Select an album during upload

A new feature in Flight LHR – selecting an album you want your currently uploading asset to appear, in exactly the same way you add metadata to the uploading file. The asset will be automatically added to the album.

Direct URLs for preview and download

You can now copy the URL of an image or video asset and send it directly to a collaborator. You can also just paste in your html page without going through a third party website – especially useful for video files. Direct URLs provide a fast, global delivery of your assets.
