  • ability to preview images at 1280 pixels, up from the previous 550 pixels;
  • ability for users to download assets from thumbnails instead of clicking into the assets for a full preview;
  • addition of three new thumbnail previews (small, medium and list views);
  • sorting options for assets;
  • faceted search on the left panel to easily discover and find the most popular assets; and
  • inclusion of search tips in the search bar.
