You can work with and learn about an asset by opening it in Detail view. In Detail view, you see the asset size, attributes, derivatives, and metadata. You also see whether and when the asset was published and obtain the URL of published assets. Depending on the asset type, you can preview it at different sizes, zoom in on it, and perform sharpening, cropping, and other formatting operations.

To open the folder where the asset is stored, you can click the folder path at the top of the Information panel.

Open an asset in Detail view

To closely examine, preview, or work on an asset, you can display it in Detail view.

  1. In the Browse Panel, do one of the following:

    • Double-click the asset.

    • Select the asset, then click Detail View.

    • Select the asset, then click File > Details.

Note:

You can page from asset to asset in the same folder in Detail view by selecting the Previous Asset or Next Asset button. These buttons are located in the upper-right corner in Detail view.

Getting information in Detail view

Detail view provides information about an asset or file. It shows this information about an item: the folder where it is stored, its filename, the date the item was uploaded to Scene7 Publishing System, and its publishing history. You can also view and edit metadata and add keywords for an asset in Detail view.

You can obtain an asset URL in Detail view; however, the URL is not active until you publish the asset. For images, Detail view also provides a list of build and derived assets and metadata, such as zoom targets and Image Sets.

Working with assets in Detail view

Detail view offers tools for working with the asset you opened. Which tools are available depends on the type of asset you are working with, but Detail view always offers these functions:

items for publish

Click the Publish icon to the left of the name, or click File > Publish or File > Unpublish.

Renaming the asset

Select the name and enter a new name.

Editing and adding metadata

Select the Metadata panel and make changes as desired. See Viewing, adding, and exporting metadata.

Editing and adding keywords

Select Keywords and add or remove them as desired. See Add or edit keywords.

Deleting the asset

Click File > Delete.

For discrete files—images, Image Sets, and fonts, for example—you can view the publishing and editing history, and check job details, in Detail view.
