Manage your website assets with this simple 3-step process

1. Collect

Multi-file uploader. Upload photos, videos, audio files, documents, and fonts needed to build and run your website. All from your desktop, tablet, or smartphone. Drag-and-drop entire folders directly from your desktop.

Scalable cloud storage. All files are stored in the cloud. No need to worry about running out of hard drive space or losing your files in an accident or disaster.

2. Organize

Collections. Categorize your files into folder-like collections so you can find them later.

Associate related files. No more hunting for the source video file for that YouTube or Vimeo video or needing to recreate a JPEG because you can't find the source PSD.

3. Publish

Share URLs. All files uploaded to Live Editor come with a URL to paste into your website code or CMS editor.

HTML 5 video and audio encoding. It's a major pain to encode your video and audio into the multiple formats required by the myriad of computers, smartphones, and tablets out there. Rest assured: Live Editor takes care of this grunt work for you and hands you a simple embed code to use.

Why Live Editor?

During my 15 years of building websites, I’ve been extremely dissatisfied with content management tools. I’ve never encountered a CMS that I haven’t considered to be an embarrassment to hand over to clients and coworkers. They’re always difficult to understand and way too technical to be useful.

My goal with Live Editor is to provide a content management system that works for you, not the other way around.

Live Editor File Manager lets you first focus on the various documents involved in building a website. It lets you wrangle together the various photos, logos, videos, audio files, Word documents, PDFs, and Photoshop documents common to any web project. You can then organize your files so that nothing gets lost in the process.

With Live Editor File Manager, I am committed to making website file management work for you. I hope that you’ll become a part of our story and let us solve this problem for you once and for all.
