Image editing and video conversion

Before downloading it is possible to reduce, crop and rotate images and save them in new formats optimized for the web, PowerPoint or printing. The built-in conversion tool can be used to convert audio and video files into different predefined formats such as MP3, QuickTime, Flash Video, etc. 

Here is shown that Kontainer allows image editing in the image bank and video conversion in the video archive.

Upload and preview

It is simple to upload many files at once using the built-in “multi-select” function. When the files have been successfully uploaded, a thumbnail preview is automatically generated so that all files can be seen; irrespective of whether they are TIFF, EPS, AI, PDF, video files, etc. This makes it easy to check that this is the correct version before downloading.

This shows the special preview function in the Kontainer image bank and video archive.
