Culling is the process of going through all the images from a shoot and choosing the best ones (the ones you want to edit). By culling, you will get rid of duplicates and objectively bad images and you will save yourself time when it comes to editing.
Culling with a dedicated image selection tool (like Select) is very different to culling within your editing program. Select is lightning-fast, AI-powered and purpose-built to help you identify and eliminate images that you won’t want to edit.
Any professional photographer who shoots high volumes of images (especially if those images are of people) will benefit from having a dedicated image selection tool.
We have built industry leading AI that detects faces and assesses images.
Our assessments include:
Focus assessments to tell you how well your subject is in focus
Eye assessments that gives you information about when your subjects eyes are closed (blinking, kissing, looking down, etc)
Image assessments to let you know if we think there are other images within a scene that may be better than this one
Our approach is to build AI that empowers you by augmenting your already existing skill set. We don’t think of AI as some magical phenomena that can do your job for you.
We believe that tools using AI can help you to be more efficient and more accurate, but AI should not replace your ability to interpret whether a moment you have captured in a photograph is one worth sharing and celebrating.
Using Select, there are no wait times to import or navigate through your photoshoots. You can import thousands of RAWs in seconds.
There are no low res images, no loading bars and thumbnails load immediately. This makes it incredibly fast to flick through your images.
Our image assessments allow you to quickly identify potential picks from your shoot. Filtering by Potential Picks means you only need to look through half of your images to pick a great selection.
Select is built from the ground up to save you as much time as possible.
You can use Select on both macOS and Windows. View the full systems requirements here.
