Downloading Assets

Perrie Schad -

There are several methods to initiate a download of assets from globaledit:

Individual Assets

Press "Download" located in the top right of the globaledit screen to instantly initiate a download of the original uploaded filetype (source file). You can also download a single source file by using the Options menu (☰) after hovering over that asset and selecting "Download". If your file is under 15MB, the file will be retrieved immediately.


*If you're downloading large or multiple files, the download will need to be retrieved from the download manager.


The Download Manager

The download manager can be accessed by selecting the folder icon to the right of the "Download" button in the top right of the globaledit screen.

This Manager is where you will find all initiated downloads, and can see whether or not they are still processing or are ready to be retrieved (downloaded to your computer). Most downloads take a few moments to process. You will be emailed when it is read. Note: These notifications will stay for 7 days unless you clear them manually.

When ready, the processing icon () will turn into a downward arrow (). Clicking on that Download Arrow to the left of each listing will retrieve the files in that batch.

Download Detail - Downloading Derivatives

If you have a selection of files highlighted, selecting the "Download Detail" arrow button next to the larger Download button will prompt the option to download all filetypes and Derivatives associated with the selected file(s). Here you can choose which type you want to retrieve.

Derivatives can also be retrieved by going to the "Derivatives" section of the Tool Kit, selecting the Derivative files, and using the gear icon () to select "Download", as seen below:

Multiple Assets

To download more than one asset, you can batch select them in the library. From the options menu (☰) in the top right corner of the viewing panel, select "Download".

Your files will then process in the Download Manager and globaledit will notify you via an in-app notification and an email when they are ready to be retrieved.

Selecting the "Download Detail" button with multiple assets will also prompt an additional dialogue box to let you choose the desired file types:

Downloading from a Folder in the Library

To download an entire folder or Job, select the gear icon () to the right of the folder you want to download, and then select Download. Your folder(s) will process through the Download Manager, where you can then retrieve them when ready.

Folders also prompt the "Download All" options dialogue box as seen above, to choose the file types you wish to retrieve. This is also where you can confirm that Aspera High-speed download is Enabled. Note: If you are not running Aspera - multiple asset downloads will download as a single .zip file.]

Downloading from a Lightbox

Downloading from a lightbox can be done by using any of the methods above, in addition to using the "Download All" option at the top of the viewing panel.
