As a valued Bynder customer, we wanted to let you know about some upcoming updates that’ll make your Bynder experience even better.

Features in this release:

Creative Workflow

New Campaign & Job Menu

This feature will significantly improve the experience of creating jobs and increase preset findability. You are now able to search within the list, making it easier to manage large amounts of jobs and campaign presets. On top of that, you will now have a clear separation between presets and default options!

 

DAM

Similarity Search

Our Similarity Search feature is a game-changer in the way you search for content in your DAM. Select the image you like and press 'Show similar' to retrieve visually similar images from your asset library. Even better, create a small custom model by selecting multiple images. Finding visually similar assets was never quicker and easier!

 

Search by Image

Our new AI-powered Search by Image feature lets you explore your DAM by uploading an image from your desktop or by providing an external image URL to find out if the same or a similar image already exists. You will never again waste resources on creating or procuring assets that you already have! 

 

Text-in-Image Search

Unlock a more efficient and powerful search with text recognition in images. Our AI-powered Text-in-Image search swiftly extracts text within images, for more precise and relevant search results. With Text-in-Image every image with text becomes available for search! 

Duplicate Finder at Upload

Experience a clean and organized DAM with our latest AI feature Duplicate Finder at Upload. AI will alert users if they add identical assets during the upload process. Admins will be informed if duplicates appear in the waiting room. Stay in control by choosing to remove or continue uploading the assets in your DAM.

Secure Embed Assets

Bynder's new Secure Embed Assets feature allows authenticated Bynder users to securely embed videos, images, and more on intranets and other applications. This means that only users, who signed on (for example via SSO), will have access to the content, which does not need to be marked as public. Say "Yes" to more content, and more users, in a more secure way! 

Integrations
