Organizations & Libraries

What is a Library?

A Library in Raster is simply a collection of images. Each Library is completely isolated from other Libraries and has its own unique set of images, tags, and collaborators.

You can create as many Libraries as you’d like (within usage limits) and each Library belongs to an Organization.

How to add users to a Library

Users must have a Raster account before being added to a workspace. If they don’t yet have an account, send them an invite in the User menu (top left corner).

To add a user to a Workspace, visit the Workspace settings page (the cog icon beside the Workspace name in the Workspace menu). Input the user’s email, and select a role for the user. Roles are defined as follows:

  • Owners can manage users, edit workspace information, and delete the workspace
  • Editors can add photos and edit tags
  • Viewers can view photos and all information about them. Viewers will always be free, and you can have as many as you want.

What is an Organization?

An Organization in Raster represents a team or a company. It can also just be a single, personal user. Organizations are essentially groupings of Library but with another layer of security on top.

Organization administrators can see all Libraries in that Organization (and change settings like URL, Name, Avatar, etc.).

You can create as many Organizations as you’d like, however billing is handled at the Organization level.
