Dear Hanne,

Thanks for the great overview of your use of Third Light. Integrating IMS with your CMS solution is a perfect way to make the most of the graphics engine (as well as being pretty simple to do with the Javascript plugin). I wish you good luck bringing DAM to more of your clients, and thank you for your detailed and interesting review!

Thirdlight review

2020-06-03

Pros

The software has changed the way our marketing team use images and has made everyones lives a lot easier.

Cons

As there's different ways you can set up the software it'd be good to see more examples of how industries are using it. When I first set up our image library I put spaces within spaces and it made things very confusing with permissions further down the line, I've since changed the spaces within the spaces into folders.

Eric, this is such a generous and kind review, thank you. I am so pleased with how it's working out for you at Historic Images - that is one giant installation! Knowing it is as fast as you hoped now you're over the million assets is exactly what we designed IMS for - in fact, don't worry, it'll be good for tens of millions and beyond!

Our support guys are grateful for your comments. They get very close to the action and I can see this has been a great experience all round - so pleasing to hear!

Good luck to you and thank you again for this wholehearted endorsement of Third Light's design and service culture - it means the world to us.

Great tool for a communication team

2020-03-13

The growing number of pictures, publications needing pictures and persons using them make the use of Thirdlight mandatory. In minutes a picture or an album can be offered to everyone or remove from the bank if there's a problem about model release or anything else.

Pros

The new interface is really user-friendly

Cons

As our institution is french speaking, a site that can be adapted to other languages would be a benefit for us.
