THE DF STUDIO INTERFACE

There’s a lot to say about DF Studio’s interface, but we’ll let it speak for itself: take an inside look into how real users interact with DF Studio every day.

A flexible, agile structure of folders, Projects and Collections helps set every user up for success. Navigation is always a breeze with bookmarks, a recent items menu, and multiple Library perspectives available at the touch of a button. DF Studio enables you to manage your assets on your terms and discover how an organized, uncluttered Library practically runs itself.

Faster, more flexible transfers, featuring drag-and-drop uploading with in-depth customization options to make organization a breeze. An all-new Upload Monitor keeps track of progress and allows targeted uploading to any to any Project or Library folder, configuring Projects and Setups on-the-go.

Efficient, intuitive, image-forward: welcome to online editing, the way it should be. Creating selects is as easy as the push of the button, and that’s just the beginning: DF Studio’s unique editing feature set includes creating, combining and managing edits; smart, data-driven filters; and a dynamic menu of actions that changes based the selection of assets.

Get the largest, clearest preview possible with DF Studio’s 1-Up view. Multiple perspectives in DF Studio ensures that editing goes smoothly and efficiently: view a 1:1 pixel ratio; examine every inch of each picture with DF Studio’s Loupe tool; or compare pictures during the editing process with the DF Studio 2-Up perspective.

Messengers securely deliver any number of files in a matter of seconds – without heavy attachments, bulky hard drives, or tricky FTP servers. There’s a Messenger template for every workflow, from Approvals to downloading to metadata editing, with additional customizations and features available.

Track the status of photo approvals effortlessly with a unique zero-click Approvals interface, which conveniently color codes all assets that have been sent out for approval. More detailed information – such as who approved or killed an asset and when – is readily available from this clean and dynamic view.

Notes brings a powerful suite of communication features together, making it easy to organize ideas within DF Studio teams and collaborate with Messenger recipients. Versatile Visual Annotations allow custom image markups and highlighting to get the point across quickly, while streamlined Conversations keep everyone in the loop.

Building and maintaining a clean, accurate metadata record has never been easier. Whether it’s one file or one thousand, DF Studio’s metadata editor makes the editing process visual, intuitive, and efficient. All changes are written back to the files themselves, making sidecar files and mismatched records things of the past.
