​​Speed up Mac Photo Cataloging with CYME’s Peakto 1.10

December 20, 2023 – Montpellier, France.

CYME is proud to introduce version 1.10 of its cutting-edge Mac photo cataloger, Peakto. This update brings a completely revamped photo ingestion experience allowing the software to connect to photos twice as quickly and perform batch operations for immediate usability, eliminating the need to wait for full ingestion. While the application performs seamlessly on the latest Apple chips, CYME has achieved with this release the goal of making Peakto highly responsive on Intel Macs, even when handling large volumes of data.

Peakto 1.10 Faster than ever

Claudia Zimmer, CYME CEO: “During the holiday season, photographers actively dedicate time to cataloging their image collections. It was important for us to meet this deadline and deliver software capable of helping photographers in this task. We’re thrilled to announce that after 9 months of hard work, Peakto is now faster and better than ever before! With a revamped software architecture, Peakto can handle large volumes of photos with lightning speed. Throughout 2023, we’ve also added exciting new features to make the photo cataloging experience even more enjoyable. We take great pride in presenting this achievement as a valuable year-end offering to our esteemed users.

In Peakto version 1.10, users can count on an impressive performance upgrade, demonstrated by its ability to process a catalog of 12,000 photos in just 4 minutes and 30 seconds, compared to the previous 9 minutes and 30 seconds. Peakto is designed to efficiently handle even larger photo catalogs, including those exceeding 100,000 photos. This enhancement plays a pivotal role in Peakto’s mission.

Peakto consolidates a photographer’s entire image collection into a single, unified interface. Whether captured with an iPhone or a dedicated camera, stored within a photo editing software catalog or a regular folder, Peakto provides access to the photographer’s entire image library and empowers him to take simultaneous actions on all his photos. Peakto enables sorting, annotating, album creation, and utilizes artificial intelligence to simplify the photographer’s life. Its image recognition capabilities automatically categorize photos based on their content and introduce innovative search options, including description-based and similar-image searches. Peakto serves as an indispensable ally for efficient photo management.

Faster and Smoother: Improved UI

Peakto 1.10 incorporates additional enhancements, such as new features for sorting photos and the ability to auto-configure Peakto for optimal performance based on your computer. The user interface (UI) of Peakto has undergone significant improvements, especially regarding Smart Albums. These albums now come with pre-filled templates, simplifying organization for photographers. Users can create albums based on their photo metadata, the categories assigned by Peakto’s AI, or opt for custom criteria to craft albums that perfectly align with their needs. Whether it’s automatically gathering stunning wide-angle travel photos or assembling portraits, Peakto provides an automated and efficient solution for managing photos.
