Canto has released , a free add-on tool for its Cumulus digital assent manager to create Web-based albums that are built on static HTML pages. The tools allows users to display images or selected parts of Cumulus catalogs on the Internet in a personalized album, which can be customized using different skins. It will convert records to a Web-ready JPEG image file format with options for thumbnails, image scaling and links to the original assets. Users can also create slideshows, produce content for local use (CD-ROM or hard disk), and upload directly using an integrated FTP client.
