Add captions and metadata to digital photos. Auto-crop multiple scanned photos with one click. VERY easy to use. Try it out free!

If you have thousands of printed and digital photos, you'll love SnipTag. It includes two tools - one speeds up scanning, and the other makes digital photos easy to organize:

- SNIP crops dozens of scanned photos with one click
- TAG adds captions and metadata to digital photos

SNIP (AUTO-CROP SCANNED PHOTOS): Scanning photos doesn't have to be slow and painful. Scan up to 8 photos at a time with any scanner, phone or digital camera. Batch-import the scans into SnipTag. They'll all be extracted and saved in the blink of an eye. In original resolution and format.

TAG (ADD CAPTIONS, METADATA TO DIGITAL PHOTOS): Want to add dates, locations, descriptions and keywords to photos? SnipTag adds captions as well as metadata in one step (A caption is text below a photo when you view or print it. Metadata is embedded info that stays in a photo even when it's exported to another computer or program.)

With SnipTag, you can caption photos in batches. Either type or dictate. All the details are also added in IPTC metadata tags, for easy organization and retrieval of photos.

SnipTag's powerful metadata editor supports more than 25 IPTC and EXIF metadata tags. Make your digital library of thousands of photos easy to manage and search.

SnipTag's Metadata Viewer shows detailed EXIF, IPTC and TIFF data for every photo. And its Photo Finder can quickly retrieve the photos you need.

SnipTag gives you full control of your photo memories. It does all the processing locally, on your Mac. Nothing is ever uploaded to any server - assuring you of complete privacy. When done, you can export photos to any computer, external drive or cloud storage.

It's a unique, useful app like no other; and dead simple to use. It's brought to you by the people who created Pic Scanner - world's first mobile app for auto-cropping multiple scanned photos - and its acclaimed successor, Pic Scanner Gold. If you use an iPhone or iPad user, check out Pic Scanner Gold today.

Works intermittently

I love the idea behind this app, but I cannot get it to work consistently.

I imported hundreds of pre-scanned images, but the auto-crop feature would not pick up the images because I scanned them touching the edges of the scanner bed.

So I painstakingly rescanned all the photos with plenty of white space around each image, exactly as described in the FAQ Autocropping Tutorial page. This improved the auto-cropping, but some of my scans randomly were not detected at all.

I cannot determine why some of my scans aren't detected but others are, even though I scanned them all exactly the same.

Switching the cropping engine yielded mixed results. With the amount of time I have spent fiddling with this app, I could have just scanned each photo one-by-one and manually cropped each one and been done sooner.

I'm going back to my Windows computer to use the ScanSpeeder app.

Hi. We would love to help you get consistent results. Could you send us a few of your scans that weren't cropped correctly? We'll analyze and let you know what happened.

Saved me HOURS of toil

Tried out scans cropping as well as metadata editing. Cropping works very well if the photos are spaced apart and kept inside the frame as the user guide says. I must have cropped thousand plus scans by now, much time and effort saved. And for metadata, last month I emailed the developers for some improvements in handling of dates. They emailed last week asking me to check the new version, and they’ve done exactly what I asked. You won’t get such service from big companies.

Developer Response ,

Thank you. We value your feedback, and are working to further enhance the app’s features - especially the user interface.

Great App! Auto-cropping Works Well!

This app is well worth the price and works as advertised. I was able to scan, update and export 120 photos in about an hour, at the rate of 4 per scan.
The UI needs some work. Holding the SHIFT key down to select a range of photos does not work, the SHIFT key works the same as the ALT key, selecting additional individual photos.
I expected holding the ALT key down while hovering over the rotate tool, would reverse the rotation, but that did not work.
After updating the date of a bunch of photos, it would be great to have an option that either sorted the photos by date, so I could see what has yet to be updated, or a flag to indicate thusly.
All in all, I'm happy with my purchase and look forward to improvements with the UI.
The auto-cropping works great and to repeat, this app is well worth the price!
