Canto digital asset management integrates seamlessly with Adobe InDesign

Canto offers two InDesign integrations: the Canto Connector for Adobe and Canto Brand Templates.


Canto Connector for InDesign

With the Canto Connector for Adobe, graphic designers can natively search and filter for images from your Canto media library and insert them into your InDesign layouts. No more downloading assets prior to placing.

Depending on your project needs, you may toggle one or all image links between hi-res and low-res for more efficient work. Update to newer image versions with a simple click. You also have the option to upload files back into Canto as a new version or new file.

Save time with the Canto Connector for Adobe, which works not only with InDesign, but with Photoshop and Illustrator also.

Canto Brand Templates

With Canto Brand Templates, designers can set up master templates for business users to make minor edits, based on brand standards and preset boundaries.

Canto Brand Templates gives graphic designers the power to control brand layout elements in a master InDesign template.

Canto Brand Templates is perfect for customizing sales rep brochures, regional event flyers, franchisee materials and other localized documents.

Once the template is set up, business users can login to a Canto Portal and make content edits via a simple web browser – with no InDesign license or knowledge needed.

The designer decides which document elements are locked down such as a company logo, font colors, sizes, imagery and more. And which elements can be modified to accommodate the business users’ needs.
