Restriction: You need to be signed in using an administrator's account in order to configure which metadata should be displayed in list view.

User Menu > Settings > Configuration Options > Defaults

There are five view options for displaying assets in Canto (left to right):

List view

Assets are displayed in a list.

As an admin you can add Custom Fields to the List View.

  1. Go to Settings > Configuration Options > Defaults > List View.
  2. Check the box next to a custom field to add it to list view.
  3. Save to apply your changes.

Note: The changed configuration applies to all users who log in from now on.

Thumbnail view

Assets are displayed as squared thumbnails.

You can change the size of the thumbnails by clicking the different sized squares.

Note: When in thumbnail view, images may appear blurry as the preview may be stretched to fit a 1x1 preview. We suggest using masonry view (see below) which is designed to maintain the original file aspect ratio.

Masonry Grid view

Assets are displayed as thumbnails with an indication of their orientation. For example, portrait photos will appear vertically while photos in landscape mode will appear horizontally.

You can change the size of the thumbnails by clicking the different sized squares.

Curated view

Display files by personalizing and organizing content in any album. Add context by giving album content a title and subtitle and also break it down into different sections if you wish.

Geo view

Geo View is a view that allows photos or videos with GPS coordinates within the metadata to be pinned to the corresponding location on a world map. 

Note: This view does not function as a filter.
