    Pros

    I feature where you can share galleries with specific people by email is very nice. Although the interface for it could be better.

    Cons

    The interface is the most inefficient. I would love it if more things were accessible with fewer clicks (ie key shortcuts or a right click mouse menu). The gallery pages refresh constantly without warning which makes me lose the selections I have on images.

    Pros

    This software allows you to catalog large quantities of photography and for and additional fee video. The ability for others to view and request photography is great.

    Cons

    Unless you are selling your photography, and even if you are, there are likely much more economically solutions to your needs. We continue to use it due to an agreement we have, but likely would not choose this again if we needed a new solution.

    This software has helped me to organize my photo gallery and also all my work in an efficient way

    Pros

    I think this software is ideal for organizing photos, it's very easy to use for all users and has many excellent options. I can also share other types of files like as documents or videos without size limit.

    Cons

    First, Its price is high and second, sometimes it can be a bit confusing for any users. Especially when they want to download files, I think it should be a little easier.

    Great for sharing and adding to photo albums that I share with my friends and colleagues!

    Pros

    I like how easy to use the platform is. Its ease of use allows others to use and upload additional content to the albums that I share with them.

    Cons

    The pricing can be a bit off-putting to some, but it wasn't too bad for when I started using the platform.

    If all you want is a software to hold images on, this is great. It does not have any dynamic features.

    Pros

    I like the ability to upload a mass amount of videos. Most softwares have a cap, but Libris Photoshelter does not. I also like the customization that you are given to order your images in each gallery.

    Cons

    I do not like that you cannot customize the orders of the collections. They appear alphabetically which is not the most successful strategy for our brand.

    We are now able to search edited images through tagged information and able to share and present images in an organized format.

    Pros

    Searchable tagged photos
    We are able to share photos quickly with internal and external partners
    Like being able to customize folders for particular job requests

    Cons

    The Libris connector really does not give our designers the easy access tools necessary for working with InDesign at a reasonable price. They are having to download the images first and use Adobe Bridge to connect. It also does not allow designers to drag and drop images when they just want to see how something might look in a quick and easy format unlike other programs.

    My job is much easier, simple as that. It aids myself, but more importantly, aids our front office to access our digital archive in a much quicker and timely manner, especially when away from the office setting.

    Pros

    The ability to have our entire archive accessible 24/7 through a website and the ease of use in sending photos at any time of the day. Our front office is using photos in a more timely manner and the search function has aided their endeavor for photos rather that our previous method of going through folder-by-folder on a server.

    Cons

    That there is no app available yet for mobile devices. Working in sports and the need for immediate access to photos, a mobile app is almost a necessity. Once an app is created, that will immensely help our workflow as a team.

    Pros

    Photoshelter has a great navigation structure that enables you to easily sort, navigate, and find the exact assets you're looking for. We can customize how we archive our photos, which is a huge help. The search function has numerous options that allow you to be as broad or specific as you desire. Additionally, the capabilities to limit who can see which photo sets and to track who downloads what provides brand security.

    Cons

    Preview images can take a while to load, although I'm not sure if that originates on with our IT infrastructure of Photoshelter's. Additionally, unless you are using an iMac, the metadata and gallery panels take up a substantial portion of your screen, limiting how many photos you can view at a time.

    Pros

    It allows us to be as organized to the highest degree. Which is something that we need. I haven't fully experienced everything about Libris, but I am certainly looking forward to using going on. It also makes it easier for me to get photos from the photographers when they are out of the office, (more than likely shooting something new). But it allows me access without them having to essentially hand deliver me photos to use.

    Cons

    Sometimes the organization can be a hindrance. Having to go through extra steps just because of how organized it is. I'm not a huge fan of having to given permission to everything. I had a problem that every time I needed to get something I had to be given permissions or something. EVERY TIME i tried to get a file. But that was corrected.

    The creation of a Digital Library has allowed us to modernize and organize our digital assets, turning more than 125 years of history out of file folders and onto the web. The ability for researchers, alumni, fans, family and friends to find information that otherwise be hidden away will and has been a major advancement for our program.

    Pros

    Libris and Photoshelter's outward facing interface allowed for the creation of the Cornell Athletics Digital Library, allowing alumni, friends and fans access to this digital repository of Big Red history. Photos can be viewed for free or purchased for posterity. Video clips, game stories, newspaper clippings and more will be available for viewing and downloading.

    It is both easy to navigate on the front end and simple to manage and search on the back end. it's upload and download time and quick send options also allow us to easily manage our media relations functions.

    Cons

    Batch downloading can sometimes be a challenge when needing things between nested folders, but that's a user problem. Software really has everything we need.

    It is very user-friendly and takes organization to a whole new level. It is so easy to go in and locate archived photos or videos in just a few simple clicks! There is no other software like it on the market.

    Cons

    There are very few cons when it comes to Libris. The only thing I can think of off the top of my head is that it is a little bland and slightly interface, although not sure how much they can liven it up without sacrificing the software's efficiency.

    ORGANIZED Photo archive for large campus. Easily share photos with team

    Pros

    I love that I can easily create folders and upload photos to share with members of our team here on campus. I love that Libris is user friendly and has amazing customer support.

    Cons

    One thing that I would like to have added is an easier way to share photos with those who do NOT have a Libris acct. When I send out a link to photos outside of our team some have a hard time access with the password etc...

    A more simplified digital asset management process with over 100,000 assets without being completely overwhelmed and a friendly account representative that I could email anytime if I had any issues, concerns, etc.

    Pros

    How intuitive it is - I set up a training session just to familiarize myself with the software with the assistance of customer support and he was extremely helpful, though most of it naturally made so much sense!

    Cons

    I wish I could rearrange items/edit metadata on photos while I was uploading others but it's a hazard of the trade so I understand why this is not feature

    Centralized content management platform. Can be used in more ways than just as a repository. We can utilize it going both directions for our class program.

    Cons

    - Libris is great, but we have trouble accessing all of our content via a mobile solution; it is not easy to download and post our videos

    Created a central location for staff to view, upload and download photos.

    Pros

    Love that we can add contributors to upload directly to our library. It has really helped us organize our photos, which were located on various hard drives, CDs, DVDs, and servers. It is a work in progress right now; we are moving batches of photos over as time allows us. We will be working with other city departments to provide them access to upload and search/download the full library as we move along. Staff training was very helpful and we set up naming conventions, procedures and policies before beginning to use Libris.

    Cons

    Would like to have more slots available for internal users, but we are making it work for us as a city. Otherwise, we haven't been able to break the product.

    The ability to batch update IPTC metadata was key for us. In addition, the ability to monetize our photo library is a feature we're interested in but have not utilized yet. Also, prior to implementing Libris, our team would have to load various logo/image assets onto flash drives before traveling to events. Now, we can browse our entire library anywhere we have an internet connection.

    Cons

    One challenge we've had is that not all photographers are comfortable with the upload process. We need to figure out how to make the upload process easier for our various freelancers.

    We are easily able to access all of our content and finally have a shared platform to upload everything. Being able to tag photos and search by the keyword is essential in a team that is geographically separated and the interface is easy to navigate. Libris was kind enough to grant our non-profit access to their 5TB storage program for free and we couldn't be more excited about this partnership.

    Cons

    Files that I am attempting to take from the system and transfer to my computer take a long time even if the file is not very large.
