Automatic Keyword Generation and AI-Powered Organization

The key feature of ON1 Photo Keyword AI is its automatic keyword generation capability, eliminating the need for manually tagging photos. This app employs advanced machine learning algorithms to achieve results. The application scans each image and will recognize over 800 objects and photo elements. It will also add related keywords automatically, ensuring accurate search results. Most importantly, ON1 Photo Keyword AI works locally on your computer, so security and privacy are not of concern since none of your photos need to go up to the cloud.

Beyond tagging photos with keywords, ON1 Photo Keyword AI offers a range of additional features. It can detect faces, estimate age and gender, determine location using GPS metadata, and classify photos based on various photographic traits such as key, contrast, vividness, focal length, and predominant color. This will enable anyone to quickly locate specific images within their extensive collections, saving them valuable time and effort.

Lightning-Fast Browser and Comprehensive Metadata Support

ON1 Photo Keyword AI is built around a lightning-fast photo browser that allows users to view, organize, and cull their photos quickly. The software provides complete metadata support, including nested keywords, descriptions, EXIF, IPTC, and XMP, which ensures all relevant information is captured and easily accessible within the application. Importing photos from memory cards, cameras, or phones is a breeze with the built-in import dialog, which allows users to select images, specify destinations, rename files, and add metadata simultaneously. 

Versatile File Format Support and Advanced Search Functionality

ON1 Photo Keyword AI supports many file formats, including support for raw photos from over 800 cameras and PSD, TIF, JPG, PNG, HEVC, and most video files. Its versatile search functionality allows users to search any metadata field by typing a word or phrase. Additionally, users can search by star and color ratings, number of faces, age and gender, file type, camera settings, size, and more. These advanced search capabilities enable simultaneous searches across multiple fields, with the ability to save searches for future use as well.

Effortless Duplicate Detection and Batch Processing

Finding duplicates and similar photos is also simple to do with ON1 Photo Keyword AI. The software’s batch-processing feature allows users to export copies of their photos in different formats, customize file naming, control metadata, and even add watermarks. For photographers looking to showcase their best work, ON1 Photo Keyword AI includes a fully color-managed workflow for printing photos, with soft proofing previews, print packages, and contact sheets.

Unique Features and Integration

ON1 Photo Keyword AI sets itself apart from the competition using a browse-first approach that allows photographers to organize their photos according to their preferences without extensive cataloging or cloud uploading. The built-in import dialog simplifies downloading photos from various devices, while the automatic XMP embedding ensures that all automatic keywords and metadata remain viewable and searchable in other applications like Adobe Lightroom Classic or Capture One.

    I really wanted to like this, but it’s kind of a mess. The workflow isn’t very clean, it’s very slow if you try to do your whole collection, and like others have said there are too many useless keywords added.

    Not to mention when I sync in LR I get a bunch of tags added to my keywords.
    It also overwrites any keywords in LR you may already have put in.

    Not the keywording solution I was looking for.

      EDIT: Not to mention when I sync in LR I get a bunch of `ON1 Keyword AI` tags added to my keywords. (should not have put < > symbols in comment :P)

    I bought this, although it’s really rough in my opinion.

    First, as others point out, it keywords excessively. If it sees a patch of brick wall in the background you get a “Brick Wall” keyword even though it’s nowhere near the subject of the photo.

    Second, I have an enormous LrC keyword tree. By default, this craps all over that by putting every keyword at the top level. I fixed that with some scripting that puts everything down a level into “ON1 AI” so I can curate the keywords they add.

    With that, I think this will save me some time and help me keyword better, but I definitely will have filter through to find the few best keywords per photo.

    Thank you Don, Mike and Marty. I was getting excited about this until all y’all (plural for you all) gave me the heads up. I have used ON1 for years but this one sounds like a no for the time being.

    I can’t imagine how this is useful. Do you ever search for ’hair,’’ mammal,’ or ‘light’ and so on?

    I tag reluctantly but do add tags with terms I would search on which is much more specific than these broadly generic terms.

    And ON1 overwrites my own hard work to tag very specifically! Complete nonstarter for me.

    I was all ready to buy this until I realized it is only a stand alone product. It doesn’t help with the 90,000+ photos I already have in Lightroom because it would overwrite all the work already done on those photos. So I’ll pass until ON1 makes it a plug-in that writes keywords internally to the Lightroom metadata.

    Works best with lightroom with newly imported photos. If photos have previous lightroom edits overwriting the metadata with ON1’s keywords will also overwrite those edits
