Portfolio 2017 includes the following enhancements:

Desktop client with drag and drop

Conveniently drag and drop files between Portfolio and your creative apps, folders, and desktop.

Rights Management

Quickly understand the usage rights associated with your assets, remove workflow bottlenecks, and prevent copyright violations with the FADEL Rights Cloud™ Connector for Portfolio.

Infinite Scroll

No more clicking through hundreds of pages of assets in your main window. Now you can smoothly scroll through your entire asset collection to find what you’re looking for.

Advanced Smart Keywords Control

Save time and improve asset discovery by automatically associating keywords to images with enhanced Smart Keywords functionality:

  • Select from specialized category engines including food, travel, wedding, “Not Safe for Work,” and celebrities.
  • Enable Smart Keywords per catalog.
  • Choose to add keywords from multiple languages.
  • Adjust the desired confidence level and number of results returned. A higher-set confidence level will deliver fewer but more relevant keywords.

Compress a raw image to 1/20 of its size with no noticeable change to the human eye. True lossless compression, which reduces files size by an average of 30%, is also supported. Powerful zoom and dynamic panning technology lets you see the fine details of your high-resolution assets, even in preview mode!
