Facial Recognition



How to use facial recognition in Canto - canto

Using Amazon’s powerful Rekognition service, Canto now supports Facial Recognition. Users can now apply labels to faces and search and filter images by faces. 


Note: Due to some company’s privacy concerns, Facial Recognition must be enabled by your Canto account manager upon request. This can be done at no additional charge.


Preview Page Customization

The File Preview Page can now be customized to allow users to see the metadata that’s most relevant to their media library.



Preview Metadata Information Without Opening a File




Enable the Tooltip and select Information Preview Style from the Settings / Configuration / Defaults page and users can now see the metadata by just hovering the mouse over the file.
