The Image Asset Library simplifies collaborative publishing and asset management within Sprout’s publishing suite on the Enterprise plan. Users can easily organize, edit and publish assets from a central location to create and deliver visually engaging social posts. Images can be attached directly from the library or from Compose.
Asset Library settings can be accessed from the gear ( ) icon in the upper right corner of Sprout Social and clicking Asset Library.
Choose to limit assets by groups or show assets across all groups. When selecting limit assets by group, the asset will only show in the group you upload it to. If an asset is needed in multiple groups, but not all, upload it individually to each group. Adjustments to this setting are not retroactive and will only take effect after the new setting has been selected.
Managing assets in the Asset Library can be done from Asset Library located in the Publishing tab.
Choose how you would like to view the Asset Library, by toggling between the grid view and list view with the ( ) icon.
The grid view allow users to view all assets with large image previews.
The list view allows users to view assets by assets detail, including a small image preview. Sort assets by Name, Uploaded By, Uploaded Date or File Size by clicking the specific column header.
The Image Asset Library supports JPEG, PNG and GIFs (maximum size of 8MB). Select +Upload and choose an image (or multiple images) from your desktop to upload.
Enter a name, description, and tag if necessary.
Note: Sprout’s tag management system is universal. The tags available are the same ones available for your group in the Smart Inbox and when composing messages.
Click an asset in Asset Library to view the name, description, who uploaded the image and when it was uploaded.
Other asset information available includes file size, extension, who the last person was to attach the asset to Compose and when. Also, send the asset directly to compose from this view.
View an asset and click the pencil icon to use Sprout’s image editor.
The edited image will be saved as a separate new asset, while the original will remain unedited.
After images are uploaded to the Asset Library, they can easily be attached to new messages from the library itself, or when composing a new message.
Send Asset to Compose
Select the asset(s) you want to publish by clicking the checkbox in the upper left corner of the image, then select Send to Compose.
Twitter supports up to four images attached to a Tweet. Because, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google+ support one image attachment per post, if multiple images are selected to be sent to Compose in the Asset Library, you will only be able to post to Twitter.
Note: The maximum number of images you can select to Send to Compose is four. If you select more than four images, you will only be able to delete those images in bulk.
Compose: Attach from Asset Library
When composing a new message, click the camera icon and choose Asset Library.
Select the asset(s) you'd like to attach to the post and click Send to Compose. The library can be viewed in list or grid format in this view.
