Testimonial of JF Barré for CYME

J-F Barré

Bayonne, France
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!!!

So far, the functionality is great. I’m most excited by the frequency of releases and ongoing innovation. Ultimately, I invested because of your very clear roadmap, with some confidence and trust that the features would come. Keep going!
Testimonial of Rob West

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…
Testimonial of Richard Courcet for CYME

Richard Courcet

Nantes, France

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.
Testimonial of Christopher Werby for CYME

Christopher Werbt

San Francisco, USA
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.

Frequently asked questions

What is Peakto?

Peakto is a game-changing photo organizer that gathers all your photos and videos in one app. Peakto is like the hub that centralizes all your images, no matter what hard drive they are stored on, the cloud they are saved on or the editing software they have been modified in. Peakto is like a control tower that gives you an always up-to-date and complete view of all your images.

Peakto is a Mac application that you install on your computer. You can connect all your photo and video libraries to Peakto using a simple drag and drop. Peakto will give you a preview (not a copy) of each image/video and let you navigate smartly among them (thanks to filters) without modifying your original files or your organization.

Peakto can regroup your catalogs from Apple Photos, Aperture, Lightroom & Lightroom Classic, Luminar Neo, Capture One, ON1 Photo RAW, Pixelmator Pro, DxO PhotoLab/PureRAW, FotoMagico, iView Media–and from your folders and hard drive.

You can try Peakto for free for a limited period of time. Peakto is available through either subscription (1, 12 or 24 months), or through a one-time purchase.

To obtain Peakto software, follow these steps:

  1.  Purchase Peakto: Visit the Peakto website and choose between a subscription plan or an unlimited license.
  2. Download Peakto: After completing your purchase, you will receive an email with a link to download the software.
  3. Trial Period: Note that the 7-day trial period is only available with subscription plans.


How does it work? Provide your payment information via credit card or PayPal. You will not be billed for the subscription until the end of the 7-day trial period. The free trial automatically converts to a monthly subscription (1, 12, or 24 months) unless canceled before the end of the trial period. After the trial period ends, all license purchases are final and non-refundable.

You can activate your Peakto single-user license on up to 2 computers.

Optimized for Apple Silicon (M1, M2, M3…) but runs on Mac Intel with a powerful GPU too. Peakto requires macOS 12 (Monterey) or later.

Peakto is compatible with:

  • Aperture catalogs from version 3.6
  • Lightroom Classic catalogs from version 5
  • Lightroom Creative Cloud (current version)
  • Luminar Neo catalogs from version 1.0
  • Capture One catalogs from version 20 (v13.x)
  • Apple Photos catalogs from version 6 (Big Sur)
  • iView Media Pro catalogs from version 3
  • Pixelmator Pro from version 3
  • DXO PhotoLab 4 & PureRAW 2
  • ON1 Photo RAW from version 2022
  • All Video formats natively supported by MacOS (mov, mog4….)

Peakto requires 2GB of free space, 4GB of memory (8GB recommended) and enough space to accommodate the Peakto library and database files. Peakto files can be located on external drives. A fast (SSD) drive for Peakto files is recommended.

A working copy of the supported apps (Apple Aperture, Lightroom, Capture One, iView Media Pro…) is not required when using Peakto, as Peakto opens those libraries natively.

After purchasing Peakto you will be sent all the instructions on how to quickly install Peakto and start using it.

You can find the documentation on CYME’s support desk and on our YouTube channel.

Peakto is a universal photo manager. It allows photographers to gather, view, and manage all their photos from a single interface, with the help of AI. Peakto consolidates thousands of photos and videos scattered across folders, hard drives, Apple Photos, and photo software like Aperture, Lightroom & Lightroom Classic, Luminar Neo, Capture One, ON1 Photo RAW, Pixelmator Pro, DxO PhotoLab/PureRAW, FotoMagico, iView Media. By bringing everything together in one interface, Peakto offers unique centralized photo organization features, enhanced in this new version 2.0:

See Everything

No more trying to find media by sorting through files. Peakto generates a preview of all images and videos, providing an ideal visual navigation to quickly find what you need. There’s no need to be connected to your NAS or hard drives to show your entire portfolio, organize it, and create selections. Peakto 2.0 includes a new video player and generates a contact sheet for each video to facilitate this effective and intuitive visual navigation.

Organize Everything

Peakto allows you to annotate and delete from a single interface for a unified, faster, and more relevant organization. This centralized viewpoint makes it easy to choose photos to delete and free up memory. Person identification is one of the new features of version 2.0. It allows you to identify individuals in images from multiple sources within the same interface. Using photos of the same person automatically grouped by AI, photographers can tag hundreds of shots with a single click.

Peakto enables the creation of selections from content coming from multiple sources. It serves as the control tower from which photographers manage all their images and edit a photo in their chosen editing software with a single click. Always synchronized, Peakto reflects the latest changes made to an image, and Peakto 2.0’s synchronization performance has also been accelerated.


Thanks to its central role, Peakto offers unique perspectives: automatically sorted views of all photos by category; map views of all images. Version 2.0 introduces a new Timeline view, allowing navigation through a chronological timeline and sorting images by specific dates, while adding filters. Finding Anna from the summer 2022 shoot in Venice becomes a breeze.


Peakto uses AI to save photographers time in organizing their photos. The AI can not only assign keywords automatically but also recognize the content of a photo. In this version 2, prompt-based search also applies to videos, enabling the retrieval of a specific scene in a film from a simple description. Peakto is the perfect tool to help photographers find the right content for the right project, whether in their archives or their most recent shots.

No, but you can use Avalanche to convert your catalogs.
