ResourceSpace is an open source Digital Asset Management system originally developed for Oxfam. It has been released under a BSD-style license. It requires PHP, MySQL, and the GD Graphics Library, and works with most web server software such as Apache.

A particular focus is on the improvement of collaboration between users when assembling resources together for a project. Users can create custom 'collections' which include resources and saved searches, which can be shared with other users. Collections work like a shopping cart on an e-commerce site, and are always visible in a strip at the bottom of the screen.


  • Pure web interface
  • Intelligent search ordering - resources are scored against each keyword using user search activity
  • Organisation, collaboration and distribution - tools to organise resources, share with colleagues on projects and distribute to others; removes the need to e-mail large files
  • Automatic resizing - resources can be downloaded in a variety of sizes so users can choose if they require high quality print files or lower quality screen / web resolution files, saving bandwidth and download time
  • Themes - pre-selected groups of resources
  • Permissions - set resource access level by user group
  • Research services - allows specific requests to be made to a central resources team
  • Archiving - resources can be archived and are then not visible in the main search
  • User contributions - allows users to submit resources to the system, which can then be processed by a central team before being made available to other users - useful for working with remote photographers
  • Multilingual - the application is multilingual capable with most major languages supported
  • Automatic thumbnail creation for most image and video file types including JPEG, GIF, PNG, PDF, TTF, Photoshop PSD, AVI, MOV, MPEG using ImageMagick and FFmpeg
  • Comprehensive Exif/IPTC/XMP header import and export using ExifTool
  • Multiple file upload using SWFupload
  • Creates preview 'contact sheets' using FPDF
  • Minimal hosting requirements - uses PHP/MySQL technology which is supported by all major hosting providers
  • Plugin support - third party developers can create plugins to extend functionality
  • Open source - released under a permissive BSD style license
