New Settings Experience, Same Great Brandfolder
Over the past year, we have added many robust capabilities to customize and manage users, privacy, and asset data. Our engineering teams have consolidated all settings and tools into a new single, easy-to-navigate location. To keep Brandfolder as intuitive as possible, users can find what they need faster, with a dedicated home for future capabilities and admin tools.
Improved Asset Permissons
This new feature enables admins to select one or more assets and set them as ‘view only’ to manage whether or not other users can download these assets. This added control is great for teams who want to give stakeholders, partners or vendors access to their content without giving them the ability to make changes. It's also a convenient way to manage user permissions and provide view-only access to an archive of content for reference or historical purposes.
Enhanced Brand Intelligence
Brandfolder has improved core AI capabilities to deepen data enrichment features such as logo detection and auto-tagging. This increased accuracy and precision allows users to protect against unauthorized use of brand logos, track branded content in greater detail, and deliver refined insights as it relates to brand exposure across digital assets.

Custom Template Approvals

This ensures that all marketing content meets brand guidelines and maintains brand integrity. And since the approvals process is automated, it saves time and hassle for everyone involved.
Update Comment Permissions
This update enables comments and annotations to only display on the Brandfolder, Collection, or Share Links that they were created in for better visibility and information management. This enhancement gives you more control over the information displayed on your assets and helps keep things organized.

Store, View, and Share 3D Assets
3D files are one of the fastest-growing file types. We’ve integrated with RapidCompact to embed 3D support in Brandfolder. This will offer users a simple way to add 3D assets to Brandfolder, preview and rotate assets, create preset and customizable optimizations of 3D models for multiple platforms and easily share them with partners or guests.

Multi Language Assets
Brandfolder is now more global ready than ever! Editable users (collaborators, admins, and owners) can now easily add and edit asset names, descriptions, tags, and custom fields in multiple languages. Consumers of a Brandfolder (i.e. guest and non-users) can then read asset details in their preferred language with a toggle in their View Options.<br/><br/> Available languages are configured in the admin settings. Then asset details in multiple languages can be edited at the individual asset level, to many assets at once with the bulk toolbar, or in batch mode with CSV Metasheets.
Download CSV Metasheets
Making bulk edits to metadata in Brandfolder is easy. With CSV Metasheets, admins and collaborators can easily select multiple assets in a Brandfolder and download them into a CSV file to make edits to tags, custom fields, asset names, and descriptions en masse.
We've made our Webhooks more robust with improved documentation for our API users. Webhooks enable monitoring your Brandfolder for change events such as creation of new assets, edits of existing assets, and deletion of assets. Webhooks can be used to seamlessly keep your other systems that are integrated with Brandfolder updated and in sync.
CMYK to RGB (and vice versa)
Brandfolder now allows non-designers to convert asset colors from CMYK to RGB and vice versa. The CMYK <> RGB feature helps eliminate asset requests for your designers. It also improves productivity for all users by not having to wait on a designer to download an asset, convert to a different color profile in complicated software, and reupload the asset for specific channel color specifications.
FTP Ingest workflow
With our new FTP Ingest workflow, users are able to quickly ingest large file sizes, and large quantities, from an FTP server directly into Brandfolder. Admins can set up FTP connections from the bulk management section of a Brandfolder, and then set up rules to automate the flow of where assets should be placed upon ingestion – like Brandfolders, Collections, and Sections. This workflow helps speed up and automate the ingestion process. For example, a photographer can shoot images and automatically upload assets from their camera, to Brandfolder, on the fly.
New: Request Download workflow
With the Request Download feature, admins can create share links where downloading assets is disallowed until the user requests access. When Request Download is required, users are prompted to fill out a form, and the form then notifies the admin to the download request. Admins can either approve or deny the asset download request with reasoning as to why. This new Request Download workflow helps automate the process of approvals and ensures all assets being downloaded are not only approved, but also on-brand.
Convert metadata into custom fields or tags
With the new Metadata Conversions feature, admins can set up rules to convert embedded and extracted metadata fields into Custom Fields or auto-tags. This helps automate the searchability of metadata and optimizes the ongoing management of your Brandfolder over time. These conversions apply to not only existing assets, but can also be retroactively applied.
'My Favorites' now 'My Boards'
Previously known as My Favorites, individual users can now gather groups of assets into Asset Boards, otherwise known as "My Boards." Boards allow for efficient organizing and super quick access to favorited assets from different Organizations, Brandfolders, and Collections. Select the desired assets, click 'Add to: My Boards' within the bulk action bar, and locate those assets within the profile section of your Brandfolder.
New View Options
Users can now toggle between different view options for how they want assets to be displayed within a Brandfolder. View options are, also, unique to the individual, as well as different Brandfolders and Collections. Different view options include: - Thumbnail or list view - Sort by - Assets per section - Show custom fields - Hide empty sections
Print contact sheet
With contact sheets, users can now preview multiple assets in a clean layout view before printing. Contact sheets are a common need for photographers or editors trying to easily print multiple assets, while stripping away away extra headings, text, and unnecessary shading.
Prioritize your Custom Fields
Now, Brandfolder admins with a lot of custom fields can select up to 5 to be prioritized or highlighted for their users in the bulk management section of Brandfolder. Prioritized custom fields are displayed at the top of all custom fields listed for an asset within its modal, as well as on the thumbnail version if selected "show custom fields" in our new "View Options" button.
Comments & Annotations for enhanced workflow
Now, admins and collaborators can improve their efficiency by collaborating on assets directly within the Brandfolder platform. Instead of manually switching between tools, comment and annotate on the asset itself to save time. And, Brandfolder customers can take advantage of the rest of our suite of workflow features for better collaboration–features like our Advanced Adobe Creative Suite intregation, approvals, notifications, and version timelines.
