Digital Asset Management

Which file formats should your Digital Asset Management system support?

Brandworkz DAM supports over 500 different file types and counting — but so do a lot of other DAM systems, as well as what I would describe as online file systems like Box or Sharepoint. So, does that mean you can confidently tick that requirements box when selecting a system to house all of your brand and marketing assets? — absolutely not!

While most DAM vendors can come up with a long list of supported file formats, there are typically only a handful of formats that brand and marketing users really care about, and some of these can be supported in wildly differing ways across different systems. It’s HOW they are supported that matters in the real world. 

Here, I’m going to look at these “all critical” file types you need to focus on, and outline features that separate basic support from the real-world functionality you really need. Let’s get started! 

The file formats that actually matter 

I would say that there are five main types of “assets” (e.g. images, videos, etc), each with a handful of important file types, and we have worked very hard to ensure that these formats are first-class citizens and not just supported in a tick-box fashion within Brandworkz.

The ones we find that most clients care about are these:

Asset type 1: Images

It’s important to note that images should be classified separately from illustrations and graphics, which I will address next. The six image file types that are must-haves include:  

  1. JPG: Typically supported well on all DAM platforms, ours included, as it is a simple format. One thing to look out for is extraction of embedded metadata. If you e.g. purchase lots of images from Getty Images or download them from Unsplash, they will typically have very useful keywords and captions embedded. Make sure that the DAM system you select can extract/map these in a meaningful way.
  2. PNG: Your PNG files need to be supported including transparency. For example, if you have PSD or PNG masters and end-users need to download low-res versions of these, the transparency should survive the transcoding. If your web team is going to use the DAM, you will probably also want to get them to check that the file size of PNGs generated from high-res masters aren’t bloated in terms of file size.
  3. TIFF: TIFF supports layers, multiple-alpha channels, clipping paths and embedded colour profiles. If you use any of these, check that these survive transcoding and that previews show up sensibly for YOUR files. There are essentially endless permutations, especially if you are using CMYK TIFF files. So, you may find that the colours of these show up with distorted colours.
  4. PSD/PSB (Photoshop/Photoshop Big): Very complex file structure with layers, layer-groups, transparency layers, effects layers, multi-gigabyte file sizes, etc. To support this well, we have chosen to run Photoshop natively on our servers. This is really the only way to ensure that previews are accurate and transcodes retain all elements of the original file.
  5. Camera RAW: We auto-create previews from a wide range of RAW formats, but check with YOUR files as every manufacturer has their own format and some even have multiple.
  6. WEBP: This is Google’s relatively new image format for the web, which they intend to become the replacement for JPG and PNG. It compresses better than JPG, and also supports transparency like PNG. However, you wouldn’t want to upload WEBP masters to your DAM as the compression is lossy, but if your web team is going to use the DAM they might want it to be able to output WEBP format for website use.

Format and resolution transcoding: For all of the above formats, you need the ability to set up image transcodes so you, as the admin, can offer end-users their images in a format and resolution which makes sense for them. For example, regardless of the source format and resolution of an image, sales users should be able to download that image as a screen-res JPG for use in MS Office — and should probably also be stopped from downloading the original as this may be a high-res TIFF which is going to bloat their document.

Asset type 2: Graphics and icons

Illustrations and other graphics need special consideration. As “digitally native” images, these can and should be formatted as vector graphics, rather than raster graphics — allowing to scale to any size without creating pixelation while retaining a small file size. The two main file options here are: 

  1. Adobe Illustrator AI and EPS: We support these, including showing any transparent areas as a checkerboard. This is crucial if you have e.g. white/reverse logos or icons that are white on transparent.
  2. SVG: Supported as per AI/EPS above. Many companies use SVG for their icon libraries and increasingly also for their logos.

 
For AI, EPS and SVG files your DAM system should also be able to transcode these to PNG at a resolution chosen by the end-user. That way you don’t also have to upload PNG versions when end-users need them for systems that don’t support SVG — e.g. Word Online or Google Apps for Business.

Asset type 3: Documents

It’s easy to focus on images and brand graphics. However, text documents and PowerPoint presentations form an equally important part of your brand profile and brand system. There are three major file types to consider. 

  1. PDF: Relatively easy to support. We make sure that end-users can see all pages in the doc, and that even if you have very large files that they preview. 
  2. MS Word, PowerPoint: We run actual versions of MS Office on our servers because this is the only way to generate reliable, accurate previews. We also have the ability to install your corporate/custom fonts so the text doesn’t render in a system font. 
  3. Adobe InDesign CC: This is a proprietary format, so we run native InDesign CC on our servers to generate accurate previews. Again, we can install your corporate/custom fonts for accurate text rendering.

Indexing text: The text of all of the above docs should also be indexed for search. This is critical for ensuring flexible access to files when needed, and greatly accelerates review of documents for research purposes. 

Asset type 4: Videos

Video files present unique challenges related to their size, along with the wide range of file types. I think there are two main types to consider. However, you can look at them as a single solution within Brandworkz. 

  1. Quicktime and MP4: We support these well, but note that there are so many variants within these two “wrapper” formats that it’s almost impossible to know if a DAM — including ours — will support your files well without trying it out with some of your “worst-case” videos, e.g. especially large ones, or broadcast ones with codecs such as Apple ProRes.


Note: As an example of the limitations within this category, some DAM systems only support up to 2GB for upload/download, which means that you can’t even get most broadcast videos onto the system, let alone get a preview. The previews should, of course, be video previews as opposed to a single still frame.

Asset type 5: Audio

Like with video, there are a lot of audio files, and a lot of variations within each type of audio file. Again, there are two critical file types that are arguably worth looking at together. 

  1. MP3 and WAV: We will wrap these in an audio player so users can listen to the audio straight from the page without downloading them.

Additional considerations:

Although not file types themselves, there are two additional specifics to consider within the context of all the file types discussed above. 

  1. Logos: This is, of course, not a file format category as such (typically being either EPS, SVG, JPG or PNG files). However, even with a good visual preview it’s very easy for non-technical users to select the wrong format because, of course, the previews will be identical across the different technical formats. Logos are, therefore, treated differently in Brandworkz. We put these into our Logo Finder module, enabling non-technical users to easily find the right permutation for their use.
  2. Custom thumbnails: No system can show a preview of all file types, and even when they do this may not be the preview you want to represent the file for end-users. Therefore, make sure that the system you select has the ability to upload a custom thumbnail.

What this means for your choice of DAM

Fundamentally, if you’re choosing a DAM system you should put together a representative test collection of your most complex, largest, nasty files. Then, upload them to each DAM system you’re trialling and see how they cope in terms of:

  • Uploading and downloading: This seems like a no-brainer, but we have had to integrate with other DAM systems where the files uploaded couldn’t be re-downloaded because they were too large : /
  • Previews: This includes image previews, video/live previews and document previews — ideally for all pages.
  • Text extraction for documents: Are you able to search text, and has the extraction been done accurately? 
  • Metadata extraction for images and videos: Pay specific attention to both the type of metadata extracted, and the accuracy of the extraction. 

Realistically, no datasheet, guide, or checklist is as good as trying out a system yourself using your actual files and brand material. Only then will you be able to see what works, what causes problems, and what will improve outcomes. 

Of course, at Brandworkz, we believe in the flexibility and sophistication of our Brand Management Software, and we wouldn’t want you to buy it without trying it out yourself. Get in touch if you want to book a demo and put our system to the test.
