Recent Assets Browser¶
Here is my first attempt at the asset browsing page. I am not really sure what types of information you guys are storing in your database for the images so I didn’t really know what the best options were for sorting / searching / labeling images. So I just sort of came up with some off the top of my head but I mean we can put whatever we want in there. Just let me know what you guys are thinking on this one.
Recent Files Browser¶
Here is also a first shot at the files browsing page. For consistency, it is set up similar to the photos browsing page. The icons are generic icons for placement only. As I understand it, this would be a place to go to see what is new and browse around, not necessarily the place to keep files specifically organized, and not the only place to access files. You could set this up to be able to pull by files sorted by group, all files (that the particular user would have access to), and sort further into most recent or by user. Of course, there are tons more possibilities with sorting, depending on your needs. Feel free to let me know about anything else that you believe should be on this page.
Recent Asset Display¶
Ok, first stab at the Asset Display. This is what you would see after you have selected a file/photo from the browser.
IA: Current UI elements¶
- Download / Upload
- Versioning (History)
- Info section
- Asset Display (JPG representation if it is a document)
- Resizing: Small, Medium, Large
Notes: Asset Display¶
Took a look at Gullery, Boxroom and Flickr- taking main influence from Flickr, especially with regards to resizing and the display of information.
The current functionality is inluded in the new version with these added:
- Simple edit feature for images (crop, rotate). This doesn’t appear necessary or worth the trouble for documents.
- Caption option
- Resizing option to the original size (photos only)
- Add to Gallery (photos only)
Am I understanding correctly that a JPG representation would be produced in the case that this is a document instead of a photo? In the history section, I thought it may be simpler to just have a little icon to delete previous versions. I assume only someone with admin privileges or the person that uploaded the file would have access to delete. At the top of the “asset”, I put the functions like “download,” “upload,” “resize,” etc. I also added “edit,” I saw someone mentioned that this might be a nice thing to have, like cropping for example, for simplicity or for the less tech-savvy. Obviously, you could easily take out or add other stuff there.
