-08-16

Being able to search keywords and names vs. digging through folders is a night and day difference.

Pros

The searchable database is a huge improvement over our previous solution of hosting photos within folders on a university server.

Cons

Would like more storage capacity for a cheaper price in order to store more GIF's, PSD files and videos.
