Cyme Releases Peakto 1.0 Share This on LinkedIn   Tweet This   Forward This

22 June 2022

Cyme has announced the release of Peakto 1.0, which provides photographers "a complete view of all their photos, as well as a centralized and automated search using artificial intelligence." The new tool from the company famous for Avalanche can rread with major photo cataloging and editing software, with files stored in the cloud as well as on hard drives.

"In 2022 like never before, managing your photos is a real challenge," said Claudia Zimmer, CEO of Cyme. "Peakto's ambition is to offer the most elegant solution to navigate through the entirety of our photo catalogs without creating new copies and with a high level of metadata accuracy. This allows Peakto's AI to classify and draw unique views from our images."

FEATURES

Peakto introduces two new concepts in the cataloging game:

  • Panorama presents new perspectives on photo catalogs by automatically displaying pictures based on content, style and color. With AI trained in image recognition, you no longer need to annotate or classify their photos, the company said.
  • Instants automatically gathers the variations of a photo and its original file, whatever the editing software used, allowing you to find their originals and to trace the history of their modifications.

Peakto syncs with Finder files and folders, as well as Apple Photos, Lightroom Classic, Luminar AI/Neo and Capture One editing applications. Peakto is also compatible with Aperture and iView Media, making it possible for the newest macOS versions to access older photo catalogs.

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

Optimized for the M1 chip with macOS Ventura and M2 in development, Peakto requires macOS 11 Big Sur or later.

PRICE, AVAILABILITY

Peakto is available now by subscription or pay-per-use directly from Cyme.

The company also allows testing Peakto for seven days with a $9.99 monthly subscription, 15 days with a $99 yearly subscription or 30 days with a $189 one-time purchase.

Peakto 1.0: A Fresh Take on Photos

MONTPELLIER, France -- Cyme announces the release of Peakto 1.0, the first software for the Mac that provides photographers with a complete view of all their photos, as well as a centralized and automated search using AI. Able to synchronize with all major photo cataloging and editing software, with files stored in the cloud as well as on hard drives, Peakto introduces two totally innovative concepts.

Panorama presents new perspectives on photo catalogs by automatically displaying pictures based on content, style and color. With this powerful AI trained in image recognition, photographers no longer need to annotate or classify their photos. Peakto does it for them and expeditiously reveals the treasures hidden in their digital files.

Instants is another new concept introduced by Peakto. Instants automatically gathers all the variations of a photo and its original file, whatever the editing software used. Instants allow photographers to find their originals and to trace the history of their modifications.

"In 2022 like never before, managing your photos is a real challenge," explains Claudia Zimmer, CEO of Cyme. "Peakto's ambition is to offer the most elegant solution to navigate through the entirety of our photo catalogs without creating new copies and with a high level of metadata accuracy. This allows Peakto's AI to classify and draw unique views from our images."

Peakto syncs with files and folders, as well as Apple Photos, Lightroom Classic, Luminar AI/Neo and Capture One editing applications. Peakto is also compatible with formerly popular but now unsupported software like Aperture and iView Media, making it possible for the newest macOS versions to access older photo catalogs.

"Peakto is a solid foundation on which we will build new functions and services that will exploit the global knowledge of a photo library," shares Matthieu Kopp, CTO of Cyme. "All this while fully respecting the user's data since all processing and data storage is done locally."

Features

S-- ynchronization with photo catalogs in Apple Photos, Aperture, Lightroom Classic, Luminar 4/AI/Neo, Capture One, iView Media and, of course, with photo folders.

  • Mirroring of all the original organizational structure (collections, folders, faces, annotations) in order to make everything look familiar and right in its place/where it should be.
  • Integrated browser for easy access to all Peakto-compatible sources.
  • Instant opening of editing software directly from a given photo.
  • Automatic updates to reflect changes and additions to photo catalogs.
  • Automatic classification of photos through image recognition across all photo catalogs and photo editing software. Panorama offers a view of photos by content type (animals, portraits, architecture, landscapes, cars...), by style (abstract, aerial...) and by color palette.
  • Automatic regrouping of different versions of a photo and its master file, thanks to Instants. Peakto automatically builds Instants by analyzing the content of the image and by detecting montages of the same shots throughout photo editing software and photo folders.
  • Centralized search provides advanced filter capabilities: Camera model, Camera lens, Exif, IPTC, Faces, Flags, Color labels, Ratings, GPS location, Editing software, Master file.
  • Search using keywords automatically applied by AI across photo catalogs.
  • Creation of photo albums mixing images saved in different softwares and separate files.
  • Export heterogeneous albums to disk.
