Widen Releases Smartimage Version 3.5 Featuring REST API and Usability Improvements

Update to Smart, Simple Image Management Tool Helps Users Organize, Tag, and Batch Download Files Instantly

MADISON, WI--(Marketwired - Feb 18, 2014) - Widen Enterprises announced today the release of Smartimage version 3.5, a solution for simple, cloud-based brand image management. The update features an all new Application Programming Interface (API) and smart, time-saving enhancements like auto-mapping of embedded keyword and description metadata and batch apply tags and descriptions. Other additions include a tag widget, download all functionality, and large image previews.

Smartimage was built as a simple way to centralize and share professional images and other visual content that small businesses and workgroups use every day for marketing communications and brand management.

Version 3.5 features an all new REST API allowing developers to integrate Smartimage with other websites and web applications to take advantage of the ability to upload, manage, and download high-quality graphic files.

Other new features and updates in Smartimage version 3.5 include:

  • Batch apply metadata - Apply tags and descriptions to multiple files at once, upon upload.
  • Auto-mapping keywords and descriptions - Upload files with embedded keywords and descriptions and they are auto-mapped into Smartimage metadata fields.
  • Tag widget - Use tags to filter through your visual content to find the files you need. A search function and sorting enhance the tag experience.
  • Create sections on the fly - Organize your files into custom sections by creating a section during the upload process.
  • Large image previews - Admins see large previews of images to see more detail and enhance the visual experience.
  • Download all - Download an entire collection of files with the click of a button. Choose to download all originals or one of three common file sizes.

"Smartimage is rapidly advancing as a product," said Kara Bubb, Smartimage product manager. "We thrive on receiving feedback from our customers and creating innovative solutions to address those ideas."

The updates allow organizations to quickly centralize and organize their digital media files. Auto-mapping keywords as tags is one example of how Smartimage saves users time organizing image files. With the new tags widget, users can easily search and filter files to find exactly what is needed at a moment's notice.

Smartimage also boasts high-quality graphics support, custom brand spaces, public and private collections, quick sharing, in-depth analytics and Google Analytics integration to deliver a comprehensive brand asset management solution at extremely affordable prices.

In December 2013, the Smartimage 3.0 release included robust digital imaging with dynamic resizing, embeddable thumbnail and carousel galleries and global content delivery network (CDN) using Amazon Cloudfront.

Forthcoming enhancements to Smartimage include a Dropbox integration, upload via email, enhanced searching and additions to batch editing.
