Generating previews and thumbnails in Elvis 4 by using Ghostscript

Generating previews and thumbnails in Elvis 4 by using Ghostscript

Without installing additional components, Elvis DAM is capable of generating previews for the following types of images:

  • JPG
  • PNG
  • GIF

Support for EPS and Photoshop files can be added by installing Ghostscript.

Requirements for Linux

Preview and thumbnail generation for EPS and Photoshop files on Linux requires the following files to be installed:

  • libgomp.so.1 library. This is part of the gcc-libs package (this package could be named differently, depending on the used Linux distribution).
  • gs tool. This is part of the GhostScript package.

    On the main Elvis 4 HelpCenter page, the two entries marked below under "Assets" direct to this same webpage, but they have different titles. One should probably be removed.

    Hi Adrian,

    No, this is intentional. :-)

    The first one is to direct users who are looking for information about generating previews while the other is to direct users who are looking for information about generating thumbnails. It so happens that the information is bundled into the same article.

    Best regards,
