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 and all its metadata and can create a local rendering. Single assets can be dropped, as well as selections of multiple assets. FotoWeb provides the functionality and APIs necessary for building such integration. However, additional software development is required for each distinct target application 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: Main user licenses or Pro user licenses
Supported user types: Available for Main and Pro users

Note: 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.
