Presets & Job Optionsmail_outline

Presets in Lytho DAM allow you to provide your users with set options for downloading, creating, and cropping, ensuring top quality no matter the use case.

Download Presets

Assets can be downloaded in their original size but Lytho offers a way to define download presets for your assets. With these presets a user can download assets in the right dimensions, for the right purposes. When downloading an asset, users can see the dimensions, Dots Per Inch (DPI) and the title of a preset, so they can choose the correct file size.

From your Settings sub-navigation, select PRESETS to access and manage your preset settings. 


Within the Download settings tab you can create and manage download presets. Click the Add button in the top right corner of your screen to create a new preset. 


Create a name for your preset, enter the dimensions, and select a file type from the dropdown menu. Click Save when complete. 


Edit or delete a preset an any time using the actions menu to the right of the appropriate preset. 


Job Options 

Job options are recommended pdf-settings defined by a commercial printer or print service provider saved in a .joboptions-file. With these files, your pdf files will be created to meet specific requirements. You can create these files with Adobe InDesign, add them on this settings page, and assign them to your pdf outputs in Create & Publish.

Ask your printing office for the correct job options you need to meet their press requirements so you will get the best result.

Navigate to the Job options tab in PRESETS to access your job options. 


Click the Upload a print option file button in the top right corner of your screen and upload a new job options file from your local files. If uploaded successfully it will appear next to the others in the list. All listed job options will be available when setting up a template in Lytho.


Cropper Presets 

Assets can be cropped to any custom width and height but with the cropper presets users can select a preset width and height from a drop-down list.

Navigate to the Cropper presets tab in PRESETS to access your cropper presets. 


Click the Add button in the top right corner of your screen to create a new preset. 


In the DEFAULT PRESETS tab are some common use cases for cropped images. Select the preset(s) you would like to add and click Save when complete. 


Select the CUSTOM PRESET tab to create your own preset. Enter a name for your preset and the dimensions. Click Save when complete. 


Edit or delete a preset an any time using the actions menu to the right of the appropriate preset.


You end users will see these options in the Cropper presets dropdown menu and have the ability to easily download these specific dimensions.
