How to upload Assets to your Main Library

  1. In the Main Library, click the + Upload Files button.
  2. You’ll be prompted to choose files from your computer. Once chosen and confirmed, the files will be uploaded into your library.

 You can also drag files from your desktop to your browser window. Dropping files in your Canto library will upload them.


Note: You can only upload assets in either the Main Library, Smart Albums, or at the Album-level. You will NOT be able to upload at the Folder-level.


User Menu > Settings > Configuration Options > Upload Settings


Metadata Upload Editor

Under Settings > Configuration Options > Upload Settings you can decide whether you want a pop up window to show up when uploading files to your library via the above described method or when using Canto Connect.

Furthermore, you can set required metadata that needs to be added when uploading to ensure a minimum of added information to your assets.


Under Settings > Configuration Options > Custom Configuration you can adjust the editor's layout to your liking.

Decide which Fields should be included by clicking the + or the symbol (1), rearrange them using drag & drop (2) and set up if you want certain fields in your layout to be opened up by default by clicking the v symbol.
