Licenses are commonly added in order to protect assets, such as images, from being misused in any way. Different types of licenses are being added, and it’s helpful to know which ones best suit your needs before including them for your images. This article will help you assign licenses to your assets in the Media Library.
Setting Up Licenses for Your Media Library Assets
Go to the backend of your Media Library. On the Power Bar, click on the ‘Setting’ cogwheel to reveal Media Library settings. Here, you can choose ‘Add License.’
A new, smaller window will appear to let you specify the title, which is the type of license (Creative Commons, royalty free, etc.), and then add a description of the license for details. Additionally, you have the option to apply these specifications by default to every new asset and activate the requirement to accept license notices before anyone is able to download an asset – simply by toggling the respective buttons. If you opt to download a whole collection, all license specifications of the included assets will be displayed in the popup.
From the moment you select an image from the backend of your Media Library, you can create the copyright status, copyright notice, and/or licenses in a bulk action or individually for your assets.
The image below shows how this functionality appears in the backend when opening an image. You can also edit the licensing information by switching to the metadata tab.
In the frontend, the image’s license can be displayed when clicking on the “Information” option on the Power Bar. The information can only be viewed there, not modified.
