globaledit launches new digital asset management platform

globaledit introduced the next generation of its Digital Asset Management platform The release includes new capabilities that enable creative teams to collaborate, communicate and execute.

Watermarks: globaledit customers now have an improved watermarking process which permits additions of watermarks to all of their creative assets based on specific customizations such as size, opacity, logos, usernames, and even patterns of the watermarks. Once set up it can be assigned based on collection or folder requirements as well.

Approvals: Our approval gallery setup will allow talent and their agents to “Approve” or “Kill” assets based on their contractual obligations in a user-friendly manner. In addition to that, the studio officials can monitor and manage a report of all the galleries in progress and edit as and when appropriate.

Contact Sheet: In this release, you can expect contact sheets to function as a PDF of your folder/collection/search results. Users like Producers, Marketers, Retail Display Managers will be able to create a PDF without using any external tools that fit the assets into a page format.

Collections: Users can now organize and manage their collections based on which are active, expired or archived. In addition, they can group their collections based on needs and expiration dates. Lastly, users can now invite others to a newly made collection without the need for setting up library access.

Metadata: globaledit has made it easy for users to update and export metadata in and out of the application in bulk. This is particularly useful when data is coming in and out from third parties and want to ensure the latest information is captured in globaledit, including small variations in the CSV and XMP creation. It is an exifTool-friendly format, a standard tool in the photography workflow.

Adobe announces end of PhoneGap development

Adobe announced the end of development for PhoneGap and PhoneGap Build and the end of their investment in Apache Cordova. The PhoneGap Build service will be discontinued on October 1, 2020. PhoneGap’s goal has been to bring the full power of the web to mobile applications and enable mobile developers to create performant apps with a single codebase. Since the project’s beginning in 2008, the market has evolved and Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) now bring the power of native apps to web applications. PWAs are increasingly bridging the gap between web and native mobile apps through capabilities such as offline support, push notifications, home-screen icons and full-screen view control without the need for containers. In the context of these developments and declining PhoneGap usage, Adobe is focusing on providing a platform that enables developers to build, extend, customize and integrate with Adobe products.

Apache Cordova, the open source fork of the PhoneGap project will continue to exist and offers a great pathway for most developers. Refer to the Cordova getting started guide for building locally as an alternative to PhoneGap Build and using Cordova-based tools as an alternative to the PhoneGap-specific workflows. Adobe has worked with Ionic to help customers with the transition experience and to enable them to continue to build their applications in the cloud. Refer to this documentation for best practices on moving your application to Ionic Appflow. There are also a number of alternative products to which you may want to consider migrating your PhoneGap app including:
