Share large files in a snap with cloud-based storage and digital media management

Finally. A just-right alternative to Dropbox.

When you need more tagging, playback, collaboration, and file sharing features than what you can get with Dropbox — but don’t need (or can’t afford) all the bells and whistles of a high-end DAM platform, Starchive is the just-right alternative. Designed FOR creatives BY creatives, we fill the gap between too simple and too complex with affordable digital asset management tools.


Take a look at our key features below to see what you’ve been missing in Dropbox and Drive.

Migration Made Easy

Starchive makes importing media super simple — and super fast — from pretty much anywhere. Drag and drop from your computer (keeping your folder structure intact!), or easily connect to your Google Drive or Dropbox to begin importing files.

preview and play back your files

Starchive gives you preview and playback on more file types than most other platforms —photo, video, audio, PDFs, even your creative design documents (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign…try getting previews of those files in Dropbox!). The visual experience of all your media is what makes Starchive one of the most unique platforms in the industry.

your metadata, your way

Tag and describe your files — any number of tags, any way you want. Adding your own metadata is as simple as click and enter. All of your added metadata instantly becomes searchable in your database.

Curate and Connect

With collections, you’re in charge of curating your media in ways that make sense to you. There’s no restriction on what file types can be in a collection or how many files you can include. And the great thing is that any single file can be included in any number of collections — without ever having to be duplicated.

Collaborate with your tribe

No more worries about how to share large files or capture input from others. Starchive is built for collaboration. Invite your tribe —  family members, coworkers, clients, the neighborhood garage band — to join your Starchive and make sharing and managing your media seamless. Our group plans include up to 50 members — no per member pricing that puts limits on how you collaborate.
