Canon Announces Forthcoming Photo Culling Lightroom Assistant

Pressed for time to go through your images to select the keepers? Canon has announced the imminent release of a new plugin for Adobe Lightroom Classic that will utilize artificial intelligence to sort them based on image quality.

Appropriately named Photo Culling, the plugin makes use of the company’s Computer Vision AI engine and “technical models” to analyze images for “sharpness, noise, exposure, contrast, closed eyes, and red eyes”—assigning different colored flags in Lightroom accordingly.

Settings within the “technical models” allow some control over the process, according to Canon. It’s not clear whether the plugin will work with images taken with non-Canon cameras, and it’s anybody guess what the software will do with pictures taken underwater.

Available in the first quarter of the year, the Photo Culling plugin will only be available on the Adobe Exchange App Marketplace—meaning a monthly subscription is involved. Pricing is yet to be announced.
