  • "Very user friendly and easy to navigate your way around it, we can't imagine working without it as it is a very popular and trusted resource across our regional teams. The customer and IT support you get from the team at Third Light is also fantastic. It has been great value for money in allowing the company to share assets."

    Craig - Creative Lead EMEA - G2 Review
  • "Design of the site is very contemporary and more modern compared to previous software offered by Thirdlight. Searching and refining searches in the site is much easier and much more obvious for the standard day-to-day users we have on our system. Navigation through site is great and was one of the first things our users noticed upon logging in. The pricing structure compared to rivals is very fair. We have over 300,000 assets on the site and searching is much quicker than it was on IMS which is fantastic for our users and saves a lot of time in the long-run."

    Jordon - Photography Coordinator - G2 Review
  • "Two things I love about third light. First: the team. Unlike many other providers in the space, you get to speak to real humans who genuinely care. This immediately elevates the experience. Secondly, the software itself - we have a whooooole bunch of files, and the thing that really elevates Third Light is it's ease of use, particularly when delving through large swathes of files."

    Joe - SME user - G2 Review
  • "The system's capabilities are second to none in terms of data management, security, ease of uploading, tracking downloads and allocating permissions to different levels of users."

    Tim Lumsdaine, Morph Creative
  • "From the sales process at the very beginning of our relationship to sporadic issues that pop up, to large scale questions, we have been very impressed with our customer service experience. I recommend Third Light to anyone I can. For the price and the quality of the software, Third Light can't be beat."

    Dan Hilton, Phoenix Suns
  • "Third Light helps us store, organize, share, find and edit media files of all kinds. We especially like the dynamic, faceted search functionality and the very powerful metadata system."

    Hanne Marthinsen, Web Editor, MarkedsPartner AS
  • "ThirdLight's new platform, Chorus, is super easy to navigate and visually it is very user friendly. It's worked well for our medium-sized charity and I would highly recommend it. The expired image banner functionality has has really positive feedback with our colleagues, particularly as we work with image consent forms."

    Administrator in Civic & Social Organization (51-1000 emp.) - G2 Review
  • "As we've grown to over one million assets, I can confidently tell you that the queries are incredibly fast, responsive, and accurate. This is an IT implementation you won't regret. Third Light is extremely stable, highly scalable, and far exceeded our expectations. This support organization is the best I've dealt with in 20 years of IT, hands down. "

    Eric Newsome, Historic Images
  • "When we needed an off the shelf digital platform for sharing our photography we picked Thirdlight. In the 10 years since we've been able to grow and expand our service with ease. Over that whole period I can't remember having any downtime at all and any issues were addressed with speed. Being able to access all the different features of the Thirdlight product without incurring any developer or project management cost has left us able to focus on delivering our core offering."

    Jon - 50-1000 employees business user - G2 Review
  • "The platform is very user friendly. I can make the space I need within my organization with very few issues. If I ever have questions, there is someone there to answer them in a timely manner. Great product, great customer service!"

Publishing digital assets from Third Light

Share assets from a branded hub

It's quick and easy to provide promotional material for your partners' self service. Trackable, customizable, public-facing content banks can be configured to balance your marketing objectives with security requirements.

ITV case study

"Being able to run custom metadata reports has been a huge benefit for how ITV manages its images archive. With Third Light’s media library, when we upload a photo the team is able to do a bulk metadata edit about the TV show it went out on, the date it went out on, and the platform generates a spreadsheet based on this, saving the team valuable time."

Robert Waghorn, Senior Production Technology and Applications Manager - ITV Studios
