Fresc – Better Projects, Happier Clients
Fresc is an image collaboration platform that offers its users a new way to share visual projects online. In a single click, designers and marketing professionals can solicit feedback on visual files from clients without relying on email chains or publishing those files publicly for the world to see.

For Fresc users, sharing images literally could not be any easier. Click on the file you’d like to share and drag it into your browser. Name your project and share it publicly or privately with selected individuals via email. Adobe CS5 and CS6 plugins give you the option to enable auto-sharing, with immediate notifications that are delivered to team members and clients each time your work is shared. Clients are encouraged to give their feedback by referencing selected portions of your work in a separate comments section. You can also set up tasks and deadlines that are connected to individual uploads, which is a perfect solution when working on visual projects with colleagues.

In addition to its basic collaboration and file sharing tools, Fresc also offers advanced version control and custom filters. Users can find the latest version of any project and regroup visuals based on labels or tags. The platform itself works in real-time, with unique roles that admins can use to limit access to what selected team members or clients can see when they collaborate on documents within the Fresc platform.

Practical Uses:

  • Show a client a draft of a project you’re working on
  • Solicit approval on a logo before moving forward with the final design
  • Ask coworkers for feedback on a marketing campaign
  • Set tasks and deadlines for teammates when working on multi-stage projects

Insider Tips:

  • Download the plugin for Adobe CS5, Adobe CS6, Firefox, or Chrome
  • Create a to-do list for teammates based on feedback from the client
  • Zoom in close for precise image inspection
  • Assign roles and varying access levels to each member of your team

What we liked:

  • Users can reference specific areas of a visual when offering feedback
  • Real-time tools prevent people from working on the wrong version of a file
  • Custom filters and labels help keep large projects organized
  • Fresc sends email summaries with information on all relevant work

What we didn’t like:

  • Users with freemium accounts will have their images deleted if there is no activity on their projects for more than 30 days
