About media management
inriver has a flexible and configurable process for managing media. The product is the information carrier that carries all media (images, movies etc) and other related information (texts, etc.) through the PIM process through the use of relations.
inriver comes with Digital Asset Management (DAM) capabilities. With inriver, it is possible to open/save Resources from the system through a context menu choice. The menu gives the user three choices - thumbnail, preview and original. The thumbnail and preview images are the renditions in inriver, and will always be in JPEG-format. This makes it easy to download images that are ready for use in MS Ofﬁce or other applications where very large images, or images in PSD-format are not possible to use.
inriver has a built-in image service for handling images and other media files like videos. Images are linked as Entity Resources and stored in the database. They can be searched and browsed throughout the enrichment process, giving the end user an overview of the available resources.
Upload & download media
Media can easily be uploaded to inriver using inriver Supplier Onboarding, inriver Contribute or in inriver Enrich and downloaded by using inriver Content Store or directly in inriver Enrich. All these added functionalities have full search capabilities to facilitate the process of retrieving media files from the inriver repository.

There is a maximum file size limit of 1 GB for assets, 25MB through the REST API, and 100MB through an extension. This is set on the basis of upload timeout limitations and memory limitations of a single process.
inriver has a Lightboard feature to highlight the associated media related to an Entity. As an Entity is selected, the associated media files, down on an item level, will be displayed in the Lightboard window. You can work with your media assets using the Lightboard. Images can be studied in detailed views. These views not only display the full data set, but also show by which entities and in what Channels the resource file is actually being used.

Hi Rasmus Stampe Hjorth. Sorry for getting back to you a bit late! :)
I searched in the Feature Request area to see if there is an existing Feature Request on your question to see the status. However I could not find an existing one.
So the answer is no to your question since no one have yet raised the need for it.
Therefore I truly recommend that you submit a Feature Request here. Share a bit more in detail why and how this would be beneficial for you. And the more votes it gets, the more likely the product owners will take it into consideration.
I will give you my vote when you post it :) , I think that there will be more than you that have the same need.
Thank you for engaging Rasmus in the community!! and keep it up!! :D
Looking forward to see your Feature Request.
