CYME announces Peakto photo manager update

France-based developer CYME announced Peakto, the macOS photo manager for amateur and professional photographers, is compatible with the latest macOS version, Ventura. CYME says Peakto is fully compatible with the Apple Photos.

This new version of Peakto also comes with a new feature: Smart Albums. Smart Albums let photographers construct dynamic photo collections based on a variety of criteria including metadata, also leveraging various scores and keywords computed by Peakto’s AI.

Peakto makes it easy for photographers to create albums based on all their photo libraries – Apple Photos, Lightroom Classic, Luminar AI/Neo, Capture One, Aperture, iView Media–and from folders and hard drives, the company said. Users can also automatically create albums based on their favorite criteria. For example, a photographer can select photos rated with 5 stars between a specific time period and that only represent people.

Criteria can be chosen from a photographer’s manual annotations (flag, keyword, color tag…), from EXIF or IPTC data (location, date, rating…), and from AI scores and categories. Thanks to image recognition, Peakto curates images per content, aesthetic score and color. It automatically classifies photos into categories (e.g.,portraits, landscapes, food, wildlife…) that can be used to create Smart Albums.

Peakto is a software for macOS, available now by subscription or pay-per-use on and on the Mac App Store.

Peakto can be tested for free for 15 days (no credit card is required on Peakto is available on a monthly plan at $9.99/month; a yearly plan at $99/year; or for a one-time purchase of $189.
