Ease of navigation is key to reducing time spent by editors browsing, or searching through their asset repository. New features in Zoom Desktop 8.2 such as the folder breadcrumb trail make this a breeze.

New Settings Panel

To change your profile or customize the Zoom Desktop UI, you can use the new Settings panel to personalize the application.

Advanced Search Enhancements

Advanced search now allows you to limit your search to only the selected folders as opposed to earlier version the search would span across all your folders. Custom defined file type filters allow you to scope the search to specific class of media.

View Links

Tracking links to elements used in an Adobe CC project or the other way around, finding all the projects an element is being used in has always been possible in Zoom Visual Asset Browser. 

With this feature, you can locate the elements used in a project with one click from Zoom Desktop.

View Layers
