Likelihood to Recommend

Canto

Canto is well suited for a variety of different uses and a variety of companies, rather large or small. It is well suited when it comes to photo uploads and storage. It seems to have fantastic security. It is easily accessible, although I think it would be nice if they had an app.

Cloudinary handles pretty much anything you have related to images. From serving them up efficiently to adding transformations on the fly, there's really little this service doesn't do. Their pricing plans allow you to grow into the right levels and their website dashboards are very helpful. I would easily recommend this for all but the simplest of use cases.

Pros

Canto

  • I really enjoy having the shareable links that can direct outside parties to folders that have their content in them. This way I don't have to use another third-party tool like Google Drive or Dropbox to share documents with clients.
  • Sorting content is easy as well. The "My Collections" function is great in that it allows me select save files to the "My Collections" folder. This can help make it easier to find images and documents that I use most often.
  • I also like being able to filter by keywords and tags. It is important that your team utilize these correctly and have unified definitions in place before using this, though. However, this can make it much easier to find what you're looking for.

  • Cloudinary takes customer's requests for special features and implements them very quickly.

Cons

Canto

  • The tagging feature sometimes has issues, and can't recognize that a photo has the same tag if one has a capital letter and the other is lowercase
  • Changing the metadata of lots of photos at once can be difficult and slow
  • Not all user levels can delete photo albums, even if they created them

Cloudinary

  • Their API does require URLs that can get quite lengthy and not always easy to parse on sight.
  • Documentation on how transformations work and what they actually do to your image could be clearer (what does force_strip actually mean?).
  • Although a free tier exists and is quite generous, should you need to acquire a premium plan for your needs the pricing at scale can climb quickly.

Experience to date (8 mos.) has been overwhelmingly positive. Support, features, access and feedback from our user base has all been better than expected.

It is extremely easy to use as long as descriptions and tags are organized. Just type what you are looking for and it will pop up. We have team members who are not very high tech be able to learn it within a day. Very intuitive and user-friendly for the whole company.

I've had to reach out to support only the one time, but they were friendly, kind, knowledgeable, and helpful. They were able to address my issue and solve my problem on one phone call, and set up a way to ensure the issue would not happen again. Honestly, their support is one of the main reasons I would suggest this platform.

We should have planned and identified ingest and content librarian during transfer and launch. Our admins wear other hats and accountability and getting to planned milestones lagged a bit due to this.

Alternatives Considered

Canto

We evaluated a few other digital asset management systems including Dropbox, Adobe, Bynder, and Aprimo. Our checklist was to find a system that would allow us to simply keyword tag, search, share, and store - all visually with ease. Canto checked all of those boxes for us. There were aspects we liked about the other systems, but none had everything we were looking for - except Canto.

Cloudinary

Cloudinary seemed to be the most sophisticated with the most documentation and platform support. Other solutions seemed to be a lot harder to implement, however, due to the good documentation and API samples on their GitHub we were able to implement it nicely. Additionally, they have a lot of really well-known brands using them like Wired, Sky News, and eBay which gave us a lot of confidence that this was a good robust solution to use and to help others with
