SAN FRANCISCO, California — 26 JUL 2011 — Canto partner Modula4 has released ImageSorter for Canto Cumulus Sites and the Cumulus Native Client. ImageSorter instantly sorts asset collections so that files with similar visual attributes are grouped. Cumulus users can find images more easily, and catalog editors can organize similar files for faster, more accurate metadata tagging.

“ImageSorter helps users find images in the most natural way possible—visually,” said Canto marketing director David Diamond. “Users instantly find what they need from anywhere, without any knowledge of the collection’s metadata. Every image archive should have ImageSorter.”

ImageSorter works by comparing the thumbnails of assets inside Cumulus. Thumbnails are grouped on a virtual light table that enables users to zoom, pan and make selections. ImageSorter can sort any file that displays a thumbnail in Cumulus, including PDF, InDesign, QuarkXPress, CAD and others.

ImageSorter detects and considers watermarks and other graphical elements, too, enabling users to sort on those attributes. Cumulus metadata values can be used to filter results, so users can limit results to, say, CMYK TIF files that have been approved for use.

“There’s no more efficient or enjoyable way to search for images in Cumulus,” said Modula4 CEO Jon Hornstein. “Previously available only to users of the Modula4 Web Module, we’re glad to now make ImageSorter available to all Cumulus customers.”

ImageSorter is available from Modula4 and other Canto partners worldwide.

ImageSorter will be featured in a Modula4 webinar coming in August. Register at
