Elpical – Clover Image Processing
Handling large quantities of images and other assets is not just about quality and style: How to manage all your files in a user-friendly and efficient way becomes more and more important as their numbers increase. That’s why we developed Clover software, a server-based asset-managing system specifically designed for publishing staff who deal with large quantities of different media assets on a regular basis.
ALWAYS ACCESS, SEARCH, AND USE YOUR ASSETS
Publishers tend to own millions of media assets, ranging from images and graphics to full pages. And they continue to receive and produce thousands of new media assets every single day. Clover excels in making all those assets accessible, searchable and usable for your editorial staff. It does so in a simple, transparent and straightforward way, while at the same time automating various production tasks.
SAVE TIME (AND STRESS) WITH CLOVER
Sending images in a specific file format, resolution and colorspace to a specific destination – be it a folder, ftp server, email address, printer or a third party webservice – are things that should be automated – and can be automated with Clover. You simply select an export from a drop-down menu and the rest is completely automated. Image enhancement can be automated through the seamless integration with Claro.
Publishers usually have multiple publications. Depending on source and type, assets may be relevant for one publication, multiple publications or all publications. With Clover you can organize your assets so that editors have access to only those assets that are relevant for them. This reduces workload and increases the quality and efficiency of the selection process. Clover organizes assets using user-groups, asset-collections and roles, giving everyone access to what they need – not to what they don’t.

Newspapers have a demanding production workflow with many thousands of new images arriving each day, and publishing many hundreds of images per day.
