Create and export assets as a contact sheet

If you want to proof multiple images on a single page or get a visual representation of selected assets, you can create a contact sheet and export it to PDF. You can also select which metaproperties should display on the contact sheet. By default, the layout is set to display 4 images by 5 on the A4 paper size, but this can be changed by custom theming.

How to enable the contact sheet?

Contact your Customer Success Manager if you would like to have the contact sheet enabled for your portal. Optionally, you can also discuss a custom layout for the contact sheet.

  1. Go to Assets.

  2. Filter for the assets you want to display on the contact sheet.
