Organize, Find and Share Your Brand Assets

The best image library for managing, publishing and distributing brand assets

Are you tired of hunting for your brand images?

Let’s face it – Dropbox was never meant to be a media library. Canto’s features make it easy to upload, organize, search, protect and share your visual images, videos and other brand assets.

Canto’s features make it possible for marketing and creative teams of all sizes to work efficiently and effectively across the organization.

Organize visual content in a visual way

Canto simplifies how you manage your image library. Folders and albums offer powerful sorting options, while keywords and tags provide easy labeling. Image recognition auto-suggests tags for you. Smart Albums automatically sort content by file type. Large previews, HD video playback, personal collections and relating files to each other all help keep your brand assets just a few clicks away.

Search for all your brand assets from a central library

Can we let you in on a little digital asset management secret? If you take the time up front to add descriptive tags, keywords and custom metadata to your digital assets, your team’s search results will thank you long into the future.

However, even if little or no metadata has been added to your content in Canto, even the broadest search results can be filtered by other information that Canto automatically extracts; such as who uploaded the file, what date it was added, file size ranges, image orientation and much more. With Canto, search becomes a powerful time-saving practice instead of a chore.

Share: Control how you share your digital assets

Share assets on-the-fly with team members and outside collaborators. You can send links that expire, instead of bulky email attachments. Canto lets you choose to add watermark overlays for added protection. One of the most popular ways to share content from your Canto media library, is to create branded self-service portals – perfect for distributing sales materials, event photography, press kits, brand centers and more.

User Roles: Need different levels of access? Assign different user roles and groups

Canto has five different types of users. Each comes with its own set of permissions and capabilities – from uploading content, running reports and customizing the entire Canto setup, down to restricted downloading, preview-only and searching only certain albums. User groups can be created to simplify permission management.

Branding: Host your digital assets in a tool that complements your brand

Brand identity is important to your success. Reinforce your brand by adding your own splash login screen and welcome message, as well as brand colors and in-app logo.

From your main Canto library, you can create separate Portals for each division, chapter, department, client or other stakeholder group. Each distribution Portal that you create can have it’s own separate branding – giving users an elevated high-touch experience. Even save multiple branding themes for later re-use.
