Libris by Photoshelter was just what we were looking for!

Reviewed 5 years ago

Using Libris as our digital asset management system has been a time saver. We are able to upload and share photos in light boxes to clients. We have control over what can be seen and what is archived. Our "best of" photos can be rated with a star. Photos can be tagged so that they are easy to find. This means that the Widener community can go on and easily find the photos that they need.

Pros

We needed to find a way to keep all of our photos safe so we wouldn't lose them in a hard drive crash, flood, or fire, etc. The software does everything that we need it to do— from rating, tagging, storing, and archiving, to sharing light boxes with clients. It is also very affordable.

Cons

At first there was a glitch in the way we wanted to share our photos, but Libris' support services worked with us to overcome that problem.

Reviewed 7 years ago

The FTP service is my favorite hidden gem to the Libris. 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. Being a cloud based system makes it easy for us to transmit, archive or access from anywhere.

Cons

I don't have any thing that I don't like about this product. 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. Libris is build for the professional on the move.

Using Libris have saved our team at Xavier countless hours.

Reviewed 7 years ago

The amount of time we've saved on photo requests is incalculable, whether it's an internal or media request. 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.

It Gets the Job Done Quickly

Reviewed 5 years ago

I came to Libris from a legacy DAM that became very expensive. Libris works better in many respects such as ability to deliver photos anywhere in the world without running my own web site. My clients like it but some of us luddites don't notice when a password is provided because it's at the bottom.

Pros

Super easy to upload photos from Lightroom, with keywords extracted automatically. I can control who gets which files by password or grouped user rights. I can instantly send emails to recipients with links and passwords. Even though it's cloud based it's pretty quick. Client can choose the size file they want to download.

Cons

Inability to search by "filename starts with". The search function is not intuitive in that there is only one box to search keywords and operators are required to try to refine searches. I'd like to be able to resize the visibility and access box. Users can strip the metadata when downloading.

Robust DAM with room for growth

Reviewed 5 years ago

We are in year two of our contract and it has taken us some time to get fully on board using the software. so far, Libris has been a big help as we slowly transition all our files off an old in-house server. We have the opportunity now to review each folder and label it appropriately so we can find our assets quicker in the future.

Pros

Libris has an excellent permissions system. Each collect and gallery can be individually set to be accessible in a few different ways, and then each photo can be set to be expired or rejected.

Cons

There are three different user types: Invited, Contributors, and Library Staff. For our plan you get unlimited Invited users, which only have access to the front end portal and what you decide each user can see, which is fine. Contributors can only upload files--which is a a type we don't really use. Now the last type is called Library Staff and these users are the ones who really hold the power to edit, name, tag files, and set permissions. The problem is that you only get a small number of Library accounts and every additional seat needed is an exorbitant yearly cost on top of the plan cost

Great for the most part but could use some improvement

Reviewed 5 years ago

Visual and tagged searching is great for our department, but often times we have to share a second gallery via Google Drive for off campus/non-users when it would be helpful to send temp links to external consumers once. Our designers cull lightboxes for projects and pull images one at a time, which is a hassle. There should be an option to turn on bulk downloading for registered users.

Pros

Tagging and importing is easy. Setting permissions for groups is helpful and the interface is mostly intuitive and useful. Getting our archive in front of eyeballs is easier now.

Cons

Users are unable to bulk download images. We're a unique case use in which we own all of the images we upload to our account, but still users are unable to download more than one image at a time from a lightbox. Gallery sharing doesn't always work. No option to share outside of our user base without setting up an account for them. Resorting to using a third party service to share files. Price per TB of storage isn't in line with other cloud based providers, nor is there an option to use a third party cloud provider with the interface.

PhotoShelter makes photo management a breeze.

Reviewed 5 years ago

I have started searchable galleries for all of our campus buildings, seasons, classes, etc. The customer services is amazing. Anytime I have emailed with a question, I get an answer within a couple of hours.

Pros

It is easy to use, and easy to customize functions. I can have galleries for public or private viewing, and easily customize who can see and download from each gallery. It is also easy to grant new users access to galleries.

Cons

The cost is higher than I would like, but it still seems to be the most comprehensive and easy to use of the photo management systems of this type.

After testing several competitors, Libris was the easiest to use and nice visually as well.

Reviewed 7 years ago
Pros

Ability to create lots of galleries and collections to organize. I had years of image collection that I personally was keeping organized, but they were all over. I had a fresh opportunity to newly organize images into categories that make more sense, and get rid of duplicates that were taking up a lot of extra space. The ability to add my own metadata is great, though not sure we're going to be able to afford that option next year. I also like that I can give give full or limited access to team members. Sometimes people only need access to logos, or one area of the companies images. Nice to be able to control that.

Cons

Well it's always going to be cost. Especially with add-ons. But we had to bite the bullet and find a safe place for images that can be used and accessed with other co-workers.

Great content library and media storage platform with search functionality and meta tag features

Reviewed 2 years ago

For an enterprise level product based business with over 100,000 unique SKUs, we were in desperate need of a cloud storage solution for thousands of photos, videos, and text deliverables. PhotoShelter is a professional solution at a price point that will meet most agencies or mid-sized companies.

Pros

PhotoShelter does an amazing job of storing thousands of high resolution content files. Activity tracking and workflows aid in project management. The cloud storage solution is fast with efficient search and preview tools.

Cons

PhotoShelter does include some brand management tools but isn't robust enough to be considered a replacement for a true Product Information Manager. Naming conventions and solid standard operating procedures are important to properly upload, label, and tag files. Batch editing or searches without meticulous up front effort is near impossible.

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

Reviewed 6 years ago

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. They are having to download the images first and use Adobe Bridge to connect. It also does not allow designers to drag and drop images when they just want to see how something might look in a quick and easy format unlike other programs.

Works as advertised

Reviewed 5 years ago

When we began to look for a replacement of our previous digital asset management system, we sought to improve work flow for the primary users and find an affordable off-site storage system. We achieved both of those goals with Libris, who were very helpful throughout our search process, which involved stakeholders from numerous departments.

Pros

This software enabled us to offload storage of media from aging on-prem servers, and eased the workflow for the users of that media.

Cons

I am not a fan of their per-user licensing model.

Pros

The ease of use and organization. We are still in the midst of setting it up, but we hope this makes searching our photos so much easier and faster for our department, partners and contributors.

Cons

As a non-profit, the cost was an initial hurdle. We are hoping the time and server space makes up for it! The amount of tagger/admin seats are limiting for us, but other than that we love it.

Reviewed 7 years ago

The ability to store and organize our photos in a single location; the ability for all our staff to view the metadata associated with each photo (and therefore keep track of captions, credit lines etc.); the ability to share our photos easily both with internal staff and external guests; the ability to sell our photos to start compensating the organization for the cost of the service.

Pros

PhotoShelter has helped us organize and share our photos for the first time in our organization's history.

Cons

There are a few quirks with the interface that I would like to see adjusted, but nothing that severely interferes with our workflow.
