Downloading comps just got way easier
When you’re rushing to put together a rough cut video or photo layout, every extra click on a stock image site can add up. Especially when you’re using 75 clips in one video.
Because Dissolve’s search result thumbnails and rollover quickviews are so big, you can often see if a clip or photo will meet your needs straight from search results, without having to click through to each product page (which used to be the only way to get comps).
So we’re happy to announce that now you can download comps right from search results — just click the “Download comp” button that appears when you hover over any clip or image.
If you prefer to organize clips or images into folders before deciding whether to download comps, that’s cool too. You can now download comps from a folder:
One more thing: If you’re part of the Dissolve Priority program, we’ll queue up your full-size, unwatermarked comps whenever you click “Save comp,” and give you a pop-up alert when they’re transcoded and ready to download. Miss an alert? Just check your Comps page.
Dissolve’s comp clips and images are some of the biggest in the industry. And now it’s even easier to get them, use them, and impress your clients.
