Peakto Search Plugin for Lightroom: advanced search across multiple catalogs

March 26, 2024 – Montpellier, France.
CYME has launched a breakthrough plugin for Lightroom, Peakto Search on macOS. This new plugin lets users experience the convenience of a real-time search interface that puts all their valuable assets just a click away. The entirety of Lightroom’s content, whether housed within open or disconnected catalogs, is now effortlessly accessible through a single search.

Thanks to its intelligent features, Peakto Search is an indispensable tool for not letting precious photo or video gems sleep in the depths of catalogs anymore, and for not losing memories:

  • Centralized search across all Lightroom catalogs, even offline: Once indexed in Peakto Search, users can search all their catalogs, ensuring access to every photo and video. Lightroom catalogs can be added in bulk by allowing Peakto Search to scan folders recursively.
  • Real-time results: image and video previews appear in real-time within the plugin, including those from offline catalogs. No need to create a selection in Lightroom, the search result appears immediately in the plugin.
  • A Search that is “Always On”: Searching through Lightroom content can be done directly from the Finder, even when Lightroom is not running. It’s possible to define a global keyboard shortcut to initiate the search at any time.
  • Prompt-based search: a simple description is enough to find an image or a passage from a video. No need for annotation, Peakto Search’s AI automatically analyzes the content of all photos and videos. The prompt-based search can be matched with filters to narrow down the results.
  • Search by similar image: simply drag and drop an image into the plugin interface to find images or videos that resemble it. Results are displayed immediately.
  • Seamless integration with Lightroom: Peakto Search allows opening search results in Lightroom and creating Collections from one or more retrieved images or videos.
  • Privacy protection: photos and videos are analyzed locally by the AI and therefore not duplicated in a cloud.
  • Beautiful UI inspired by macOS: Peakto Search is not restricted to the kind of user interface imposed by Lightroom for its plugins. Instead it uses the best of macOS animation and UI technology to bring you an unprecedented user experience right from Lightroom.
Peakto Search empowers Lightroom users with centralized and intelligent search capabilities across all their catalogs, providing instant access to any content. This saves valuable time, particularly when managing the vast number of files we accumulate.
