What are versions, variants and related assets?

With versions you can store older versions of a specific asset. But also (cropped) variants and related assets can be created and uploaded.

In the detail view of an asset you might have noticed a tab called 'Versions'. Under the versions tab three types of assets can be found here:

  1. Versions
    Older versions of this specific asset. These versions can be uploaded after clicking on the edit button (pencil) in the top of the menu. The 'Upload version' button will appear and open your file explorer when being used. After uploading you need to select which version is active. Only the active version is available in the Asset manager.
  2. Variants
    Slightly different versions with, for example, different dimensions. Variants can be uploaded, just like versions, after clicking the edit button (pencil). But variants can also be made using the cropping tool.
  3. Related assets
    Before adding related assets, make sure you've added the related assets to the Lytho asset manager. Related assets can be uploaded from your file explorer or you can search for them in the asset manager.
