Text and Number Detection

Caption Pro also utilizes text and number detection in order to quickly and accurately associate names with sports players in situations when the subjects head is out of shot or facing away from the camera.

Create and share player lists amongst your team so that everyone can caption with confidence. Changes to teams can be quickly and easily updated so your records stay up to date with the fast moving world of sport.

Selected players combine seamlessly with detected faces and are outputted through formulas into your metadata fields, cutting down the time required for your job.

Formulas Change The Game

Formulas allow you to unleash the full power of Caption Pro. Set your metadata rules once, and let Caption Pro take care of the rest.

A formula is an easy to use way of placing dynamic content in your metadata fields. Want a list of comma separated names that changes based on who is in the image? Use the people formula. Want to change a word based on the number of people in the image? Use the plural formula. Want to duplicate the contents of another field? Use the duplicate formula. Formulas can even be used to modify the filename of your exported images by automatically inserting the names of who is in the photo, or an incrementing numerical sequence.

In short, Caption Pro’s combination of formulas, facial recognition, and text detection, mean that manually filling out all your metadata fields and filenames is a thing of the past.

"...recently decided to test my old workflow against my new one with Caption Pro - I edited 64 images. In my old workflow, it took just over 16 minutes to caption (and I'm fast!). Using Caption Pro, it took 3. THREE!!!"

"Fanastic product, and great support! The app is a real timesaver - it's saved me HOURS of having to trawl through various wikipedia pages to try and identify celebrities (from a range of A-Z lists!) to identify people who I'm not familiar with."
Lucy Stewart

"It saves a huge amount of time because I no longer type out who is in the photo, especially if it is a group photo with many faces, I now just press one button to confirm who is in the photo and done! Overall it makes my workflow a-lot simpler and speedier and a must have in such a competitive industry."
