I’ve purchased an annual subscription and am delighted! I have added some old Aperture catalogs and I use the faces I had defined in there to find the photos and then Peakto shows me the same ones in Capture One (which of course does not do facial recognition) so I haven’t lost my old face definitions! Fantastic! Thanks so much!!!

Congrats and especially Thanks for this first initiative that will (finally!) streamline access to the various digital asset management solutions that photographers have "endured" for the past 20 years...

Peakto is an incredible product. It far exceeds the features of other image catalogues that I’ve used, and I’ve used plenty over the years. I particularly like Peakto’s approach of not trying to do everything, not moving my image files, and allowing me to edit the masters in the programs of my choosing.

Peakto is different. Finally an application that allows me to manage all of my 350,000 photos in one place. Previously spread across years of multiple Aperture and Lightroom libraries, now consolidated in one single app. The dev team actively responds with request and questions, often surprising me with better solutions than I was looking for.
