To manage your upload settings, navigate to Settings > Configuration Options > Upload Settings.

The Excluded File Types section allows you to exclude certain file types from being uploaded to your Canto account.  Separate these with a comma in the field.


The Read Metadata section allows you to choose which metadata (e.g. IPTC data) will be read from your uploaded files into Canto and applied to your assets. You can assign different settings for newly uploaded files, and for new versions of files already contained in Canto. For certain metadata you can also decide whether the values for the new version shall overwrite the old values, or school be added to the old values.


The Add a Pop Up Window Applying Metadata Directly on the Upload section allows you to have a pop up window displayed on uploads in Canto, or the Advanced Uploader & Canto Connect, in order to apply required metadata to the uploaded files. Under Required Metadata When Uploading, you can select which metadata fields are required and will be displayed in the pop up window.


Select Save in the top right corner to apply your changes.
