Ranks can be assigned to images to indicate the importance or quality of the file. For example, your 'Best' images could be ranked 1 while your 'Worst' images are ranked 5.
Administrators can control Rank options, including the range (the default is 1-5) and labels. Rank can also be used to push the 'Best' images to the top of the search results page.
Watch this video for an overview of using ranks to order your assets by quality.
Configure Your Image Ranks
Your Image Ranks can be configured within the Settings menu. Navigate to 'Image Info' > 'Rank Options'.
Rank options can be configured for project categories and non-project categories. Click the edit icon to the right of the rank to add a label.
Best Practices for Configuring Ranks
When implementing Image Ranks, we generally recommend avoiding an approach that is too granular. You can add additional image ranks to both project and non-project categories, but it should be clear to your users which ranks apply to which images.
Project Category Ranks should enable users to quickly sort search results according to their intended use. They generally consist of five options that look like the ones below:
- Marketing preferred imagery
- Professional imagery
- Non-professional imagery
- Site imagery
Non-Project Category Ranks are generally much simpler and look like the ones below:
If you have multiple headshots for each employee or different versions of your company logo, Rank 1 would enable you to elevate the preferred image above others in searches.
