Step 2: Click ‘Email Share’ and enter the recipient’s email address(es), subject, and message. Select the email branding, permissions, expiration date, preview limit, and download limit for this share. Select ‘Protected’ under ‘Additional Options’ to create a protected share.

Preview Only: recipients can only view the asset(s), but not download them
Download: recipients can preview and download the asset(s)
Proxy Only Download: recipients can preview and download the asset’s proxies
Auto-Preview: will preview the asset(s) automatically when the recipient opens the share
Protected Share: will prevent shares from being forwarded to unintended recipients (the recipient will have to verify themselves in order to access the shared assets)
Include Metadata: recipients can view metadata associated with the shared asset(s)

Step 3 (Optional): Depending on if you select a preview-only, download, or proxy-only download share, you can add an overlay, burn-in, or forensic watermark to your selected assets by selecting . After all selections have been made, click ‘Share’.

Step 4: An email notification will be sent to the share recipients.
