The Peakto Search Plugin is Enriched with Metadata Search

May 30th, 2024 – Montpellier, France.

CYME unveils Peakto Search v1.1, its plugin for Lightroom and Capture One, with new features making it the best instant search engine dedicated to photos and videos. In addition to search by description and similar images, Peakto Search now allows metadata search. It thus becomes the “Finder” dedicated to Lightroom and Capture One, always accessible from the menu bar, offering photo previews and a video player, capable of displaying the searched content in seconds.

From now on, the Peakto Search plugin allows real-time navigation in Lightroom Classic or Capture One catalogs based on personal annotations made in these editing software. Instantly access all photos or videos rated 5 stars, or search for those tagged with specific people or keywords, regardless of the catalog where the item is located. Even if Lightroom and Capture One are closed, Peakto Search makes finding content instantaneous.

Thomas Ribreau, CYME co-founder & CPO: “Peakto Search is a plugin that adapts to all search situations encountered by photographers. Firstly, it allows you to find photos and videos that have been rated and annotated in seconds. Thanks to its previews, it provides a quick and efficient window into everything cataloged in Lightroom or Capture One. Secondly, it enables finding media that has NOT been indexed or captioned, thanks to AI that can analyze the content. There’s no need to open Lightroom or Capture One to navigate and view your images and videos. Our goal is to make Peakto Search the always-at-hand search plugin for photographers, an improved version of Finder entirely dedicated to photos and videos.”
