"Switching to Libris was like awakening from a nightmare and realizing it was only a bad dream. Our assets, handsomely displayed, are findable and shareable with minimum effort. As we grow, Libris will grow with us. It's shocking to say, but digital asset management is now fun.
– Phyllis Graber Jensen, director of photography and video at Bates CollegeRead Bates College case study
Same day setup
You can get set up with Libris in no time. No lengthy implementation or need for IT support. Watch a few short How-To Videos and you’re on your way to being a pro. With our cloud-based platform, you and your team can start uploading, organizing and sharing your assets anywhere, anytime. When you migrate your current archive, we ensure that your folder structure and metadata remain intact. If you need help, we’ll be here for you.
High speed uploads
Upload your files in a flash. You can invite an unlimited number of contributors to your account. Photographers using PhotoShelter single user accounts can push their images directly from their accounts to yours. Use the upload method that works best for you, including drag-and-drop, our mobile and desktop apps, FTP or Photo Mechanic and Adobe Lightroom plugins. We don’t set limits on file size or bandwidth. Just fast uploads, every time.
Secure high-speed network
Libris runs on, unlike other solutions that rent their space and are hosted on cloud services like Amazon Web Services. This means we have more control over what we provide you, we’ve tailored our infrastructure to hosting photos and videos, we can guarantee faster and better performance, and we can offer storage at the best prices. We’ve been managing half a billion assets in the cloud for over 12 years. Right now, we manage almost half a billion media assets and our clients are adding more every day. You can be confident your photos and videos are stored and backed up safely across multiple data centers.
Flexible folder structure
Organizing your photos and videos sounds daunting, but with Libris, it’s intuitive and easy. Unlimited collections and galleries allow you to build a nested folder structure that works for everyone on your team. Create and update collections and galleries on the fly, drag and drop assets to move them to different galleries and use virtual copies to make assets available in multiple galleries. Galleries are flexible, so you can mix and match file types within a gallery.
Fast tagging and search
Metadata is the key to finding photos and videos effortlessly. Any assets uploaded to Libris will keep their metadata attached (and when you download from Libris, it’s still there!). You can easily review EXIF and IPTC Metadata in your library. You can also add and edit metadata to one asset or in bulk. Create Custom Metadata fields and tags to simplify how you add and search for the keywords you use all the time.
Advanced permissions settings
You are in control. Set permissions so only the appropriate people can see and download your photos and videos. You can keep everything private, make everything public, or strike a balance between the two. Set a password or grant access to specific people or groups so your regular users can find what they need on their own. Simple stoplight icons let you see permissions settings at a glance. With unlimited invited users, you can streamline your processes and deliver content to everyone who needs it.
A sleek branded portal
A customizable public portal means you can deliver assets in a clean, branded way. Update your portal’s URL, customize your navbar tabs, change your homepage image and add your logo and colors for a consistent brand experience. Users can preview photos and videos before they download them, and download the size they need all on their own as we create multiple resized JPEG and MP4 versions of your media when you upload them.
Easily share photos and videos, no matter the file size or format. Invite users to view and download assets from your portal so they can find what they need when they need it, without having to ask for help. Or, use the Quick Send feature or outgoing FTP to send a file or group of files in seconds. No more need for separate transfer tools. When you’re working with other teams or partners who also use Libris, you can push assets right into their accounts.
Powerful search and download
With accurate keyword-based search, your team can quickly find and use the best photos and videos. Refine a search based on advanced criteria including date range, location and orientation, or use hyperlinked keywords to do a deep dive search and explore other assets with related keywords. When a user finds the perfect photo or video, they can download the file size that fits their needs.
Your photos and videos are valuable - don’t let them fall into the wrong hands. Add text or image watermarks to your photos on the portal so your branding and/or copyright information is publicly visible, preventing misuse. Image theft-guard prevents people from right clicking to save an image and disables dragging and dropping from the portal. Set limits to restrict how many files a single user can download and use reports to track who has downloaded assets from your library.
"I can’t really see how I could do this without Libris. It’s been great to have a really concentrated library that looks pretty enough but is functional."

Turnkey revenue generation
Selling your images can be a great way to generate additional revenue from work you’re already doing. Libris includes a simple turnkey e-commerce solution (the only NCAA compliant image sales solution). Just set up your preferred payment processor, pick a printing vendor, determine your pricing, and fulfillment is all set. E-commerce is hands-free, so you don't have to manage printing or delivery.
Single sign on and open API integration
Libris integrates seamlessly with your existing systems. It’s easy to implement Single Sign On (industry standard SAML protocol) using our documentation and support so you can simplify how you manage permissions access for your internal stakeholders. You can even integrate the Libris visual asset management workflow into your existing processes and software, using our Open API. Learn more on our Developer Portal.
“Libris has been phenomenal in helping us get images from our Championships into the hands of our constituents quickly and efficiently. We are better prepared to share our student-athletes’ stories, and to control and organize our history.”
