Canto has reintroduced the single-user version of its Cumulus digital asset management software. Based on Cumulus 8 technologies, Canto Single User offers file management for professionals, hobbyists and smaller organizations that don’t need the network (multi-user) capabilities of Canto Cumulus 8.

Available for Mac and Windows, Canto Single User catalogs and manages any type of digital file: including photos, office documents, audio, recorded TV and video, or anything else. XMP, IPTC and EXIF metadata are supported, and users can add any additional metadata they need.

File-finding options include category browsing, keyword searching, complex query construction, file relations and more. Watermarking, a built-in image editor, and file processing options enable users to manage document masters and create on-the-fly variants that are copyright-protected, format or color converted, resized and more.

Canto Single User can manage files stored on local drives, CDs/DVDs, networked computers or network attached storage appliances (NAS). Users can continue to search catalogued DVDs or other media, even when they’re offline.
