Software that does what it's supposed to and little else

Pros: Canto allows our team to store, share, and access digital assets and photography efficiently enough. Ability to create albums, tag photos, large storage capacity - all of these are appreciated and well-received.

Cons: The Canto interface seems a bit clunky and glitchy much of the time. The left sidebar to navigate through albums isn't very intuitive or responsive. Often, when clicking on an album name to open its drop-down menu, there will be no response. So the use has to continue clicking and clicking on it. Scrolling down through each album's photos, the loading of preview images usually lags. And the longer you scroll through the pics, the more it lags. To bypass this, often you need to refresh your browser which takes you all the way back to the top of the album and you have to begin scrooooollling dooown through all the photos again. (I've tested several browsers - same issue with each one)

Overall: Overall, Canto is simply too cumbersome and glitchy for something that should be as "simple" as storing and quickly accessing photo libraries. I'd recommend more of a rows/columns type of user interface for albums, instead of the left side dropdown menu types of navigation. Compared to Canto, I'd prefer Google Drive or Google Photos for asset management.

"Canto makes Digital Asset Management a Breeze"

What do you like best?

Canto has made sharing various assets such as images, videos, and designs easier than our previous solutions.

What do you dislike?

The initial onboarding and setup did take some time. However, maintaining our assets is very easy compared to previous solutions where we had assets scattered across multiple platforms such as dropbox, email, messenger, etc.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely worth trying out to see if it fits your needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We previously did not have a good way of sharing assets of individual skus with various vendors and customers. Canto makes it easy to customize what each of these people see, rather than forcing them to dig through files they do not need.

"Canto has solved many issues for us"

What do you like best?

The Canto platform has been a huge help for us! It has made organizing, tagging, and sharing of images incredibly easy. The site is easy to work on as well. The Portal function is also amazing. I was tasked with creating a Portal and found a very helpful tutorial on the creating one that made it very easy. Highly recommended platform with very reasonable pricing options.

What do you dislike?

I would say the only thing that is a bit buggy is when creating new folders and albums in the folder structure.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do it!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Easily sharing images to external partners.

"So intuitive, responsive, fun to use! "

What do you like best?

It immensely aids with pain points like organizing and searching for specific images, and is easy enough for someone with little to no photo editing experience. It loads way more quickly than you'd expect something so robust to.

What do you dislike?

I wish it had "related images" automatically populated somehow! It would be great if more than just the person who uploaded the image could add keywords and other kinds of notes. Creating custom folders would be great instead of having to default to what the original uploader chose.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Organization that works for everyone! Ease of accessibility whether you're in the office or not. We don't have to reply on shared servers that may or not be reachable depending on location. Workflow is not interrupted and product activation is seamless.

Good tool but not enough for money

Pros: Good for organising and tagging our brand assets and stock images and easy for staff to search and find files. You can associate files together which is a handy feature.

Cons: Find it quite expensive and we will probably investigate moving to another cheaper solution soon.

"Streamlined"

What do you like best?

I like that we aren't emailing photos to each other and it can all be in one place. It also makes it a lot easier to work with photographers in different places, because they can just upload the photos directly.

What do you dislike?

It would be nice if the system was a little faster. It can be a bit clunky at times, which can be stressful if you're trying to get something done quickly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Compare the ways you are organizing photos now to the way you would like to be doing it. Then look and see if Canto solves those problems.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It eliminates emails going back and forth with huge files. It used to be a complete mess.

All assets in one place!

Pros: Canto is great for staying organized. With all digital assets in one place, it's easy to find what type of marketing collateral you're looking for. Tagging features make it even easier. Very intuitive DAM.

Cons: It's important to make sure you have guidelines in place among your team for proper naming conventions and tagging. If you implement these best practices, Canto will make things much more efficient.

Great service for keeping photos organized

Pros: I love the ability to keep our organization's photos organized through this platform. The software allows us to keep photos organized into folders and sub folders and categorized by labels and tags. This helps us tremendously to locate our images when we need them.

Cons: I wish it was a little easier to organize and edit batches of photos at a time.

Overall: Canto helps us keep our photos organized and categorized in order to easily access them when we need them and apply proper credit as needed.
