Share Links and Embed Assets

Follow

Webdam makes it easy to share links to assets in your DAM or embed those assets on a web page or email. Admins and contributors may access the links.

Watch our short video covering all of Webdam's embed options.
Note: Some features are only available to enterprise edition customers.

 

Share a link or embed an asset:

  • Log into Webdam.

  • Double click an asset to see its asset details page..

  • Click in the actions toolbar. The Get Links window will display page, direct and embeddable links. Here’s how they work:

    • Page links: Links to the asset details page. Anyone who clicks the link will need to log into Webdam to access the asset.

    • Direct link: Links to a preview of the asset in the browser. People who click the link will not be able to download the asset and are not required to log into Webdam to view it. You can choose the maximum pixel size for this preview before sending.

    • Embeddable link: HTML code that embeds the asset into a blog, website, etc. You can choose the maximum pixel size for this asset before embedding. You do not need a Webdam login to view the asset.

    Hi Mary Claire - Can you please tell me a little more? Is there a specific size that you are looking to embed?

    Is there a way to edit the embed code so that the video doesn't autoplay?

    Hi Michael - There is not currently a way to configure this option.

    I'm trying to send a direct link to an MP3 file, but it's just giving me a link to the MP3 png image file. Can we not share direct links of MP3 files? This is the direct link it is providing: https://static2.webdamdb.com/images/mp3_100.png

    Also, the embed link is requiring authentication. I add it to our sharepoint site, but when clicked, it goes to the WebDAM login screen.  

    Thanks!

    Webdam Response:
    -------------
    If you want to send a direct link someone who has access/Webdam credentials, you'll want to send them the URLs under the section "Page Links." If the user only has access to Brand Connect, send them the Brand Connect URL. If the person has both access to CORE and Brand Connect (with the correct permissions), then either/or URLs can be provided. Alternatively, you can also email the link to the user as well.

    If you are sharing this to a guest user (who doesn't have Webdam credentials), then the best practice would be to share the asset via Email Download.

    If your page is utilizing the Page Links and your Brand Connect Portal is not public, then the user will be prompted to log in.
