Canto ( has released Cumulus 7.6, a feature
update to the digital asset management software. It’s compatible with
Mac OS X 10.4 or higher. A demo version is available for download.

Built-in rendering of PDF files leads the pack of new Cumulus 7.6
features. PDF thumbnails and previews can be generated on any
operating system — even via a web browser — without the need for
Adobe Acrobat.

Advanced PowerPoint handling is also built into Cumulus 7.6. Users
can create new PowerPoint presentations from cataloged presentations,
slides and images — with or without PowerPoint installed — even
when connected via a Web browser. Cumulus 7.6 can package the new
presentations into ready-to-go files that can be stored on thumb
drives or other portable media.
