The following tables describes all the formats supported by AEM Assets as well as features supported for each format.


Using Adobe's Extensible Metadata Platform (XMP) allows AEM Assets to integrate out of the box with other standards-compliant digital asset management solutions and desktop software.

The following legend describes the level of support AEM Assets offers for a feature:

Please note the following:

  • Support for EPS files applies to raster images only. For example, thumbnail generation for EPS vector images is not supported by default. To add supported you need to configure ImageMagickFor information about integrating third-party tools to enable additional capabilities, see Command Line Base Media Handler.
  • Metadata writeback works for PSB format when it is added to the NComm handler.
  • * The merged image is extracted out of the PSD. This is an image generated by Photoshop and included in the PSD. Depending on the settings in Photoshop this merged image may or may not be the actual image.
  • To use Dynamic Media to preview and generate dynamic renditions for EPS files, see Adobe Illustrator (AI), Postscript (EPS), and PDF file formats.
  • For EPS files, metadata writeback is supported only if the version of PostScript Document Structuring Convention (PS-Adobe) is greater than 3.0.

Supported PDF Rasterizer library

The Adobe PDF Rasterizer library generates high-quality thumbnails and previews for large and content-intensive Adobe Illustrator and PDF files. Adobe recommends using the PDF Rasterizer library for the following:

  • Heavy, content intensive AI/PDF files
  • AI/PDF files with thumbnails not generated out of the box
  • AI files with Pantone Matching System (PMS) colors

For details, see Using PDF Rasterizer.

Supported image transcoding library

The Adobe Imaging Transcoding library is an image processing solution that performs core image-handling functions, including image encoding, transcoding, resampling, resizing, and so on.

Imaging Transcoding library supports the following MIME types:

  • PNG (8 and 16 Bit)
  • GIF
  • BMP
  • TIFF/Compressed TIFF (apart from 32 Bit Tiffs and PTiffs)
  • ICO
  • ICN

For details, see Imaging Transcoding Library.

Supported Camera Raw

The Adobe Camera Raw library enables AEM Assets to ingest raw images. For details, see Camera Raw Support.

Supported Mime Types

Mime types are available in CRXDE Lite at the following path:


See Configuring mime type-based for upload job parameters support.

See also Enabling MIME type-based Assets/Scene7 upload job parameter support.


EPS files have the following five standard MIME type/Internet media types:

  • application/postscript
  • image_x-eps
  • application-eps
  • application_x-eps
  • image_eps

However, because AEM only detects mime type based on the file extension, all of the mime types are detected as application/postscript.

File extension MIME type/Internet media type Mimetype Node Name in JCR Default jobParam value Allowed jobParam value
Image image/s7asset   usmAmount=1.75&usmRadius=0.2&usmThreshold=2&usmMonochrome=0

The default jobParam applies to all image mime type assets.
