Preview Page

  • Updated

    ~ minute read

The Preview Page is displayed when an asset is clicked on.

 

 
A preview gives a quick glance at the original asset by providing a lower resolution version of it.

A low-res preview has the great advantage of offering a very quick view of your assets while also saving bandwidth when working with Canto.
If you enter the full screen view mode you will receive a higher resolution preview of your image.

Note: The quality of the preview is fixed and cannot be adjusted in Canto.

 

On the right side, information (metadata) such as name, description, status, keywords, etc. is displayed, each in its own section. To make the display clearer, these sections can be individually expanded or collapsed. Which metadata is displayed can be configured by the administrator (see below).

 

In the top-left corner on the preview screen, you have access to certain actions such as Collections, Follow, Share and Download.

How to customize your Preview Page

  1. Choose Settings Configuration Options Custom Configurations Preview Page.
    The Layout column contains the metadata (sections) that are currently displayed on the preview page.
    Clicking the X icon moves a section to the Fields column (and thus removes it from the preview page).
    The order of the sections can be changed as desired with drag-and-drop.
    The Fields column contains the metadata (sections) that are not currently displayed on the preview page. Clicking the + icon moves a section to the Layout column (and thus displays it on the preview page).
  2. Click Save to apply your changes.

The changed configuration will apply to all users who log in from now on.
