Tell Your Story in Real Time: The Libris Mobile Contributor App

Introducing the fastest way to get photos and videos from your mobile contributors to your brand’s publishing platforms: the Libris Uploader App for iPhone and Android!

Your team is capturing images and videos, literally everywhere, all the time. Your brand relies on the ability to access those visual assets in a hurry so you can tell your story and engage your audience in real time.

The Libris Uploader App provides a direct route from image capture to your permissions-based visual media library. Now, anyone on your team who is out shooting photos or videos with an iPhone can easily upload them straight to your Libris account, where your team of editors can immediately access and use the assets.

But why would we tell you when we could show you? See it for yourself!

The Libris Uploader App is ideal for teams that need to work quickly, while still maintaining control of the brand’s messaging.

Professional photographer Brad Mangin covered THE PLAYERS Championship exclusively using his iPhone, and used the new app to upload photos into PGA TOUR’s visual media library.

TechCrunch covered Mangin’s experience and highlighted the revolutionary impact of his workflow for PGA TOUR:

Caryn Levy, a photo official at the TOUR, said that Brad’s photos were the fastest turnaround time they have ever had at a tournament.

So how will your team use the new Libris Uploader App to tell fantastic stories with speed and efficiency? Download the app today for iPhone and Android!

    I have Android devices, so I can’t try this out (yet), but tell me, what is the metadata tagging capability of the app? Caopyright and Creator Info? Captions and Keywords? Templates / predefined data sets? How much can I add to a photo before I upload it, so that it arrives in the library “ready to use”?

      Hi Chris,

      We’re working on an Android app and will make sure you’re the first the hear about it! The app is all about speed and for metadata tagging only supports updating the Gallery Name and IPTC Keywords. You can learn more here: https://getlibris.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/219655087

      We can help build out a custom app with more advanced metadata tagging and workflow capabilities based on any client’s specific process.

      Jacco (as Kristin is out for a few days;)

      Marie here with the Client Services team. I’m also an avid photographer and social media user. You can absolutely use an Android mobile device to transfer your images, tagged with metadata, into a Libris account. If you’re working with freelance photographers, you would simply add them as Contributors to your Libris account. You’d then create Incoming FTP usernames and passwords for them. On their devices, they would download an app that edits image metadata, plus, an app that works as an FTP client. There are several free apps available, but I’d be curious to hear if any other readers have recommendations for Android?

      I happen to use an iPhone, so I was using Snapseed (to edit my images), PhotoGene (to edit image metadata), and FTP Sprite (to upload) before we launched our mobile contributor app. If you have any further questions or workflows you’d like to chat with me about, please don’t hesitate to reach out!

        Thank you Marie. That’s an interesting work-around. I had forgotten about the FTP upload option. I’m going to experiment with that and try to find a metadata app.
