FotoWeb Drag and Drop export

FotoWeb can be integrated with desktop applications such as editorial systems to enable users to drag and drop assets into an external app. The desktop application receives the asset along with all its metadata and can create a local rendering of it. Single assets can be dropped, as well as selections of multiple assets. FotoWeb provides functionality and APIs necessary for building such integration. However, additional software development is required for each distinct target application in order to make the application accept dropped assets and request information from FotoWeb.

Requirements for Drag and Drop export  
Required archive permissions: View and Place (minimum)
Required system License: Plus user licenses or Pro user licenses
Supported user types: Available for Plus and Pro users

IMPORTANT: An API license is required to use drag & drop integration, however when retrieving only metadata and quick renditions, no API license is needed.
Accessing the original (high resolution image) file of an asset in a third-party application requires an API license.
