What are versions and how do they work?

Learn about revisions and how they work

Versions provide a record of asset changes so that users can review the iterations of an asset through its lifecycle. Users with the required access can view and compare versions of an asset and, optionally, can restore an earlier version while retaining all other versions.

In FotoStation, version control constantly monitors changes to assets and their metadata and stores every new version without user intervention. 

Which events create a new version? 

The following FotoStation operations will create a new asset version:

  • All metadata changes (edit, macro, template)
  • Editing an image  
  • Executing actions that cause a change to the asset
  • Renaming an asset
  • Also, restoring a previous revision will create a new current version based on the version that was restored

    An asset with more than one version will have a version control marker (outlined in red below) on the thumbnail indicating the number of versions that the asset has:
