Downloading files using the Desktop client of Elvis 5

When working with files that are stored in Elvis, there may come a point that you want to save one or more files locally to use them in some way.

Using the Elvis Desktop client, it is possible to download a range of selected files or download a complete folder structure.

You can download the original file in its original format or you can download the preview as used by the Elvis clients. Previews are downloaded in a specific file format for each kind of file (see the supported file types). For images, custom download options are available.

You can access all download options from the application menu and the context menu on selected files. There is also a button to download the selected original files.

The Download Image As option in the context menu

Downloading a custom image

Images can be downloaded in various ways. Right-click a file and choose Download Image As... > Custom... and choose one of the following options.

The Download As dialog

  • Format. Download the file in any of the following file formats:
  • PNG
  • JPG
  • TIFF
  • Size to. Download the image in its original size or as a percentage of that size.
  • Resolution. Specify the resolution in which to download the image.
  • Metadata. Define if the metadata of the original file should be included.

Note: The PNG format does not support embedded metadata and does not support including metadata from the original.

  • Color profile. (Requires Elvis 5.24 or higher) Define if the color profile that was used to generate the preview should be included.


Options that you use often can be saved as presets.

You can share these presets with other users in the same user groups as you.

Tip: Server administrators can share presets with all user groups and can edit and remove presets.

Organize presets

You can organize your presets in a special tab. You can access the tab in the application menu, under Organize. Here you can modify or delete presets that were created by yourself. You can also create new presets here or duplicate existing ones.
