MONTPELLIER, FRANCE, June 23, 2022 / — CYME announces the release of Peakto 1.0, the first software for Mac that offers photographers a complete view of all their photos, as well as centralized and automated search at the AI help. Able to sync 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 introduces new perspectives on photo catalogs by automatically displaying images based on content, style and color. Thanks to this powerful AI trained in image recognition, photographers no longer need to annotate or classify their photos. Peakto does it for them and quickly reveals the hidden treasures in their digital files.

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

“In 2022 like never before, managing your photos is a real challenge, Peakto’s ambition is to offer the best solution to navigate through our entire photo catalogs without creating new copies and with a high level of metadata accuracy.” explains Claudia Zimmer, CEO of CYME. “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 apps. Peakto is also compatible with once popular but now unsupported software like Aperture and iView Media, allowing the latest versions of macOS 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 of this with full respect for user data since all data processing and storage is done locally.”

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

Mirroring all the original organizational structure (collections, folders, faces, annotations) so everything looks familiar and in its place/where it should be.

Built-in 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 thanks to image recognition in all photo catalogs and photo editing software.

Panorama offers a view of photos by type of content (animals, portraits, architecture, landscapes, cars…), by style (abstract, aerial…) and by color palette.

Automatic grouping of different versions of a photo and its master file, thanks to Instants. Peakto automatically creates Snapshots by analyzing image content and detecting edits of the same shots in photo editing software and photo folders.

Centralized search offers advanced filtering features: camera model, camera lens, EXIF, IPTC, faces, flags, color labels, ratings, GPS location, editing software, master file.

Search using AI-automatically applied keywords in photo catalogs.

Creation of photo albums combining images recorded in different software and separate files.

Export heterogeneous albums to disc.

Optimized for M1 (and soon for macOS Ventura and M2), Peakto requires macOS 11 (Big Sur) or later and works well on Apple M1 chips. More info >
