Ripicts Keywords Annotation Tool

What is this app?

This application designed by stock photographer for any contributing artists. Originally it was developed to use in our team internally, but then made public. It helps to speed up boring keywording process and increase quality of annotations. This application saves IPTC metadata (Title, Description, Keywords) to JPEG files. We developed this application because exiting application on the market was not flexible enough to work with keywords. We wanted to add or remove keywords to/from many images at once, see status of annotation, have application check basic requirements for stock agencies, show number of keywords and count words in description, be simple but functioning, load large images fast and show large previews.

Key features:

  • Add/Remove multiple keywords to many files
  • Edit one file metadata
  • Large and scalable previews
  • Spellcheck
  • Easy selection of images based on important criteria
  • Show keywords counts both for one image and in folder list
  • Show status of image with color background in images list for quick identification of issues
  • Save/read metadata to/from JPEG
  • Set title and description to multiple files separately
  • Fast image loading
  • Copy metadata from one file to another
  • Export metadata to text file (for videographers who have to store metadata separately)
