Open your library to multiple visitors

Set up your media library so that new users such as clients, media contacts, and contributors can sign-up automatically. Visitors can request an account and receive their login details automatically by email. This system can also be integrated with existing marketing-driven sign-up forms, and is completely configurable if you need to collect any specifics from users before creating their account.

Alternatively, create Public Galleries and Events and allow access for visitors to individual folders without logging in.

Maintain your internal culture

We appreciate the value of your unique business culture. In your community, in your organization, and in your team, your shorthand language, jargon, and personal habits are what makes your brand unique. Your Third Light library is built to value this too.

Import your own folder names, metadata (file tagging) language, and visual cues.

Maintain your native language

A Third Light library is also a multilingual product, with the ability to offer the user interface to different users or groups in their native language – including right-to-left languages, such as Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.

Rebrand and resell from within your library

All editions of a Third Light library are also ready to use with your own domain name – meaning that any visitors to your library are welcomed to a sophisticated media platform owned by, branded by, and promoting, your business.

The Enterprise edition gives you unparalleled access to customize your library. Add multiple theme packs and languages to your site. Set the search engine to show or hide metadata depending on the role of the user. Install multiple instances of the library on a single server, offering even greater flexibility and cost savings.

“We currently manage just over one million assets (photographs) with Third Light, and have architected the solution to eventually handle about three times that many images (we are in the photography business, so we only use the platform for images).

“It is a true cross-platform collaboration tool that allows us to store and curate our customers’ collections for them. They now have access to their files from anywhere in the world, and can view and utilize their images for continued publication.The software quite simply does everything we need it to do.”

– Eric Newsome, CTO at Historic Images, United States.
