Welcome to Phraseanet’s documentation!

Open source DAM system

Phraseanet is a Digital Asset Management system (DAM for short) targeting the professionals needs. It’s created and maintained by the French company Alchemy.

Phraseanet can store, manage and share a wide range of digital resources such as images, videos, audio or office documents within working groups of any size.

As a 100% Web application, it runs in a modern web browser.

Built upon standard components, Phraseanet settles on Linux, OS X or Windows servers and is based on common software components such as MySQL, PHP or Apache. Other third-party software libraries participate to Phraseanet. Some of these are developed by Alchemy, while some others not.
