Canon launched a new application that uses AI to help users choose their best photos.
If you are one of those who fill the gallery with hundreds of photos, you will be interested to know Canon’s new application.
Taking hundreds of photos is easy to do with any smartphone. But choosing the best shots is not such an easy process, and most users give up the task by filling their library with thousands of repeated, poorly focused photos.
Canon launched its new software that uses its computer vision AI engine, PHIL. This new app, called Photo Culling, uses different criteria to determine which photos are the best: sharpness, emotions, digital noise. It even checks if the user has their eyes open in a selfie or portrait mode.
Using these criteria and a scoring system, the app will establish which are the best shots in a series of related photographs. And once this process is finished, it will suggest users delete the rest of the photos that did not successfully pass these criteria.
And on the other hand, it will also suggest users delete duplicate photos to free up mobile space. Of course, the application will not delete any photo without the user’s approval. It also has extra functions, which will help users to create dynamic albums using different filters like events or dates. This new offering from Canon is only available for iOS devices for now.
And while the app is free, users will have to go through a monthly or annual subscription to use all the features offered by this software. But for users who want to try it out, there’s a free trial period covering 3 days.
