CullAi is an Ai assistant for professional photographers to select final photos from a photoshoot.
# Filters photos with objectively bad quality
- Bad lighting conditions
- Out of focus primary subjects
- Camera shake
- Closed eyes
Manually checking this for every photo is time consuming when you have lot of them.
# Adjusts filtering sensitivity
You can adjust Face Capture Quality to filter out photos having lower overall quality.
# Groups similar photos:
Grouping of similar photos enables you to compare them side by side or with blending without any manual effort.
# Adjusts grouping sensitivity
You can adjust Similarity Sensitivity and Similarity Time Gap to influence this. Higher sensitivity will group more photos together which might be less similar.
# Automatically selects better photo in group:
CullAi by default selects photo with best overall Face Capture Quality of people in that group of photos. As this is a subjective choice you can override it manually also.
# Automatically detects important people
CullAi automatically treats people who appear often in photos as more important. You can override this to indicate which people are more important.
Consider, for example, a wedding in which the bride and groom are more important than one of the guests who may also appear often in the photos.
# Keyboard Shortcuts

Best Cull "IA" app I have yet tried
Does a very good job of selecting the most valuable photo in a folder. This is the core technology that makes it a promising app. Developer has already noted valuable future features. Can't wait.

Thanks for your kind words, stay tuned, lot more coming..
Underwhelming, Try Photo Mechanic instead
Decided to download this after seeing an artlicle about it on PetaPixel. It seemd promising. However, it's a half in the bag product. Importing is decently quick. But in Photo Mechanic importing isn't necessary.
I imported 2100 images. The import took about 1min 30secs. But still It took such a long time to generate thumbnails and recognize faces. But once imported it's unclear how to manually cull images. Overall it's unclear how to use the software.
The culling flow is terrible. You have to click and image to star it as a favorite. Once you click the image, a large view displays and then you can click the star. That's too much clicking.
Very basic menu options with no real functinality in the menu. I wold not recommend purchasing this. Instead purchase Photo Mechanic. Although it's more expensive, you save time like FRICKING CRAZY culling with Photo Mechanic. I'm a wedding photographer with 19 years of experience and I can I have wasted tons of time culling with other means and through Lightroom. Best of luck!

Thanks for feedback, Assuming 2100 photos were from same photoshoot, as CullAi is meant to process photos from one photoshoot at a time. Assuming generating thumbnails took 1.5 mins, and Ai analysis took somewhere around 5 mins for 2100 photos.
We think it is efficient to go through 50-200 distinct auto culled photo groups after 5-10 mins of background Ai analysis rather than manually checking 2100 photos one by one in photo mechanic. Having said that we are working on to minimise importing and analysis time even further.
We understand shortcomings in our first version and have released 1.1, which has keyboard shortcuts for sprinting through all photo groups and Ui help elements among other things to address your concern. Please give it a try and stay tuned, we won't stop until it is fastest, accurate and feature rich culling experience.
Some of our upcoming features:
- group view showing similar image grid with all images zoomed in to faces / salient features in single key stroke
- more robust and compatible rating system
- inter operability with editing apps like Lr
We are in no way criticising Photo Mechanic, but we don't see much point in comparing CullAi to Photo Mechanic as it doesn't give ability to
1. group similar photos to compare them and better manage while culling
2. filter photos with objectively bad quality photos - out of focus, closed eyes, bad lighting
3. detect people in photoshoot to select better photos in groups of similar photos
