Preview an asset

Important

If you want to zoom in on an inline preview, ensure the deep zoom option is on.

In Sitecore Content Hub, you can actively preview an asset without downloading it.

Note

When you upload a RAW file, colors in the preview image might not be the same as the original. This happens when RAW files do not have an embedded preview, causing Content Hub to generate one.

With the deep zoom functionality on the inline preview page, you can zoom in on large images with high resolution, without the usual blurring and pixelation of magnifying smaller previews of the original. This reduces the time taken to load and display an image by opening a fit-to-page image.

To preview an asset:

  1. On the menu bar, click Assets.

  2. On the Assets page, do one of the following:

    • On the asset you want to preview, click Preview and then click the image preview.

    • Click the asset you want to preview and then, on the top-left of the asset details page, click the image preview.

The following table describes the inline preview options:

Marquee ZoomLets you draw a selection over the image preview, which then adjusts the magnification level to fit that selection inside the current view.
Note

Excel previews use the en-US locale, regardless of the locale your personal device uses. Consequently, any number or date in the Excel file appears according to the en-US locale settings.
