Learn about the differences in features between Dash and Flickr

Updated over a week ago

We often hear from users who are currently using Flickr to store their assets, and are interested in what benefits they'd get by moving to a Digital Asset Management tool like Dash.

Generally speaking, Flickr is great for individuals who want to focus purely on photography promotion and sharing, whereas Dash is designed for small teams who have multiple types of assets and want to centrally store, share and maintain them with the least amount of hassle possible!

What you get in Dash that you don't get in Flickr

  • Multi-user access - give access to the whole team to your assets, so anyone can download, upload, edit or share assets, with permissions assignable for each user

  • Support for any file type - upload and search for any file type, not just photos

  • Effortless bulk editing - make bulk changes to assets quickly and easily

  • Custom metadata fields - create your own fields using a variety of pre-made types to capture the information you really need to see

  • Auto-tagging (Growth plan) - automatically tag objects, text and locations in your assets as soon as you upload them, making them instantly searchable by any user without any manual tagging or organisation being required
