Cumulus 8 Now Shipping

Canto describes Cumulus 8 as the “most significant update in the product’s 17-year history.” Usage statistics and reporting are among the most noted new features in this world-class digital asset management system.

You can now value your assets by knowing which ones are used the most, and fine-tune metadata by knowing frequently used search terms. Cumulus 8 can also catalog assets via email, offering easy, network-secure uploads of photos taken with mobile devices, security cameras, etc. Performance is also up to 200 times faster than before.

Additional new features include:

  • Enhanced collaboration through user commenting.
  • Find files faster with user-defined filters that show only certain formats, approved files, etc.
  • Compare multiple assets at once with new full-screen preview.
  • Protect downloaded images with license-free watermarking, included in all editions.
  • Create image variants from inside Cumulus 8, using the built-in Image Editor.

Canto offers a new entry-level edition, as well as its flagship product.
